Barry Lauderbaugh - Hogan Flight ChampionOregon City, OR—The GOLF CHANNEL Amateur Tour of Portland opened the 2012 season at Stone Creek Golf Club on Sunday with the Portland Kickoff Classic.  The exciting field featured multiple winners from the 2011 season including the Player of the Year, Gregory Smith, as well as, the Secret Hole Challenge winner, Bob Willyerd.  The day itself started out beautifully with sunshine and dry conditions, but turned cold when some clouds moved in.  Despite the rapidly changing conditions, players were eager to get this season off to a great start and they set out to try to capture the first event of the season.   

In the most exciting finish of the tournament, the Hogan Flight was won by Barry Lauderbaugh of Auburn, WA who outlasted Bob Willyerd of Beaverton in a 2-hole sudden death playoff with a birdie on the final hole.  Mr. Willyerd led the tournament for almost the entire day but when he faltered on the final two holes with a bogey, double bogey finish he allowed Mr. Lauderbaugh to make a late charge to force the playoff.  Also in this flight were Jeff Weiss of Portland with an 80, Jerry Fisk of Beaverton with an 84, Leslie Mueller of La Grande with a 90 and Harold Farnsworth of Vancouver, WA with a 96.

The Championship Flight was won by Joshua Thompson of Eagle Creek who carded a 3-over par round of 75 in his round and outlasted three others who were all just one shot back at 76.  Those three players included Chad Sorenson of Portland, Aaron Clapp of Portland and Warren Ayers of Chehalis, WA.  Mr. Thompson’s round was highlighted by birdies on holes 6, 9 and 11.  The three birdies were the most by any player in the field and gave him just enough cushion to secure his first victory as a Championship Flight player.  Completing the flight were Sean Hamer of Forest Grove with an 80, and Greg Jackson of Battle Ground, WA with an 84.

The Jones Flight was won by newcomer Fred Corona of Gresham who finished with a 91 to outlast 2011 player of the year Gregory Smith of Washougal, WA who shot 92 and Benjamin Ciobanu of Vancouver, WA who finished two shots back at 93.  All three players were tied going into the final hole of the day and Mr. Corona’s par on the final hole was the difference maker for him as Mr. Smith made bogey and Mr. Ciobanu could only manage a double bogey.  Completing the flight was Kareen Queen of Bend who finished with a score of 96.

The Senior Jones Flight was won by newcomer Brent Moschetti of Madras who finished with an 88 to win going away. Mr. Moshetti’s round was highlighted by a birdie on the par 5, 8th hole and 3 consecutive birdies on the final 3 holes.  He was followed by Doug Tilson of Beaverton with a round of 93, Walter Gotchall of Milwaukie with a 95, Wes Jones of Bend shot 97, Robert Bourne finished with a 97 as well, and Mr. Heissler of Gresham completed his day with a 114.

The Sarazen Flight was the largest flight of the tournament with a total of 10 players.  Visiting Seattle Tour player Kathy Provazek from Mercer Island, WA took the title by shooting an 11-over par round of 83.  Ms. Provazek’s round was highlighted by a birdie on the par 3 2nd hole.  Ms. Provazek was followed closely by two players just three shots back at 86, Bill Waggoner of Beaverton and Kelly Gray of Aurora.  Also competing were Lloyd Hurt of Washougal, WA with a 90, Frank Fladger of Beaverton also shot a 90, Bryan King of Eugue carded a 91, returning player Kevin Strang of Hillsboro finished with 92, Dave Wilcox of Sherwood managed a 93, Robert “BJ” Cardinal of Ashland carded a 94 and Bob Barnard of Tigard finished with a 97.

The Snead Flight was won by newcomer Jeffrey Gotchall of Milwaukee who got off to an early lead and never looked back winning  easily by 8 after he carded a 93 on the day.  Mr. Gotchall’s round was highlighted by a birdie on the par 4, 5th hole.  He bested fellow playing partner Keith Pearson of Phoenix, OR who finished with a round of 101.
