BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Michael McCoy won the U.S. Mid-Amateur on Thursday for his first USGA title, routing Bill Williamson 8 and 6 in the 36-hole final at the Country Club of Birmingham.

The 50-year-old McCoy, from West Des Moines, Iowa, is the second-oldest winner in the event limited to players 25 and older. Randal Lewis won the 2011 tournament at 54.

An insurance agent, McCoy was reinstated as an amateur after a brief pro career following his college days Wichita State. The 36-year-old Williamson is from Cincinnati.
