Dominguez clinches Latin America Amateur title

Buenos Aires, Argentina (SportsNetwork.com) - Matias Dominguez carded a final- round, 1-under 71 on Sunday and he went on to win the Latin America Amateur Championship by one shot.

Dominguez finished the week at 11-under-par 277, which was one shot better than Alejandro Tosti. With the victory, Dominguez punched his ticket to play at the 2015 Masters.

Dominguez did not start off too well at Pilas Golf Club with a bogey at the first, but he responded nicely with birdies on two and four, putting him into red numbers on the day.

Following a pair of pars on five and six, Dominguez drained back-to-back birdies on seven and eight. After making the turn with three straight pars from nine, Dominguez traded a bogey on 12 for a birdie on 13.

Dominguez struggled a bit down the stretch, but bogeys on 16 and 18 did not come back to haunt him as he held on for a 1-shot victory.

Tosti also fired a 71 on Sunday and he finished at 10-under 278. Alvaro Ortiz (67) and Andre Tourinho (68) ended tied for third at 9-under 279.
