Terrific Tour Championship
Written by GCAmTour.com/Portland    Sunday, 01 September 2013 23:50   

ALOHA, Ore. —The GOLF CHANNEL Am Tour of Portland completed the 2013 Tour Season at the Reserve Vineyards & Golf Club this weekend with the Portland Tour Championship. Players were primed to capture the cup and etch their name into history as a Tour Championship winner. The weather was gorgeous with highs in the low 80's and lots of sunshine. With the late start players raced the sunshine all day long with the final group finishing with very limited light. In the end, there were multiple exciting finishes to put a cap on this season.


Championship Flight
Nate Strand
Championship Flight (Under 3.9 Handicaps)
In the Championship Flight, first round leader Adam Byrne of Camas, WA came into the day with a 3-shot lead over Kyle Koop of Coronado, CA. Mr. Byrne struggled on the day finishing in 4th place with a round of 81 and a 152 total. Mr. Koop also had trouble on the day carding a 77 for a 151 total to finish in solo 3rd place. The two players tied 4 shots back to start the day would end up tied again after this day but this time at the top with matching 75's and 150 totals to force a sudden death playoff between the pair. Both players fought hard throughout the day to establish themselves as the front runner and both would even have a putt to win in on 18 but neither was able to seal the deal. Nate Strand of Olympia, WA seemingly had the event sealed up going into the 18th with a 2-shot lead and a mid-iron in his hand to wrap it up. His shot would sail over the green though leading to a bogey while Joshua Thompson of Eagle Creek would hit his shot just off the edge of the green but pin high with a chance to make eagle for the win. When his putt ran just wide he would tap in for birdie to force the playoff. Both players moved swiftly over to the 1st hole to start the playoff and it would go 3 holes. With light dwindling, Mr. Strand would sink an estimated 35 foot putt to capture the 2013 title. Mr. Thompson has been in this situation before and was this time out played by a very worthy Champion. Congrats to all players for a great season!

Palmer Flight
Steve Cochran
Palmer Flight (4.0 to 7.9 Handicaps)
In the Palmer Flight, Steve Cochran of Camas, WA shot 87-82 over the two days for a 169 total to win by 7-strokes over Michael Arnot of Portland with a 93-83 for a 176 total to finish in solo 2nd place. Mr. Cochran's round was highlighted by 8 pars on the day. Mr. Cochran finishes the 2013 schedule with 3 wins on the year and an automatic berth into the 2013 National Championship at PGA West in La Quinta, CA.

Hogan Flight
Theo Wyatt
Hogan Flight (8.0 to 11.9 Handicaps)
In the Hogan Flight, Theo Wyatt of Clovis, CA ran away from the field with a resounding 19-shot victory. Mr. Wyatt was phenomenal over the two rounds going 78-84 for a 162 total and his final round was highlighted by a birdie on the par-4 4th hole as well as 7 pars. In 2nd place was Dayron Vargas of JBLM, WA with rounds of 89-92 for a total of 181. In 3rd place was Clifford Reynolds of Madras with rounds of 86-100 to card a 186 total over the two rounds. Congrats to Mr. Wyatt!

Sarazen Flight
Tucker Hodgen
Sarazen Flight (12.0 to 15.9 Handicaps)
In the Sarazen Flight, Tucker Hodgen of Walla Walla, WA carded rounds of 82-92 for a 174 total and an 8-shot victory. In solo 2nd place was Fred Corona of Gresham who finished with rounds of 90-92 for a 182 total. Mr. Hodgen's final round was highlighted by 4 pars and a birdie on the par-5 15th hole as well. This was Mr. Hodgen's 2nd win in as many events this season. Congrats to Mr. Hodgen on a fine performance to etch his name into history!

Jones Flight
Fredrick Johnson
Jones Flight (16.0 to 19.9 Handicaps)
The Jones Flight was won by Fredrick Johnson of Beaverton who was unopposed and carded rounds of 95-93 for a 188 total. Mr. Johnson showed signs throughout the event that he is ready to compete for more titles this coming season. We wish him the best in his pursuits. Congrats Mr. Johnson on another win for you!

Snead Flight
Joe Mac
Snead Flight (20+ Handicaps)
In the Snead Flight, Joe Mac of Milwaukie and Courtney Bowman of Tualatin went toe-to-toe throughout the weekend with fine play from both players leading to an exciting final round performance. In the end, Mr. McGinley would capture the title with rounds of 91-92 for a 183 total and a 10-shot win. Ms. Bowman fired rounds of 93-100 for a 193 total and finished the season with an amazing 5 wins. Mr. McGinley wasn't far behind with a total of 4 wins on the season. Congrats Joe Mac on a tremendous victory!

Senior Hogan Flight
Jerry Gregg
Senior Hogan Flight (8.0 to 11.9 Handicaps)
In the Senior Hogan Flight, Jerry Gregg of Redmond, WA carded rounds of 76-84 for a 160 total and hung on for a 2-shot victory over Mitchell Cohan of Seattle, WA who carded rounds of 79-83 for a 162 total. In 3rd place was Rich Fox of Peoria, AZ with rounds of 85-95 and a 180 total. Mr. Gregg's final round was highlighted by 7 pars and a birdie on the par-4 4th hole. Congrats to Mr. Gregg on a spectacular win!

Senior Sarazen Flight
Lloyd Hurt
Senior Sarazen Flight (12.0 to 15.9 Handicaps)
In the Senior Sarazen Flight, Lloyd Hurt of Washougal, WA fired rounds of 88-95 for a 183 total to win this flight. Mr. Hurt was unopposed on the weekend but that didn't hamper his efforts to play his best and finish strong again. Unfortunately, Mr. Hurt's final round was highlighted by only 5 pars on a frustrating day. But, Mr. Hurt finishes the Portland Tour season with 4 total wins. Congrats for a great season Lloyd!

Senior Jones Flight
Doug Tilson
Senior Jones Flight (16.0 to 19.9 Handicaps)
In the Senior Jones Flight, Doug Tilson of Beaverton carded two impressive rounds of 89-94 for a 183 total. This was a great flight to watch as all 5 players in the flight were within 9 shots of the lead the entire tournament and all of them had a chance to seize the victory. In 2nd place was Bob Vidourek of Canyon City with rounds of 92-96 and a 188 total. In 3rd place was Jim Morehouse, Jr. of Monmouth who fired rounds of 97-92 for a 189 total. Brent Moschetti of Madras finished in solo 4th place with rounds of 91-99 and a 190 total. Completing the field was Robert Bourne of Oregon City who carded rounds of 96-96 for a 192 total. A big thank you to Mr. Bourne for playing the most rounds on the Portland Tour this season. Mr. Tilson with the win capped off a tremendous year as he also captured the 2013 Ron Humble Player of the Year Award as well.

Ron Humble
Player of the Year Award
Doug Tilson

Ron Humble Player of the Year Award
This award goes to the player on the Portland Tour that amasses the highest point totals over the season schedule and is thus named the Player of the Year. In 2012, Ron Humble captured this award but sadly Mr. Humble passed away this year and to honor him we have renamed this Player of the Year award for him. Mr. Humble was a great man who players loved to enjoy a round of golf with or just a few moments of conversation. Ron, you are missed and we hope and pray for your wife as she goes through this tough time.

In 2013, the Ron Humble Player of the Year Award winner was Doug Tilson of Beaverton who had 4 wins on the year as well as 7 2nd place finishes. Congrats Mr. Tilson on an amazing season!

The OregonSports.net SECRET HOLE: #1 - Winners of the Secret Hole Challenge were Joshua Thompson & Adam Byrne who decided to split the winnings with their score totals of even par over the 7 secret holes.
