Dolph defeats Hom to claim Richardson Memorial title
HEWLETT HARBOR, N.Y. (Sept. 19, 2014) — Former Bucknell College golfer Ryan Hom was so close to winning the Richardson Memorial Invitational, just weeks after he won the Long Island Mid-Amateur in incredible comeback fashion.

But he ran into Kevin Dolph, a former golfer at Lehigh University, in the final, where the South Huntington, N.Y. native defeated him 3-and-1.

Dolph had previously handed No. 1 seed Hal Berman a 6-and-4 beating in the quarterfinals before advancing to the finals with 5-and-4 win over Pat Pierson. In fact, Dolph's 3-and-1 final victory over Hom was his closest match of the tournament.

Hom never led in Friday's 18-hole final, but did force the match back to all-square on the 14th after being three-down through 10. Dolph then won three consecutive holes from 15 to 17 to finish up his win.

The Richardson Memorial Invitational honors William Richardson, a legendary New York Times golf writer. The regional field plays 18 holes of qualifying before a 16-person match play event.
