Mikey McGinn needed a sudden death playoff to win last year. This year, he made sure no playoff was needed.
McGinn, a 2010 Porterville High graduate and a senior for the Cal Lutheran men’s golf team, defended his title at the Master’s College Invite on Tuesday. McGinn, who won the event in a playoff last year, won by four strokes after finishing Tuesday’s third and final round with a 1-under-par 71. McGinn had an up and down day through 36 holes on Monday, shooting a person best 6-under 66 in the first round before struggling to a 5-over 77 in the second round. But he came back to have a solid round on Tuesday to finish 2-under for the tournament.
