Allred Stumbles; Ryan Dillon goes Low for Southern Dunes Title

After taking a four shot lead into the final round of the inaugural eGolf Pro Tour West event at Southern Dunes. Jason Allred stumbled in his final round, posting a 1-over, 73. Eventually finishing three shots behind the winner, Ryan Dillon.

Dillon, who opened with back-to-back rounds of 69, went deep in today's final round. Carding a bogey free 9-under, 63. Winning the Championship at Southern Hills by two strokes over Michael Derminio.

The Anthem, Az. resident is not new to success on Tour. In 2012, Dillon played in seven events on the Gateway Tour, earning two victories in those seven starts. As well as never finishing outside the top-20.

Dillon began the final round, six strokes off the pace Allred set at 13-under, needing something low to even catch the leaders to give himself a chance. He did more than that.

After a par at No. 1, Dillon ran off three birdies in a row to quickly get to 9-under overall. Two more birdies on Nos. 7 and 9, would take him out, in 31. Now, 11-under overall.

A string of three birdies over his next five holes to begin the back nine, would take Dillon's score to 14-under par overall, and to the lead.

Three pars in a row from Nos. 15 to 17 would set up a final birdie on No. 18 to tie the tournament best round of 9-under (Jason Allred in round two), and an overall score of 15-under par.

That final score was good enough to hold off Michael Derminio, who carded a final round 5-under, 67. Only to come up two strokes short of Dillon's mark. Those two strokes from Derminio can be found on his score  card, with bogeys at No. 11 and No. 17.

Dillon cared rounds of 69, 69, 63 en route to the Championship at Southern Dunes victory. Taking home the title and the $11,000 purse for the event.
