Burke was a standout pitcher for the University of Miami, where he appeared in two College World Series. He works as a financial wholesaler for CNL Securities Corp.

"I've never hit a ball better in my life," said Burke, who flipped his club as if he had just stroked a walk-off home run. "I knew I was going to end it there. That was my goal with that Krank driver. (Miller's) 405 was not that big of a number, especially in these conditions. I knew he could clearly beat that."

Will Hogue and Tyler Kellett dropped out in the semifinals. Aaron Mansfield, Patrick Hopper, Jamie Sadlowski and Matt Hanger also competed.
