Tom Hinde

Borger's own Bobby Barber, won last week's Miller Lite Open at the Comanche Trail Golf Complex in Amarillo. Barber opened with a sizzling 7-under 64 on Friday playing the Tomahawk layout. He took a two-shot lead into Saturday play and fell back a bit shooting a 73 at the Arrowhead layout. He still maintained a two-shot lead heading into the final round on Sunday. A huge 15-foot putt on the 54th and final hole made the difference. The putt gave Barber a narrow one-shot victory over Noble Watson. He finished with a final total of 8-under 208.

Barber's win, his fourth open individual summer major, qualified him for this year's Coors Tournament of Champions. The event is set for August 18-21 at various Amarillo layouts.
