Joe Neuheisel, son of former college football coach Rick Neuheisel, wins Arizona Amateur Championship




 

Joe Neuheisel is making a name for himself.

The son of Rick Neuheisel, who was the head coach of the college football programs at Colorado, Washington and UCLA, won the 98th Arizona Amateur Championship with a 2-and-1 victory over Camden Braidech at Desert Mountain Club's Outlaw Course in Scottsdale, Arizona, on Saturday.

Neuheisel made four straight birdies from the eighth hole through the 11th, and then won the 12th to take a 5-up lead, before claiming the championship on the 17th hole.

"It's a dream week, a lot of fun, a lot of golf, but everyone who knows me knows you can't get me off the golf course, so it was as good as it gets," said Neuheisel.

Rick Neuheisel grew up in nearby Tempe, Arizona, before playing quarterback at UCLA. Son Joe, 25, played his college golf for the Bruins as well as Boise State.
