WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Tom Whitney didn't think he could do. The professional golfer out of Fort Collins, Colorado, opened the final round of the Waterloo Open trailing Paul Apyan by seven strokes.

Whitney rallied with one of the best rounds in event history, shooting a 12 under par 60 over the final 18 holes.  The performance was good enough for a three stroke victory with a final score of 23 under par. The final round score fell just one stroke short of the Irv Warren course record.

Whitney rolled out of Waterloo with the $55,000 top prize for the second straight year, adding an extra $1,000 for shooting the low round of the weekend.
