San Antonio Match Play: Elizondo Caps His Run

SAN ANTONIO (April 9, 2006)--John Elizondo completed his run through the field with a convincing victory over Philip Hui to win the Greater San Antonio Match Play Championship at Mission del Lago Golf Club.

The win was Elizondo's first San Antonio championship.

In the final match of the consolation bracket, Nicolas Olivarri defeated Al Pineault 1 up.

The Match Play was the first San Antonio championship of the 2006 season. Next up on the schedule is the Greater San Antonio Senior Amateur, to be played May 5-7 at Woodlake Country Club.
