OOLTEWAH, Tenn. (AP) - M.J. Maguire won the 108th Southern Amateur by shooting a 1-under 71 on a wet and windy Saturday at The Honors Course.

The senior sports management major at North Florida finished with a 284 total and a three-stroke victory. Maguire from St. Petersburg, Florida, began playing conservatively when others struggled.

He also earned a berth in the PGA Tour's Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando.

''This is by far the biggest win of my amateur career,'' Maguire said.

Beau Hossler from California took the lead into the final round but started with a triple bogey on No. 1. He had a quadruple bogey on the par-3 No. 3 on his way to a 46 at the turn.

Virginia Tech senior Trevor Cone had the lead before going bogey-bogey-double bogey midway through the back nine. That left Geoff Drakeford of Australia with the lead until he hit two balls in the hazard on the 16th hole. A two-shot penalty on his caddy gave him a quintuple-bogey 8.
