Utah Championship golf: Former Champion Michael Putnam stumbled in final round

SANDY — For Michael Putnam, it seemed like a mere formality that he would walk away with the Utah Championship trophy Sunday afternoon.
The Pepperdine grad, who is built more like a defensive end than a golfer at 6-foot-4, 215 pounds, had won the same tournament on the Nationwide Tour just two years earlier and held a comfortable four-stroke lead heading into the final round. Not only was he 17-under par in the three previous days, but had been in the 60s in 13 of his previous 19 rounds at Willow Creek Country Club.
