MONTEREY, Calif. (Oct. 17, 2013) -- Michael McCabe buried a downhill, 26-footer for birdie on the final hole to claim the 2013 Monterey Open title at Del Monte Golf Course.

The putt secured a sizzling final-round 63 which gave him a two-shot victory. It was the second straight 63 for the PGA Tour Canada member.

Overnight leader Matt Montez took second place while Mark Hubbard took third place.

J. Mulroy tied for 20th to earn low amateur honors.

ABOUT THE Monterey Open

FORMAT

Professionals and amateurs are entered into a 3- day, 54-hole, stroke-play competition. The field will be cut to the top 40 players and ties for the final 18 holes. All professional and amateur players are able to enter the open/scratch flight. Amateurs must have a valid USGA Handicap index of 3.9 or below. Net flights may be added based on availability.

HISTORY

The Monterey Open has a rich and storied history dating back to 1926, when it was won by “Light Horse” Harry Cooper in an event that included most of the top golfers in the nation—including the reigning U.S. Amateur George Von Elm, and 1927 Ryder Cup team members “Wild” Bill Melhorn, Joe Turnesa, Johnny Golden, Al Watrous, Johnny Farrell, Leo Diegel, and Al Espinosa.

The tournament missed a few years during the Great Depression, and again during WWII, but otherwise remained a popular annual event on the Del Monte Golf Course calendar. Following the WWII death of a popular Monterey golfer, The Bud Brownell Memorial Trophy was crafted by Jo Mora for engraving the names of future winners.

After a brief hiatus (the tournament was not played from 1997-2003), Del Monte Golf Course resumed the event in 2004.
