Callas Claims Adams Tour Title in El Paso

Brett Callas of Houston fired a final-round 68 to win the Adams Golf Pro Tour Series El Paso Sunrise Open on Sunday by three strokes over Brad Weesner.

The tournament was played on the Yucca Course at Santa Teresa Country Club.

Callas posted rounds of 69-69-64-68 to finish at 18-under 270. Weesner, of Hideaway, was at 273. Tied for third were El Pasoan Trent Ronmann, a former UTEP golfer now an assistant pro at El Paso Country Club, and Judd Cornell, of Omaha, Neb., at 274. Callas earned $20,000 with the victory.

The El Paso Times reported:

But this was Callas' day. He began slowly, making the turn at 1 under. But he put his final stamp on this tournament on the back nine, holing a bunker shot on 16 for birdie and then two-putting for birdie on 18.

"Down the stretch, I was just trying to hit fairways," Callas said, shaking his head. "I couldn't believe I reached the green in two (on 18), because I wasn't trying to. I think some adrenaline kicked in. I knew then it was probably over unless I did something horrendous."

He did not.
