Written by GCAmTour.com/Portland    Sunday, 30 June 2013 23:42   

SUNRIVER, Ore. —The GOLF CHANNEL Am Tour of Portland began their Summer Series events for the 2013 season at the amazingly beautiful Crosswater Golf Club on Sunday with the Portland Open Championship. A hot and sunny day with temperatures well into the 90's welcomed the players and a demanding course layout made the day a tough challenge for scoring for all involved. With Mt. Bachelor beautifully visible on multiple holes this unique track was on full display all day long. A small field of players battled it out on this tough layout and one flight even needed an extra hole to decide things.


Palmer Flight Champion
Kevin Krueger
Palmer Flight (4.0 to 7.9 Handicaps)
In the Palmer Flight, Kevin Krueger of West Linn completed a tremendous back-side comback by winning on the first sudden death playoff hole after trailing Marcellus Osceola of Hollywood, FL by 5 strokes after the front 9. Mr. Krueger caught fire on the back by piling up back-to-back birdies on holes 9 & 10, as well as, 5 pars to close the gap and force the playoff. The playoff only lasted one hole as Mr. Krueger sealed the deal with a par on the par 4, 1st hole.

Hogan Flight Champion
Clifford Reynolds
Hogan Flight (8.0 to 11.9 Handicaps)
In the Hogan Flight, nearby Madras resident Clifford Reynolds proved that he was man enough to conquer this division leading wire-to-wire to win in the heat. Following closely behind in 2nd place was Rich Fox of Peoria, AZ who carded a solid round of 94 in the unrelenting heat of Central Oregon. Mr. Reynolds round was highlighted by four pars.

Sarazen Flight Champion
Brett Allen

Sarazen Flight (12.0 to 15.9 Handicaps)
In the Sarazen Flight, visiting Seattle Tour Player Brett Allen of Northern Idaho won going away to capture his 2nd trophy of the year by shooting an 18-over par round of 90. In solo 2nd place was NW Shootout Champion, Fred Corona of Gresham who finished with a 103 on the day. Following in 3rd place was BJ Cardinal of Ashland who carded a disappointing round of 117.

 


Jones Flight Champion
Jeffrey Gotchall
Jones Flight (16.0 to 19.9 Handicaps)
The Jones Flight was won by Jeffrey Gotchall of Milwaukie who was unopposed and carded a round of 118. Mr. Gotchall struggled on the day after crushing the face of his primary driver in the practice round the day before. He also had a great shot that landed in a burrowing animal hole as well. Gotta love a round that has that and you actually find the ball.

Senior Jones Flight Champion
Doug Tilson
Senior Jones Flight (16.0 to 19.9 Handicaps)
In the Senior Jones Flight, NW Shootout Champion Doug Tilson of Beaverton went back-to-back finishing with a round of 20-over par, 92 to win by 5-shots. In 2nd place was Bob Vidourek of Canyon City with a 97. In 3rd place was Brent Moschetti of Madras with a 101 and completing the flight was Robert Bourne of Oregon City who finished just one more shot back with a score of 102. Mr. Tilson's round was highlighted by birdies on two of the last four holes to secure the victory and some additional skins money.

Senior Snead Flight Champion
Randy Camp
Senior Snead Flight (20+ Handicaps)
In the Senior Snead Flight, Randy Camp of Albany showed that he was ready to play winning going away with his round of 100. Mr. Camp was actually unopposed on the day but it didn't stop him from playing his hear out all day long in the warm Central Oregon sun.
