14 Sep 2005

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, CA (September 15, 2005) -- California Amateur champion Don DuBois of Newport Beach edged SCGA Amateur champion Scott McGihon of Bermuda Dunes by 55 points to capture the inaugural Southern California Golf Association “Player of the Year” competition. The award will be presented at the SCGA Annual Meeting on November 1 in Universal City.

DuBois, who finished high in seven events, had 875 total points, while McGihon, in four events, had 820. Recently crowned SCGA Mid-Amateur champion John McClure of West Los Angeles finished third with 730.

The 46-year-old DuBois, a title insurance executive, defeated 17-year-old Joseph Bramlett of Saratoga to win the 94th California Amateur Championship at Pebble Beach last June. DuBois, who was medalist in the 2002 state amateur, became the 25th player to win both medalist honors and also the championship. Earlier this week, DuBois reached match play in the U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship at The Honors Course in Tennessee.

The “Player of the Year” competition began with the SCGA Four-Ball Championship last November and concluded with the U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship this week. Points were awarded for the California Amateur; the SCGA Amateur, Mid-Amateur, Foursomes, Four-Ball and Tournament of Club Champions; Pacific Coast Amateur; California Community College; CIF Southern Regional and State; and five USGA championships (and their qualifyings).

The Senior POY will end with the SCGA Senior Amateur Sept. 27-28 at Pauma Valley CC. Heading into that event, Kemp Richardson leads Steve Yavorsky by 85 points.
