Former Stanford golfer Kevin Blue wins Santa Cruz City
SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — Kevin Blue, a former Stanford University golfer who now serves as the school's Senior Associate Athletic Director, fired rounds of 69 and 70 at DeLaveaga Golf Course to win the Santa Cruz City Championship by two shots.
Blue, originally from Canada, trailed first-round leader Ryan Knop of Pleasanton by two and was tied with two other players for third place, with John Fracisco's 68 in second. Blue remained consistent, shooting 70 on Sunday while the rest of the 69s, as well as Knop and Fracisco, all shot 74 or higher.
Fresno State golfer Trevor Clayton, the 2014 Northern California Valley Amateur champion, fired 68 on day two to grab second place.
In the Senior Division, Jim Knoll's final-round 68 was 10 shots better than his first-round score and gave him a two-stroke win over Frank Pieper, whose consistent 74s gave him a runner-up finish.
