LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz. — South Carolina sophomore Blaine Woodruff wrapped up the inaugural Patriot All-America Invitational on Friday with a final-round 81 (+10) at Wigwam Golf Club.

Woodruff, who represented Army Staff Sergeant Nino D. Livaudais during the week, competed against a field that featured 84 collegiate golfers from across the nation, including 21 of the world’s top-100 ranked amateurs.
