Hot Weather & Difficult Track Takes Its Toll
Written by GCAmTour.com/Portland    Monday, 13 August 2012 00:00   

PORTLAND, OR—The GOLF CHANNEL Amateur Tour of Portland continued their 2012 season at Heron Lakes Golf Club on the Great Blue Course Sunday with the Heron Lakes Championship.  A very warm day welcomed the players on this extremely demanding layout.  The field was filled with excitement as we near the end of several season ending awards. This tournament was the 4th of the Summer Series and players were doing all they could to improve their standing.  With this being the final events before the Tour Championship the fight for the Secret Hole Challenge, as well as, the 2012 Player of the Year has taken center stage.

Championship Flight (0 to 3.9 Handicaps)

In the Championship Flight, newcomer Scott Coffman of Washougal, WA captured his first victory in his premier event on Tour.  Mr. Coffman outlasted Nate Strand of Olympia, WA by 2-strokes to win the title.  Mr. Coffman finished with a birdie on the 18th hole to shoot a 10-over par round of 82. Mr. Strand, on the other hand, struggled all day with his new driver and down the stretch would lead him to make double-bogeys on the 16th and 17th holes to allow Mr. Coffman to seize the victory.  Mr. Strand’s round was highlighted by a birdie on the par-4, 10th hole.

 

Palmer Flight (4.0 to 7.9 Handicaps)

The Palmer Flight was won by Steve Cochran of Camas, WA who fired a round of 13-over par, 85.  Mr. Cochran was followed in 2nd place by Michael Arnot of Portland who finished just one-shot back at 86.  Mr. Cochran would make up for a slow start with some much needed pars and birdies along the way in to secure the win.  Mr. Arnot’s round fell apart a bit on the par-3, 4th hole when he took an 8.  Mr. Arnot  would remain on his heels from that point forward and allow Mr. Cochran to claim his first victory on Tour this season.  Mr. Cochran’s round was highlighted by birdies on holes #7 and #12.  Mr. Arnot, in contrast, had his lone birdie on the par-4, 3rd hole.

 

Hogan Flight (8.0 to 11.9 Handicaps)

In the Hogan Flight, Jeff Weiss of Portland stumbled into another win with a round of 10-over par, 82.  Mr. Weiss’s round was highlighted by birdies on the 2nd, 7th and 13th holes to win by 2-shots.  In 2nd Place, Craig Galloway of Portland finished with a score of 12-over par, 84. In 3rd was the Stone Creek Shootout Champion Jerry Fisk of Beaverton who fired an 85 on this extremely hot day in the sun.  Completing the flight was Clifford Reynolds of Madras who was unfortunately disqualified on the day.  With the win, Mr. Weiss is now just one more victory away from automatically qualifying for the 2012 National Championship at TPC Sawgrass in September.

 

Sarazen Flight (12.0 to 15.9 Handicaps)

The Sarazen Flight was the largest on the day and was won by Seattle Tour Member Dennis Borton of Sammamish, WA who carded an round of 11-over par, 83.  Mr. Borton pulled away early from the rest of the field and never looked back.  Following in 2nd place was newly promoted Gregory Smith of Washougal, WA who finished 7-shots back with a round of 90.  In a tie for 3rd place was Bob Barnard of Tigard and Lloyd Hurt of Washougal, WA who both fired rounds of 92.  Completing the field was Kelly Gray of Aurora who finished with a round of 96.

 

Jones Flight (16.0 to 19.9 Handicaps)

In the Jones Flight, Brent Moschetti of Madras captured his automatic qualification to Nationals with his 3rd win on Tour this season.  Mr. Moschetti finished the day at 11-over par, 83 which allowed him to win by 7 strokes.   Following in 2nd place was Fred Corona of Gresham who carded a 90.  In 3rd place, Kareen Queen of Bend fired a 93, and completing the field was Fredrick Johnson of Beaverton who shot a 99.  Mr. Moschetti’s round was highlighted by a birdie on the final hole, as well as, a final 7 holes where he was only 2-over par.  Mr. Moschetti has been preparing for the 2012 National Championship for months now and is eager to show that he has what it takes to compete on the big stage at TPC Sawgrass in September.

 

Snead Flight (20+ Handicaps)

In the Snead Flight, Keith Pearson of Phoenix, OR returned from a short break on Tour to capture his 4th victory on Tour this season.  Mr. Pearson fired a round of 100 to win going away on the day.  In 2nd place was Joseph “Joe Mac” McGinley of Milwaukie who finished with a 110 and in 3rd was Lisa Scott of Issaquah, WA who carded a 116.  Mr. Pearson got off to a tremendous start with a birdie on the par-4 1st hole and then proceeded to shoot his best front side all year long with a 5-over par, 41.   

 

SECRET HOLE: #12

 

 The TOUR season concludes at the Portland Tour Championship on August 18th and 19th at the Reserve Vineyards & Golf Club in Aloha and then Langdon Farms Golf Club in Aurora to wrap up our season.  More information can be found on our website - http://GCAmTour.com/Portland/
