John Lynch and Kevin Carll shot their second straight 4-under 67 Sunday to claim the Kaanapali Classic Pro Pro Championship title at the Royal Kaanapali Course.

Lynch, a teaching professional at Kapalua Golf and Tennis, teamed with Waialae Country Club’s Carll — who is president of the Aloha Section PGA — to win the better-ball tournament at 8-under 134 and the $1,400 first-place prize.

Lynch and Carll carded five birdies and one bogey, on the par-3 15th hole, in the final round.

“It was nice to reconnect with my old buddy from college (New Mexico State),” Carll said. “John and I were able to cover each other extremely well the last two days.”

Carll also won the event in 2015 with Kevin Hayashi.

Oahu’s Ryan Nagata and Corey Kozuma (68) finished second at 3-under 139, and Mauians Chris Armanini of Kaanapali and Andre Bedard of King Kamehameha Golf Club (69) took third at even-par 142.
