MORGAN HILL, Calif. (Jan. 11, 2015) — Jonny Baxter led by two shots after day one of the AmateurGolf.com Silicon Valley Amateur and ended up winning by five shots.

A great two-day total of 137 helped Baxter, a former UC Davis golfer, close the deal thanks to a two-under par 70 on Sunday. He had four birdies and two bogeys on day two.

In second place was Roman Aragon, a freshman at St. Mary's College with a two-day total of 142. There was a two-way tie for third with Connor Blick, another St. Mary's golfer, and Ryan Gronlund -- a freshman on the SMU golf team -- at 144.

The impressive senior flight was won by first day leader Scott Anderson of Danville. His 71-75 was three better than Terry Foreman and four better than Steve Donnelly and Ralph Costanzo.

The net flight was won with a score of 152 by Bart Goldie while Annie Bowlsby won the ladies flight.

ABOUT THE AGC Silicon Valley Amateur

The Silicon Valley Amateur is the first AmateurGolf.com tournament to have, on its past winner's list, a MAJOR champion. That would be Collin Morikawa, who won the 2016 title. Just over 4 years later, he won the PGA Championship just up the road at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco.

2021 marked the announcement of Baylands Golf Links as the tournament's new host venue. And wow, did players enjoy it. It's location in Palo Alto is fitting -- as the original garage where Hewlett Packard was founded is located there, and today's biggest tech companies dot the area map like the Canadian Geese on the fairways and wetlands near Baylands in the winter. Like Corica Park in Alameda, Baylands was recently completely redesigned as a new course from the dirt up, under the hand of architect Forrest Richardson, and the results are stunning.

This is a gross competition with Championship, Senior and Women's divisions. There will be no Net division.

For players age 25- 49. Compete alongside the younger players in the Championship Division, (same tees, same prize opportunities) and if there are at least 10 Mid-Ams, a separate prize and trophy will be awarded.

For players age 65+. Compete alongside the younger players in the Senior Division, (same tees, same prize opportunities) and a separate prize and trophy will be awarded for low super senior.
