Tim Hogarth of Northridge captured the 103rd Los Angeles City Men’s Golf Championship, claiming the title for a record 10th time, when he beat Blake Brothers of San Juan Capistrano by six strokes on the Wilson Course at Griffith Park in Los Angeles.
The tournament was cancelled last year because of the Coronavirus pandemic after Hogarth claimed the L.A. City title for the ninth time in 2019.
The 54-year-old Hogarth, who played golf at USC, won the Pasadena City Men’s Championship for the fourth straight time and a record ninth overall earlier this year, and also captured the Pasadena City Senior title last September.
“Winning never gets old,” Hogarth told AmateurGolf.com a few years ago. “It’s been a good run—wins in the Kelly Cup, Pasadena City and the L.A. City.”
Among Hogarth’s numerous other titles are the 2019 Ojai Senior Cup, the 2018 Los Angeles City Match Play Championship, the 2016 Southern California Match Play Championship, the 2013 SCGA Tournament of Club Champions, the Kelly Cup a record nine times and the SCGA Mid-Amateur Championship on four occasions.
Hogarth, the 1996 U.S. Amateur Public Links champion, posted a score of 65-64-73-69—271, 17-under-par, while Brothers finished at 71-71-67-68—277 and Alex Resurreccion of Long Beach was third at 73-67-69-70—279.
Ramiz Jamal of Huntington Beach was fourth at 69-75-66-70—280, followed by Cooper Hunt of El Dorado Hills at 72-70-72-70—284, while Henry Fitzhugh of San Gabriel shot 76-68-72-69—285 to tie for sixth with Yongliang of Glendora, who finished at 73-68-74-70—285.
Jaden Cantafio of Tustin was eighth at 74-72-73-68—287, while Surapat Chokprafakchat of Anaheim totaled 73-72-74-73—292 to tie for ninth with Brendan Gonzalez of Orange, who wound up at 73-71-73-75—292.
