WPGA Amateur: Brown holds on for victory

OAKMONT, Penn. (June 14, 2011) -- David Brown stumbled to a final-round 77 but managed to hold on for the win at the 111th Western Pennsylvania Golf Association's Amateur Championship.

Brown kicked off the three-day event with a 68 and shot successive 77s to finish out the tournament.

The first-round 68 was enough of a head start to allow Brown to finish one shot better than runner up C. Mercatoris, who nearly pulled off the comeback with a final round 73.

Sean Brennan was alone in third place, finishing with a three-day total of 224.


Started in 1899 and played all but two years, 1917-18, during World War I, the West Penn Amateur is one of the oldest regional championships in the country. The 54-hole tournament starts with a field of 78 playing 36 holes the first day, with a cut to the low 32 and ties (or within seven shots of the lead) for the second day. 18 holes of stroke play qualifying held at multiple sites for non- exempt players prior to the championship.
