BULLARD, Texas - Jose Toledo (Guatemala City) came in to the final round tied for ninth place, and six strokes back from the lead. Toledo shot a 6-under-par 65 in round four to come from behind and get the win.
His 65 in round four was the lowest round for The East Texas Open, which was hosted at Eagles Bluff Country Club in Bullard, Texas.
Toledo entered the scoring tent with a four round total of 9-under-par 275 making him the leader in the clubhouse. There were three groups in between Toledo's pairing and the leader group, and at the 16th hole scoring checkpoint 56-hole leader Andrew Landry (Groves, Texas) was at 10-under-par.
Toledo could only wait.
Landry went on to double bogey hole 16, and did not manage to birdie holes 17 or 18 giving Toledo the trophy.
"I never saw a leaderboard … I didn't want to see how I was doing. I just kept playing and making putts," said Toledo.
Toledo earns $15,000 of the $100,000 purse. Landry finished tied for second with Daniel Fox (Perth, Australia). Toledo's first place finish was preceded by a second place finish at the Southwest Louisiana Open, placing him second on the money list with total earnings of $23,300.
The Adams Golf Pro Tour Series' next tournament is the Victoria Open, April 21-24 at the Victoria Country Club.
