By Gary Baines – 02/15/2019

The Paul twins — Jeremy and Yannik Paul, both former University of Colorado golfers — did their best to monopolize the leaderboard on Friday in the Ken McDonald Classic, an Outlaw Tour event that concluded in Tempe, Ariz.

Jeremy Paul (pictured), who’s been on a tear of late, won the tournament with a remarkable total of 25-under-par 191 for three rounds, while Yannik finished fourth at 199.

Jeremy Paul shot rounds of 66-61-64, which was good for a one-stroke victory over David Cooke. The win was worth $6,000. 

The title was the third straight in less than a month for Jeremy Paul on the Outlaw Tour as he won one-day events on Jan. 21 and Feb. 8. He also has a ninth-place showing this year.

Yannik Paul went 68-64-67 and earned $1,800.
