PASADENA, Calif. (May 20, 2007) -- In spite of making double bogey on the final hole of the Pasadena City Championship in the final round today, Tim Hogarth of Northridge outlasted Craig Steinberg of Oak Park to claim his Pasadena City Amateur Championship winning by one shot at Brookside GC today. He was relaxed and confident the entire day as his wife and two young sons watched and rode along in his golf cart.
The 40-year-old Hogarth had said on more than one occasion and once again Saturday evening before the event, which he has never won, "I want to get this monkey off my back." The monkey gone and Hogarth is relieved and satisfied with his round today as he shot 64-71-72-70 - 277, 9 under par for an event played over the course of four days at Brookside's two courses, the par-72 C.W. Koiner and par-70 E.O. Nay
Steinberg, one of just three people to win four SCGA Amateur titles, closed with a 68 but fell a shot short after making bogey 5 on the 18th hole. Although disappointed with the bogey at the last he was pleased with his game since revamping his swing over the last year.
Keith Kinsel of Glendale and a Brookside Men's Club member and 2004 Pasadena City Champion was the the co-leader heading into today's final round and found himself struggled most of the day posting a 2-over-par 74 today and finished three shots behind Steinberg and four shots behind Hogarth finishing in third pace.
2005 Pasadena City Champion Tye Alexander, made a Sunday run with a three under 69 and a 283 four day total, ahead of Eddie Repanich who fell to fifth with two over 74 with a four day total of 284.
