Playing in his hometown, Brian Helton wins Paso Robles City
PASO ROBLES, Calif. (June 7, 2015) -- Brian Helton of Paso Robles edged Fresno State’s Justin Avery in a grueling 6-hole playoff to win the Paso Robles City Amateur at Hunter Ranch Golf Course.

Helton made a critical birdie on the par 5 17th hole of regulation play to card an even par 72 to get into the two man playoff. Avery, a freshman at Fresno State, kept his cool in the 100-degree heat and matched the big hitting Helton for 5 holes in the playoff.

Helton, a former UCSB standout, has dominated amateur golf on the Central California Coast with a pair of previous wins at the Santa Barbara City Championship.

Another local standout, Brandon Gama of Santa Barbara took third place with a tap in birdie on the final hole. Kyle Rector of San Diego (and AmateurGolf.com) tied with Brian Edick of Bakersfield for 4th position at 144.
