Bartram Trail High graduate Julian Suri birdied four of his first five holes and went on to post the low round of the day with a 65 on Sunday, finishing second in the Portugal Open, a European PGA Tour event at the Morgado Golf and Country Club in Portimao.

Suri started the day in a tie for sixth, seven shots behind Matt Wallace of England. Wallace shot 69 to stay safely ahead, and beat Suri by three shots at 21-under-par 271 on the par-73 course.

Suri, a St. Augustine resident who plays out of the Golf Club of South Hampton, earned $60,610 for the runner-up. He is a two-time Florida high school state champion and past Florida Times-Union First Coast player of the year and an All-ACC player at Duke.
