Bodlovich wins L.A. County Amateur
LAKEWOOD, Calif. (Sept. 6, 2010) -- After a 13 year hiatus, the L.A. County Amateur returned and was hosted at two of the premier Los Angeles County golf courses, Los Verdes and Lakewood. 160 entries were received with another 10 left on the waiting list. The format for the two day event was flighted in five flights with the low 32 handicaps playing "scratch" and the remaining four flights playing with their current handicap.
Two overall champions were crowned, one for Low Gross and one for Low Net over the entire field. Low Gross honors went to Kevin Bodlovich from San Pedro with a 70 - 70, 140 total and Low Net honors went to Mike Wolter from San Juan Capistrano with 65 - 71, 136 total. They both won $500 scrip from American Golf and nice crystal trophies. The remaining four flights also named champions in Low Gross and Low Net, with each flight winners receiving crystal for their victories. A total of $5,752 was awarded in American Golf scrip to the tournament winners and top finishers.
Next year's event will be held at the same two golf courses with one twist, Lakewood will be played first and then the final held at Los Verdes. After all that was said and done, entries for next years event will for sure fill and the waiting list will only grow larger. Mark your calendars, Labor Day weekend for the 2011 L.A. County Amateur.
