Repeat Winners Shine At Shootout
Written by GCAmTour.com/Portland    Monday, 30 July 2012 00:00   
OREGON CITY, OR—The GOLF CHANNEL Amateur Tour of Portland continued their 2012 season at Stone Creek Golf Club on Sunday with the Stone Creek Shootout.  A gorgeous day greeted the players on this Peter Jacobsen designed layout.  The small field still yielded plenty of excitement throughout the round as players continued their push towards several season ending awards. This tournament was the 3rd of the Summer Series and players were doing all they could to improve their standing.  With only a few events left on the Tour’s regular season the fight for the Secret Hole Challenge as well as the player of the year is starting to take center stage.

Championship Flight (0 to 3.9 Handicaps)
In the Championship Flight, Nate Strand of Olympia, WA returned from a brief break to claim his third victory and solidify his spot on top of the local Championship Flight points list.  Mr. Strand overcame a 9 on the par-5, 8th hole to record a solid 3-over par round of 75. In 2nd place was Nathan Zoucha of Portland who struggled with his putter most of the day and finished at 9-over par, 81.  Mr. Strand’s round was highlighted by 5 birdies, and pars on every par-3 he played on the day.  Mr. Strand also had a sizzling backside where he carded a 3-under par 33. The backside at Stone Creek Golf Club is considered to be the harder of the two sides by far.  In contrast, Mr. Zoucha’s round was highlighted by a birdie on the par-5, 4th hole and 10 pars on the round.

 

 

Hogan Flight (8.0 to 11.9 Handicaps)
In the Hogan Flight, Jerry Fisk of Beaverton went back-to-back with consecutive wins by shooting 7-over par, 79 to win comfortably.  In 2nd place was Clifford Reynolds of Madras who was solid on the day but finished at 84, 5-shots back from Mr. Fisk.  There was a tie for 3rd place with Donald Iman of Aurora and Craig Galloway of Portland who both shot 13-over par, rounds of 85.  Mr. Fisk was the model of consistency throughout the day with 11 pars and only 7 bogeys.  There was nothing flashy to the round, but plenty of good play to get Mr. Fisk closer to qualifying for the National Championship at TPC Sawgrass in September.

Sarazen Flight (12.0 to 15.9 Handicaps)
The Sarazen Flight was won by Lloyd Hurt of Washougal, WA who coasted to a 12-shot win.  His round of 8-over par was good enough to secure Mr. Hurt’s 2nd win on Tour this season.  Following in a distant 2nd place was Kelly Gray of Aurora who finished with a round of 92.  In 3rd place was Fredrick Johnson of Beaverton who carded a 101.  Mr. Hurt’s round was highlighted by 11-pars and only one hole worse than bogey.  The 12-shot victory was the largest for Mr. Hurt so far this season and definitely shows that he is feeling much better after some early season health issues.

 

 

Jones Flight (16.0 to 19.9 Handicaps)
In the Jones Flight, Jeffrey Gotchall of Milwaukie shot a 10-over par round of 82 to complete a triumphant return to Tour play after a brief break.  Mr. Gotchall outlasted Gregory Smith of Washougal, WA who finished with an 84, as well as, Kareen Queen of Bend who carded an 86. Mr. Gotchall’s round was the lowest he has recorded all season long and definitely shows that his flight promotion earlier this season was well warranted.  Mr. Gotchall has continued to round into form all season long and it showed on this day.  This was Mr. Gotchall’s fourth win on Tour this season with the previous 3 all coming from his time playing in the Snead flight.  Today’s round was highlighted by multiple birdie tries and resulting tap in pars that allowed Mr. Gotchall to record 10 pars in total on the day.  Mr. Smith’s 2nd place finish allowed him to continue to amass points and stay in the race to repeat as the Portland Tour Player of Year.  Ron Humble of Junction City is the current leader in that race.

Senior Jones Flight (16.0 to 19.9 Handicaps)
The largest flight of the day was the Senior Jones Flight and it also provided the closest finish. Battling tooth and nail down to the wire of the round were Doug Tilson of Beaverton and Brent Moschetti of Madras.  Both players finished their rounds at 16-over par 88.  In addition, both players had chances on the final hole to close the other out.  In fact, Mr. Tilson had a one foot putt on 18 to win, but at the time he didn’t realize that that putt would have given him his first victory on Tour this season.  That putt would come back to haunt him as Mr. Moschetti would rally on the 1st playoff hole to seize the victory away.  Mr. Tilson has now finished in 2nd place in 6 tournaments this season.  For Mr. Moschetti, this was his 2nd win on Tour this season, but it has been a long time in between as his first victory came at the Portland Kickoff Classic back in March.  Following closely behind in 3rd place was Robert Bourne of Oregon City with an 89, in 4th was Bob Vidourek of Canyon City with a 90 and in 5th was Walter Gotchall of Milwaukie who finished with a round of 91.

 

Snead Flight (20+ Handicaps)
In the Snead Flight, Joseph “Joe Mac” McGinley of Milwaukie got his 2nd win of the Tour season after finishing his round at 19-over par, 91 to win going away.  In 2nd place was Paul Nelson of Happy Valley who carded a round of 105.  Mr. McGinley’s round was highlighted by a great front side where he was only 5-over par and made 6 pars over the opening 9 holes.  The backside would prove to be a bit more troublesome for Mr. McGinley as he struggled to make pars and finished with a 50 on that side.

SECRET HOLE: #8
