David Lipsky shot 21 spots up the leaderboard after a final-round 65 but neither he nor anyone else was going to catch Peter Uihlein at the MGM Resorts Championship at Paiute in Las Vegas.
Uihlein shot all four rounds in the 60s, capped by his final-round 69 on Sunday, to win on the Korn Ferry Tour at 16 under.
Uihlein, the 2010 U.S. Amateur champion, took the outright lead on Saturday at the Paiute Golf Resort’s Sun Mountain course and carried it over to Sunday for his first win since the 2017 Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship.
Lipsky tied for second with Jamie Lovemark, who started the day one shot off the lead. Lipsky and Lovemark each finished 12 under. Taylor Moore was solo fourth at 10 under.
The four-way tie for fifth at 9 under included Aaron Baddeley, Braden Thornberry, Nick Hardy and Sean Tuten.
Up next on the Korn Ferry Tour is the Veritex Bank Championship at Texas Rangers Golf Club in Arlington, Texas.
