Las Cruces — Clovis’ Robert Goff played the course well, but Lee Sanchez Jr. was better.

Sanchez hit a 5-under 67 on Sunday to win the Sun Country Amateur Championship at the New Mexico State University Golf Club to finish 11-under for the tournament.

Goff, who will be a senior for the NMSU golf team this fall, was tied with Sanchez going into the final round. However, he was only 3-under on the day to finish 9-under overall.

Recent Clovis High School graduate Guillermo Chavez had his best round of the tournament on Sunday with a 4-under. Chavez will play golf at the University of New Mexico beginning in the fall.
