ROCKLEIGH, NJ (September 18, 2016) -- A year after finishing runner-up Brian Komline was able to finish one spot better and win his second Bergen County Amateur at Rockleigh Golf Course. 2016 New Jersey Mid-Amateur champion and defending champion Trevor Randolph finished second.

In the one day 36-hole event Komline, the 2012 New Jersey Mid-Amateur champion, was able to finish 6-under and three-strokes in front of Randolph who tried to make a late run but fell short following a bogey on the 8th. Komline, playing alongside Randolph, began his final round on the 10th hole and played stellar golf in the afternoon firing a 4-under 67 to better his morning tally of 2-under 69.

"After today’s performance, I’m a lot better right now. I’m in a much better place," Komline told NorthJesery.com after his round. "I felt good, I felt confident. I hit a lot of good shots. I was chipping and putting well, and I’m feeling a lot better about where my game is right now."

On the final side Randolph, who recently played in the U.S. Mid-Amateur and lost in the Round of 32, got as close as one-stroke thanks to a birdie-birdie-eagle run. The eagle on No. 6 was the result of a 20-yard pitch shot and Randolph could have knotted things up had he made a five-foot birdie try on the 7th.

Now that the Bergen County Amateur has concluded Komline and Randolph will be teammates at the U.S. Men’s State Team Championship in just over a weeks time.
