EAGLE — Keith Humerickhouse of Gypsum Creek Golf Course became just the second player in history to win three consecutive Colorado Golf Association Mid-Amateur Championships as he lapped the field Sunday at Eagle Ranch Golf Course.
The left-hander, who lives in Eagle, won Sunday by a dozen shots, marking the largest victory margin in the event since Rick DeWitt posted a 14-stroke win in 1991.
Not coincidentally, Humerickhouse and DeWitt are now the only players to have won the CGA Mid-Amateur more than twice. DeWitt captured the title in the 25-and-older event seven times from 1991 through 2002, including four straight at the end of that span.
Humerickhouse completed his three-peat on Sunday with a bogey-free round of 4-under-par 68, which left the 36-year-old former golf professional with a three-day total of 11-under-par 205.
In three rounds, Humerickhouse played only two holes in over par — with a double bogey and a bogey — while he carded 14 birdies.
No other player in the field finished under par for 54 holes.
Chris Wilson of Eisenhower Golf Club, an assistant coach for the Air Force Academy golf team, claimed second place at 1-over-par 217 as a 12-foot birdie on the final hole gave him a 73 on Sunday.
Bryan Rusin, who shared the lead after the first round, tied for third place with fellow CommonGround Golf Course player Charles Santaularia. Both players closed with 71s on Sunday.
