Leon Wins Adams Event in Oklahoma

Tyler Leon, a member of Dallas' golfing Leon siblings (brother Trent played collegiate golf at Oklahoma State with Tyler; sister Taylor is a non-exempt member of the LPGA Tour in 2008), was the winner of the Adams Golf Pro Tour Series event in Oklahoma on Saturday.

The 54-hole Landmark Bank Open was played at Winstar Golf Course, part of the Winstar Resort and Casino in Thackerville, Okla.

Leon shot 66 in the final round to rally to the 1-stroke victory. He birdied the 13th and 14th holes, then finished up with a birdie on No. 18 for the win. Leon finished at 15-under 201 to claim the first prize of $15,000. In five starts on the Adams Tour this year, Leon also has second-place and fifth-place finishes.

Greg Sonnier of Lake Charles, La., was in solo second.
