LUDVIG ABERG HOLDS LEAD FROM START TO FINISH AT THE  SUN BOWL MARATHON ALL-AMERICA GOLF CLASSIC

EL PASO, Texas – Ludvig Aberg, a native of Eslov, Sweden and an amateur player out of Texas Tech, started the final day of the Sun Bowl Marathon All-America Classic in the lead and finished the day by hoisting the Lee Trevino Trophy in the air after marking a three-day total of 13-under-par, 200 on the par 71, 6,889 yard El Paso Country Club Course.

Aberg won the prestigious event by four strokes after posting rounds of 62-66-72. He cupped three birdies and finished 1-over-par to hold on to the lead on Tuesday, Nov. 26, 2019.

“Everyone here [in El Paso] was great and it definitely helped me stay loose during the tournament,” Aberg said.

Matthias Schmid, a native of Maxhvette, Germany, finished second with a 9-under-par 204 (68-68-68). Schmid, who plays as an amateur at Louisville made his second appearance in the Sun Bowl Marathon All-America Golf Classic and improved his play in El Paso as he finished fifth in 2018 with a three-round score of 204.

Aberg holed birdies on No. 2 and No. 3 as he held off the rest of the field to become the winner.

Mason Overstreet, who is from Kingfisher, Okla. and plays amateurly for Arkansas, finished in a tie for third with Zan Luka Stirn, an amateur who plays for Arkansas State. They both finished at 8-under-par 205. In his third and final appearance in the Sun Bowl Marathon All-America Golf Classic, Overstreet had rounds of 67-69-69, while Luka Stirn tallied rounds of 69-63-73.

UTEP’s own Oskar Ambrosius, a native of Viborg, Denmark, finished in a tie for 19th with four other players with a 1-under-par 212. He fired off rounds of 67-72-73. Ambrosius is the first UTEP golfer since Chris Baryla in 2003 to compete in the annual tournament.

This was the largest field in the 45 years of this tournament’s history.
