While the Farmers Insurance Open completed its third round on the South Course Saturday at Torrey Pines, the APGA Tour made use of the North Course.

Former LSU star Landon Lyons won the APGA Tour Farmers Insurance Open Invitational Saturday after carding two sets of consecutive birdies over his final dozen holes to win the Torrey Pines 27-hole event at 5 under.

Reigning champion Tim O’Neal finished three shots back at 2 under to earn second place. Kevin Hall, the APGA’s 2016 Player of the Year who led early Saturday, finished third at 1 under. Lyons pulled ahead of Hall after the opening 18 holes after carding birdies on 16 and 17.

The remainder of the leaderboard finished under par in La Jolla, California.

Lyons earned $16,750 for his first-place finish out of the total purse of $60,000.

The APGA is a non-profit organization aimed at helping Black golfers and other minorities in the sport compete on the highest levels of professional golf, both on the course and in the industry itself.

Next on the APGA schedule is the APGATour Classic, Feb. 20-21 at PGA Golf Club’s Dye Course in Port St Lucie, Florida.
