HOUSTON, TX (August 1, 2005) -- Steve Gill of Sugar Land picked up his second championship win in the month of July with a victory and the 2005 State Mid Am Match Play Championship. Gill posted a 3&2 win over Randy Lance of Lufkin in the final match to earn the title. Gill had teamed with his son Brett to win the State Father-Son Championship at Riverhill Country Club earlier in July.

The championship match was a hard fought battle that went back and forth until the final few holes. Neither player was more than one up at any point until the 15th hole when Lance pulled his tee shot left and made bogey to go two down. After Gill hit his tee shot on the Par 3 16th to within 12 feet, Lance missed the green and failed to get up and down. Gill made par to secure the victory.

To get to the final Steve Gill defeated Steve Galko 2&1 in the morning semi final match. Randy Lance defeated Bob Neal on the 17th hole when he holed a pitch shot from the edge of the green for birdie to take the second semi-final 2&1.
