Kelly Cup: Sanders Chips in to Win

TOLUCA LAKE, Calif. (April 25, 2009)--Joe Sanders of Incline Village, NV and PGA West Golf Club won a three-way playoff on the first hole of sudden-death to win the 26th annual Kelly Cup at Lakeside Golf Club.

Going into the final round, Sanders shared the lead with Michael Rowley of San Luis Obispo at 1-over 71. Four-time defending champion Tim Hogarth of Brookside GC was three shots back after an opening 4-over 74. But on a windy day on a difficult course, Hogarth shot an even-par 70 to pull even with Rowley and Sanders, who each closed with 73s to finish at 4-over 144. Hogarth's final round was the only round of the tournament to match the par of 70.

After outdriving his opponents by 40 yards on the first playoff hole, Hogarth appeared to have the advantage when Rowley left himself 40 feet for birdie and Sanders hit his approach just over the green, 22 feet away in the light rough. But with under 100 yards in, Hogarth hit an indifferent wedge shot that finished 35 feet short of the hole.

After Rowley left his putt short and Hogarth barely missed and tapped in for par, Sanders suddenly had an opportunity, and he cashed it in, using his putter from the light rough above the hole and pouring it in to take the title. It was Sanders' first Kelly Cup win.

The Kelly Cup honors Roger Kelly, the finest amateur golfer in the history of Lakeside Golf Club. Kelly won the L.A. City Amateur, the Southern California Amateur, and two California State Amateurs, and was the club champion at Lakeside a record 11 times.
