Oraee wins Colorado Stroke Play by four
LAKEWOOD, CO (August 10, 2014) — Before Sunday, David Oraee had shot 64 in tournament conditions a grand total of once in his lifetime.
Oraee remembers it well five years after the fact. And why not? It isn't often that a guy -- especially a 15-year-old -- wins a tournament by 18 strokes, setting an AJGA victory-margin record in the process.
And no doubt Oraee's second 64 in competition likewise will make an indelible impression. This time around, the University of Colorado golfer carded a bogey-free 6-under-par 64 in Sunday's final round of the 78th CGA Stroke Play to win by four at Lakewood Country Club.
"I've shot 60 in casual play, but to do it in a tournament is something else," said the 21-year-old (above and below) from Colorado National Golf Club. "Out here I did it bogey-free, and my goal today was to stay bogey-free no matter how many birdies I made. If I did, I thought I had a good shot at it. I did that, and the rest took care of itself."
