PASADENA, Calif. — Having won three straight Pasadena City Championship titles from 2007 to 2009, Tim Hogarth of Northridge won his fourth by six shots on Sunday at Brookside Golf Club.
The four-time SCGA Mid-Amateur winner opened with a 66 on the shorter E.O. Noy course, and sat two shots back of the the first-round leader, and defending champion, Dan Sullivan. But Sullivan struggled during the final three rounds, all played on the longer and more difficult C.W. Koiner course, posting 75 each day and placing fifth.
Hogarth, however, combined to go five-under during those three days, including a third-round 67 to take the lead entering the final day. He finished at nine-under par 277, beating runner-up finisher Joshua Shou of Singapore by six shots.
Kevin Fitzgerald and Sean Birren, the 2012 winner, tied for third place at two-over 288.
The win is Hogarth's second on 2015 as he won his second straight Kelly Cup crown in April at Lakeside Golf Club.
