Grauman wins 91st Alameda Commuters

Ryan Grauman of Alamo held on down the stretch to win the 91st Alameda Commuters by one stroke over Matt Heitel of Redwood City on the North Course at Chuck Corica Golf Complex in Alameda.

Grauman, an 18-year-old senior at Athenian High School in Danville, posted a score of 64-72-72-67—275, 9-under-par.

“I made some poor choices on the back nine Saturday,” said Grauman, who was steady down the stretch with pars on the last three holes in the final round. “I was a bit too aggressive and also didn’t play the par 3s well.

“I didn’t want to watch the scoreboard (in the final round), but I knew I was in good position after getting to 10-under for the tournament through 14.”
