Van Sickle Rallies For 11th Collegiate Win

Update (6:04 p.m.): Link to complete recap/results

Although complete results will not be available until later this evening, I have confirmed that Mike Van Sickle has won the Palisades Collegiate Classic at Palisades Country Club in Charlotte, N.C.

Mike won by two strokes Tuesday , closing with a pair of birdies to fire a final-round 66. He finished at 16-under-par 200, one stroke shy of matching his all-time low in a 54-hole event.

I spoke with Mike's father Gary , who was still at the golf course while the final groups were wrapping up for the day, around 3:30 p.m. CT.

I later called the clubhouse -- after all golfers were finished competing -- to confirm that Mike indeed had won the event.

It's his 11th collegiate victory -- a school record -- and fifth this season. Congrats, Mike, on another great tournament.
