Bearden coach wins East Tennessee Amateur

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)-- Hats off to Knoxville's Tyler Lane! The 33-year old golf coach at Bearden high school is the winner of this year's East Tennessee Amateur Golf Tournament.

Lane won the tournament for the second year in a row, firing a three-under-par 69 on Sunday at Elizabethan Golf Course, afterwards calling it a thrill, :" It's hard to put into words, this is such a special tournament run by special people, I feel very honored and blessed to have won it again, it's not easy to win there's a lot of great players and I just couldn't be happier."

Lane's 201 total, 15 under par, gave him a five-shot victory over runner-up Nick Cohen.
