AURORA, Colo. (Sept. 24, 2013) -- Bob Cloud of Bear Creek Golf Club wasted no time in taking charge Tuesday en route to claiming the title in the second annual CGA Super-Senior Stroke Play Championship.

The 61-year-old Denver resident birdied the first two holes and shot a 6-under-par 30 on the front nine at Murphy Creek Golf Course in Aurora. And despite giving back three shots to par on the back nine -- shooting a personal tournament-best 3-under-par 69 -- Cloud won the 60-and-older event by five strokes.

Thanks largely to his eagle and four birdies on the front nine, Cloud posted nine 3s on his scorecard Tuesday as he finished at 1-under-par 143 for 36 holes. The former USGA Senior Amateur qualifier won a CGA championship for the first time.

Tom Warren of Fossil Trace Golf Club placed second at 148 following a 72 Tuesday, while Mark Runyan of Canongate Colorado was third at 149 after closing with a 71.

In the 70-and-older competition, Joe Morrill of Eagle Ranch Golf Course went birdie-eagle on his 15th and 16th holes Tuesday to earn the title. The 73-year-old shot an even-par 72, leaving him at 6-over 148. That was three strokes better than defending champion Jim Collins of the Country Club at Castle Pines, who closed with a 75.
