Pontus Nyholm did exactly what he needed to do to win the Stitch Intercollegiate: shoot a 10-under 62 in the final round to win by three.
The Campbell junior made eight birdies and an eagle to reach 17 under and outduel NC State’s Christian Salzer, who shot a 7-under 65 in the final round to finish three shots back at 14 under.
Nyholm broke the 54-hole program record for lowest score to win his third tournament of the spring. He also earned a sponsor exemption in the Korn Ferry Tour’s Rex Hospital Open, June 3-6 at TPC Wakefield in Raleigh, North Carolina.
“Any time you have a 62, it’s a good day,” said Nyholm. “Doing it in front of all the guys and the coaches makes it extra special. My plan is to come back to the States next fall for Korn Ferry Q-School, so to get a taste this summer of what the Korn Ferry Tour is like is amazing.”
