Arkansas Taylor Moore won the inaugural Saguaro Amateur by three shots on Jan. 5.

Arkansas sophomore Taylor Moore won the inaugural Saguaro Amateur at Southern Dunes Golf Club in Maricopa, Ariz., after a final-round, 1-under 70 to finish at 12-under 201 on Sunday.

“It means a lot to win this event especially with it being the first year,” said Moore in an Arkansas press release. “The putter was working for me this week and last week. I had just one three-putt over the two tournaments and I also managed my game really well and controlled the ball going into the greens. This definitely gives me some confidence, but is just a step in the right direction in a spring full of hard work.”

Over the 54 holes, Moore carded 38 pars, 14 birdies and just two bogeys.

UNLV’s A.J. McInerney and Washington’s Trevor Simsby finished in second at 9-under 204. In a tie for fourth was Arizona State’s Grayson Murray – who lead after the first round – at 6 under.
