After an early bogey to start the final round, Lundquist pulled back into a tie for first with Pete McDade. Lundquist went on a roll on the back side, birdieing three-straight holes to take the outright lead. He added a birdied on the final hole to secure the secure the six-shot win with a final-round 68.
