Starting the day two shots back of the lead, Nick Dunlap, 14, of Birmingham fired a final round six-under 66 to win the Alabama Boys State Junior Championship. Dunlap finished at 206 (-10) five shots ahead of Tuscumbia’s Hunter Battles.

Battles held a two stroke lead heading into the final round but found him one shot back as they made the turn after carding an outward nine of 36 versus Dunlap’s 33.

Battles was unable to keep pace with Dunlap on the back nine. Dunlap proceeded to birdie holes #10, #14, #16 and #17 offset by a bogey on the tough 18th hole for an inward nine of 33 for the five stroke win.

Defending champion Padraic Sim of Spanish Fort finished in ninth place at 220 (+4).
