Hogarth wins 8th L.A. City title

Tim Hogarth of Northridge captured the 98th Annual Los Angeles City Championship by five strokes at Rancho Park Golf Course, winning the L.A. title for the eighth time.

The 49-year-old Hogarth, who played at Cal State Northridge, carded a score of 66-70-71-71–278, with Jonathan Lai of San Jose second at 70-69-69-75–283, followed by Daniel Lopez of Los Angeles at 73-68-70-73–284.

“Winning never gets old,” Hogarth, who has won three times in recent weeks, told AmateurGolf.com. “It’s been a good run–wins in the Kelly Cup, Pasadena City and now L.A. City, as well as a loss in a playoff at the Simi City.

“The lead was down to one when I holed a bunker shot for par on 12. Then on 13, I hit a punch shot from the trees within two feet and an easy birdie. Those 10 minutes were the difference between losing and winning.”

Aaron Gomez of Compton shot 73-72-69-71–285 to tie for fourth with Sean Yu of Beaumont, who totaled 72-71-69-73–285, while Joshua Su of La Canada finished at 74-73-68-71–286 to tie for sixth with Justin Chong of Granada Hills, who came in at 75-72-70-69–286.

Eric Kim of Mission Hills was ninth at 70-70-72-75–287, and Ben Doyle of La Jolla posted a score of 72-76-70-71–289 to tie for ninth with Joshua Matz of Agoura Hills, who wound up at 72-74-71-72–289.
