Nick Latimer Victorious in Cleveland Amateur


Cleveland Metroparks Golf

Greater Cleveland Amateur Golf ChampionshipNick Latimer of Brooklyn closed out a record-setting performance at the 2009 Greater Cleveland Amateur Golf Championship at Sleepy Hollow, shooting an even-par 71 final round on Sunday for a 54-hole total of 9-under par.

Latimer birdied three of the first four holes Sunday, eliminating any doubt as to whether or not another player might mount a final round charge. A double-bogey at 12 was the only real misstep over the course of three days, but an off-setting birdie and bogey over the final six holes locked up the lop-sided victory.

Defending champion Kyle Cobb of Strongsville posted a solid 71 on Sunday and an even par 213 over the 54 holes to finish second to Latimer.

A special thanks and congratulations to John Fiander, Mike Raby and all of the Cleveland Metroparks golf professionals. The course championships and the Cleveland Amateur have become one of the top golf events in Northeast Ohio each summer, and the level of play in the last few stagings reflects the quality of the event management. Also congratulations to Sleepy Hollow’s grounds staff for the fine conditions over the weekend.

SKINS GAME: $86 ea for Scott Heran (birdie #6), Brad Stevens (birdie #8), Dave Sotka (birdie #9), Kory Oslie (birdie #11), Matt Heestand (birdie #15) and John Iosue (birdie #18).
