Aiden Krafft almost broke 60. “BMT” Aidan Thomas’ effort fell a hair short.
The second-round leader of the 79th Albuquerque Men’s City Championship was also its eventual champion, as University of New Mexico fifth-year senior Ross Sinclair nipped Krafft and Thomas by a shot on a toasty Sunday afternoon at Los Altos Golf Course.
Krafft set Los Altos ablaze Sunday with a remarkable 12-under par 60 that nearly led to a comeback for the ages. But Sinclair, who carded a 2-under 70, edged Krafft, a Cibola High junior, and Thomas, a New Mexico State sophomore from St. Pius, by a single shot.
