Hogarth wins third SCGA Player of Year Award

Tim Hogarth of Northridge earned the Southern California Golf Association’s 2014 Player of the Year Award, claiming the prize for the third time.

The 48-year-old Hogarth, who played at Cal State Northridge, edged Gunn Yang of San Diego State and South Korea, the 2014 United States Amateur champion, in the point standings.

“I’m proud of the level of consistency I was able to show this year,” said Hogarth, who also captured the award in 2009 and 2012. “My track record has always been full of very high highs and very low lows, but this year I had a chance to win almost every event I played in.

“It was difficult this year, coming close and not being able to win, but this award makes the year seem like a success. … I really enjoyed the tournaments this year. I was involved in some great battles at the SCGA Amateur, SCGA Mid-Amateur and SCGA Match Play.

“I think I learned more about myself in those events than all of the golf I’ve played in my career.”

Hogarth finished second in the SCGA Amateur Championship and SCGA Mid-Amateur Championship, reached the semifinals of the SCGA Match Play Championship and tied for third in the SCGA Public Links Championship.

In addition, Hogarth won the 2013 SCGA Tournament of Club Champions, which because of its date on the calendar factored into the 2014 Points List.

Hogarth, who won the 1996 United States Amateur Public Links Championship and the 1999 California State Amateur, said he will consider giving the Champions Tour a try when he turns 50 in two years.
