Thank you to everyone that participated in the 2018 Bellevue City Amateur.
Congratulations to our champion, from Gonzaga University, Chris Mogg.
Mogg shot rounds of 69-65, for an 8-under total of 134. Along with Mogg, first round leader Kris Jackson (68) and Jack Strickland (70) made up the day’s final group, and they put on a show, combining to shoot 15-under as a threesome. Strickland matched Mogg with a 65 of his own, falling just one shot shy of the winning score. Jackson, our 2008 champion, followed up his 68 with another – it just wasn’t quite enough to keep up with his playing partners. Overall, it was a phenomenal display of golf, with Strickland (-7, 135) and Jackson (-6, 136) finishing in second and third place, respectively.
We would also like to recognize the champions of the second and third flights. Congratulations to Dave King and Steve Marks (net totals of 136) on their first place tie in Flight Two, and congratulations to Mari Adad (net total of 132) for his victory in Flight Three.
The payout distribution and final results are attached to the email.
Traditionally held in June, we would like to thank you all for moving with us to the month of August. Moving the event later in the calendar allowed for improved course conditions and a higher probability of good weather. We would like to thank our golf course superintendent, Tom Robinson, along with his crew, for having the course in excellent shape. Thanks also go out to the entire Pro Shop Staff and Café Staff for making sure everyone had a good time.
Please remember that you are all responsible for posting your scores.
We hope you enjoyed the tournament, and we look forward to the continued growth of this event. Thank you for playing, and we’ll see you for the 2019 Bellevue City Amateur.
