Ryan Voois of Ladera Ranch captured the Agave Amateur Championship by one stroke over Robert Keilich of Newport Beach at Shadow Hills Golf Club in Indio.
Voois, a senior at Tesoro High School in Las Flores in Southern California, made three birdies in his first eight holes of the final round and then finished with 10 consecutive pars to nail down the victory.
“I believe I won because of my tee to green game,” said Voois, who also won the 2021 Inland Empire Amateur. “I was never in trouble off the tee and gave myself a good look at birdie nearly every hole. Coming down the stretch, I was able to hit fairway after fairway and green after green, not giving my opponents any openings.
“I’ve been making some changes to my swing to improve my consistency, and to see results so quickly gives me confidence moving forward and belief in what I am doing. I’m honored to be able to compete against this field against great junior, college, and amateur players, and feel really good about how my game can compete with theirs.”
Voois posted a winning score of 71-65-68—204, 9-under-par, while 36-hole leader Keilich wound up at 68-66-71—205, and Caden McMackin, a sophomore at Loyola Marymount, shot 72-67-67—206 to tie for third with Cooper Humphrey of Canada, who wound up at 67-68-71—206, and Brady Siravo of Sacramento, who finished at 70-65-71—206.
Eric Doyle of San Diego carded a score of 69-70-69—208 to tie for sixth with Ethan Flynn of Truckee, who totaled 70-68-70—208, Steven Deutsch of Chula Vista, who wound up at 71-67-70—208, Connor Williams of Escondido, who finished at 66-71-71—208, and Garrett Jones of Fitchburg, Wis., who came in at 68-68-72—208.
