CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif (April 10, 2012) -- The 78th SCGA Amateur Net Championship concluded Tuesday, producing four champions in William Davison, Joel Keily, Teddy Collins and Clifton Tucker. The event, which was held at Industry Hill GC for the fifth straight year, boasts a field of 180 competitors who are split into four flights, based on Handicap.

Davison of Coast Golfers San Diego, and Carlos Hernandez, of Knollwood Men’s GC, were the only two competitors in the Bobby Jones flight to card a two-day score under par, finishing with a 1-under par 142. Davison was named the champion by virtue of a card off. All players played Industry Hills’ Zaharias course Monday followed by the Eisenhower course Tuesday.

“I shot really well Monday, got some breaks, and today I was striking the ball pretty well on the back nine and pulled through,” said Davison, who typically plays golf once a week. “[Industry Hills] just has a great course. I’m more of a shorter hitter, so the tighter it is, the better for me.”

Eagle Glen GC’s Joel Keily won the Jack Nicklaus flight, posting rounds of 70 and 67 for a two-day score of 6-under par 137. Kevin Brown of Santa Anita GC came in second place, finishing eight strokes behind Keily.

The Arnold Palmer flight was won by Teddy Collins of San Juan Hills GC, who had his flight’s lowest score of the day at 65. Collins low score on the Zaharias course led to his one-stroke victory over Chris Luansing of Brookside Men’s GC, who finished with a 7-under par 136.

Clifton Tucker of Brookside Men’s GC won the Ben Hogan flight, finishing with a two-day score of 5-under par 138. He bested Gregg Guevara in a card off.

“I love SCGA events,” said Davison after his win. “All SCGA events are just a lot of fun, great competition, and have really golfers."

Competitors compete over 18 holes of qualifying net stroke play to move on to the championship. A total of 180 players will qualify for the 36-hole Championship.
