Fessler takes Bakersfield City Amateur
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (July 30, 2012) -- Rufie Fessler's ability to scramble and save par one hole after another kept him in contention Sunday during the final round of the Bakersfield City Amateur Golf Championship at Sundale Country Club.

But it was two late birdies by the 21-year-old Fresno State senior that allowed him to claim a thrilling one-stroke victory over a trio of challengers.

Trailing Rich Gilkey by one stroke for the top spot heading into the final hole, Fessler clinched his first City title by calmly sinking a 21⁄2-foot birdie putt just moments after Gilkey failed to make par on the 18th.
