Mason Overstreet wins 2017 Patriot All-America Invitational

Just hours before the calendar flipped to 2018, Mason Overstreet, a sophomore at the University of Arkansas, shot a final round 6-under par 64 to finish at 11-under par (199) for the tournament and win the 2017 Patriot All-America Invitational at The Wigwam in Litchfield Park, AZ. Overstreet finished six shots ahead of Austin Eckroat of Oklahoma State (-5, 205), Patrick Fishburn of BYU (-5, 205), SM Lee from Dalton State College (-5, 205), George Cunningham from the University of Arizona (-5, 205), and Garrett May of Baylor University (-5, 205). 

Overstreet, who is currently ranked 118th in the World Amateur Golf Ranking and is from Kingfisher, OK., played in honor of U.S. Army Sergeant Jesse J.J. Castro. Castro was killed during Operation Iraqi Freedom when an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle while on patrol in Hawijah, Iraq. Each golfer playing in The Patriot All-America honors a fallen or severely injured soldier by carrying a golf bag bearing the name of that soldier. Before the tournament, participants receive a card with the soldier’s story, so they can be familiar with who that person was, what they represented and how they were killed or wounded in action.

With his Patriot All-America victory, Overstreet receives a sponsor exemption into the Tour’s 2018 Air Capital Classic played June 21 - 24 at Crestview Country Club in Wichita, KS.

Overstreet’s -11 under par ties Cory Whitsett of the University of Alabama in 2011 for the lowest winning score in the tournament’s seven-year history. 

In its seventh year, The Patriot All-America Invitational featured a field of 84 PING All-America golfers from all three NCAA Divisions, NAIA and NJCAA rankings as well as from U.S. Military Academies and universities outside the United States. For more information, visit
