In Chattanooga, Tenn., University of New Mexico rising senior Victor Perez steadied himself on the back nine and watched all but one player fall behind him.

Perez was 1 under on the back nine, shot a 2-over 74 during Saturday’s final round and finished in a second-place tie at the 108th Southern Amateur Championship.

Perez shot a 287 (72-70-71-74) over the 72 holes at The Honors Course and finished three strokes behind winner M.J. Maguire from St. Petersburg, Fla., who is a rising senior at North Florida. Maguire started the day tied with Perez but shot a 1-under 71 to capture a three-stroke victory over Perez and Australia’s Geoff Drakeford.

Third-round leader Beau Hossler, a rising sophomore at Texas from Mission Viejo, Calif., fell off the pace with an 8-over 80 during the final round and finished in a three-way tie for fourth at even-par 288.

Perez ran into trouble on hole Nos. 5-7, shooting bogey-bogey-double bogey to fall to 1-over for the event. But Perez kept control of the round finished the last 11 holes with three birdies and a bogey.
