Junior Otto Black won the Horton Smith Invitational over the weekend at the Detroit Golf Club (par-68, 5,967 yards).



Black shot two-under par 269 (68-66-72-63) over the four rounds to claim a six-shot victory over runner-ups Tom Werkmeister (72-67-73-63) and John Quigley (78-63-70-64).

The 2014-15 first-team All-Mid-American Conference honoree was at his best in Saturday’s final round, firing a five-under par 63 to capture medalist honors in a field of 34 players.

This past spring, Black ranked fourth in the MAC and second on the team with a 73.6 stroke average in 10 tournaments. He shot par or better on 10 occasions during the year, the second highest total on the squad.
