GOLF PLUS: Leon shines for Cowboys

Oklahoma State junior Trent Leon , a graduate of The IMG Academy School who trained at the David Leadbetter Golf Academy-Bradenton, captured his first college victory in the U.S. Collegiate Championship at The Golf Club of Georgia in Alpharetta.

Oklahoma State finished second as a team, three strokes behind USC.

Leon made birdies on five of his last 11 holes for a final-round 70, an 8-under 208 total and a 1-stroke victory from teammate Rickie Fowler . Former Lakewood Ranch High student Seath Lauer tied for 40th at 226.

Leon's victory helped him win the Southern Golf Association's National Amateur of the Month Award for March. He also tied for third in the Azalea Invitational at the Country Club of Charleston (S.C.), won by Zack Sucher of the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Peter Uihlein , a IMG Academy and DLGA student who will enroll next semester at Oklahoma State, finished fifth in the Azalea. Saint Stephen's graduate Michael Barbosa tied for seventh.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo tied for 34th, with rounds of 73-80-69-81.
