BRENTWOOD, Calif. (Mar. 11, 2012) -- Randy Haag added another amateurgolf.com victory to his long list. After an early departure in his second round of match play last weekend at the San Francisco City, Haag set his sights on the Diablo Valley Amateur. Coming from 6 strokes back after an opening round 75 at the Shadow Lakes Golf Course, Haag fired a second round 66 to edge out Austin Roberts of Carmichael by one stroke.
Haag finished up at 1-under par 141 for the tournament. In today’s round he made 5 birdies, 3 straight on holes 7, 8 and 9 and one bogey on the front nine alone for a 32. He followed it up with 2 more birdies and one bogey on the back side for a 34. Throw in a couple of missed 3 and 4 footers for birdie you can see why Haag said,
”I hit it VERY solid all day."
First round leader Jaskaran (Josh) Sihota, a senior at Deer Valley High in Antioch, followed his opening round 69 with a 74 and tournament total 143. Sihota didn't know it but he was leading by one stepping onto the 18th tee. He struggled to a triple bogey 8 after a wayward drive to the right and then a lay-up he hit in the hazard. He finished two strokes back in third alone.
Local farorite Mark Miller of Antioch took the senior title at 150 (79-71) by two over Ron Johnson of Walnut Creek. Johnson finished in second with a 152 (76-76.) Miller’s round included 3 birdies and two 3-putt bogeys. Terry Foreman of Antioch took third with at 156 (80-76.)
The net flight was won by Antioch’s Brian Sweeney, a maintenance mechanic at Contra Costa Water District. Sweeney played very solid, hitting 11 fairways and 11 greens and carded a 141 (71-70) four ahead of second place finisher Vincent Steele of Concord who carded a 145 (76-69.)
