ALAMEDA, Calif. (May 4, 2014) -- Jonathan De Los Reyes put a fitting end to a marvelous performance at the 2014 Alameda Commuters Sunday.

The St. Mary's College junior star shot his fourth straight round in the 60s and won by an impressive 11 shots.

De Los Reyes, who went wire-to-wire earlier this season in winning the AmateurGolf.com Wine Country Cup, shot rounds of 68-67-64-67 to claim the prestigious Bay Area title.

"It was definitely the most consistent and steadiest I've played in a while," De Los Reyes said.

Jason Anthony and Matt Williams tied for second place, a distant 11 shots behind De Los Reyes, finishing at 7-under for the tournament. Anthony shot a final-round 66 to climb the leaderboard.

Sebastian Crampton, Dash Lindsell and Austin Roberts all tied for fourth place at 4-under.

Recent San Francisco City winner Shintaro Ban took a tie for seventh place.

Pace Johnson, a star on the Cal golf team, took 13th after winning a year ago.

"I was hitting the ball well and because of that, I hit a lot of greens which left me with many birdie opportunities," De Los Reyes said. "At the same time, I putted a lot better than I have been putting in the previous weeks leading up to the tournament."

ABOUT THE Alameda Commuters

What's in a name? In the case of the Alameda Commuters Championship, the logo of the almost 90 year old tournament would be a dead giveaway. It's a steam ferry, which was the only way to "commute" to San Francisco from the East Bay before the Bay Bridge was built. Started as an informal event -- the original first prize was a bag of nails -- the tournament has grown into one of the top independent events in California.

A dedicated tournament committee prides itself on running the two weekend, 72-hole competition as if it were a PGA Tour event. Two of the best public courses at the city-owned Chuck Corica Golf Complex are prepared with care. Slick greens, Sunday pins, and even that rarity in amateur golf – spectators are all part of the fun. The roped-off scoreboard is a particular area of pride for the "green jackets" who were wearing dark green blazers before they were made popular by another tournament you might be aware of in Augusta Georgia. The 250 player championship division is cut to 50 and ties for the second weekend, at which time the 36-hole senior division tees off to join them. A notable recent past champion, and scoring record holder, is PGA Tour player Matt Bettencourt.

Note: The Senior Division is 36 holes, played on second weekend. Online registration is only available for Championship Division. Seniors should email Bob bg olf@comcast.net for an entry form.
