Andrew Maier of Green Valley Ranch Golf Club shot a 6-under-par 65 at Wellshire Golf Course on Sunday to rally for the title in the Denver’s Men’s City Amateur.

Maier made two eagles in his first eight holes on Sunday — on the par-5 first hole and the par-4 eighth — to go along with five birdies and three bogeys. He finished with a winning total of 7-under 135.

For the weekend, Maier carded two eagles and 12 birdies. And he had to overcome a quadruple-bogey 9 on the 18th hole on Saturday.

Chase Butler of Omni Interlocken placed second at 137 after a closing 70. Luke Symons of Wellshire, a former University of Colorado golfer who won the 2008 CGA Match Play, finished third at 138 after back-to-back 69s.
