University of Georgia junior golfer and Gainesville High graduate Spencer Ralston carded a final-round 68 (3-under par) in the final round Tuesday at the Sun Bowl Marathon All-American Classic in El Paso, Texas. His three-day total of 13-under par put him in a tie with the University of Oklahoma’s Quade Cummins after 54 holes. After a one-hole playoff, Ralston took second place when his par was one shot back of Cummins’ birdie.

Ralston’s best day was a 7-under par second round where he carded four straight birdies on the back nine, and six on the final eight holes. 

In the first round Sunday, Ralston carded a 3-under par.

Cummins stormed back to win with a 9-under par on the final 18 holes. The Sooners’ golfer had nine birdies and no bogeys during the final round. 

Ralston’s 13-under par was one-shot better than his previous tournament best, which came at the 2018 Linger Longer Invitational.
