Alden survives; wins Men’s City Championship by one stroke.

DSC07074Jonathan Alden started the final round of the 2017 Men’s City Championship with a four shot lead.  He battled windy conditions, disaster on 16, and surging players up the leaderboard to capture the title, with a total score of 7-under par 280.

Holding the lead for more than a 54 hole stretch, it seemingly came undone on 16, when Alden posted a 9 on the downwind par 5.  Walking to the 17th tee, he found himself two strokes behind steady playing Seger Howell.  Howell’s bogey on 17 gave him a one shot lead over Alden, heading into the brutal 18th finishing hole at Jimmy Clay.  Struggling with the 18th hole previously, Seger Howell, makes double bogey at the last, giving Alden a chance…a gutsy up and down from the green side bunker solidified Alden as the winner.  A great week for Jonathan Alden, who had been playing well all year – Congratulations!

Had Alden not made the final putt, we would have had a five-way playoff at 6-under par.  Ben Carter bounced back from his third round 79 with the low final round of the day, a stellar 68.  Joining Carter, were Charles Neel White, Brian Noonan and Seger Howell at 6-under 281.  Barrett Sandefur played steady golf and birdied two of his last three to finish 5-under and take solo 5th place.  Joe Ramos, Nathan Shilling and Jake Hendrix finished at 4-under, tying for 7th.  Jay Reynolds and Matt Wernecke were the last two golfers to finish under par for the tournament at 1-under to round out the top 10.

Thanks to all involved with the City of Austin for putting on a great tournament again this year, and once again congratulations Jonathan Alden!

Jonathan Alden continued his solid play at Jimmy Clay Golf Course, shooting a 3-under par 69 to extend his lead to 4 strokes over Seger Howell, who fired a solid round of 5-under par 67.  Alden went bogey-free on the day, and Howell’s only bogey came on the final hole, as his tee shot found water.  The round of the day went to Charles Neel White, with an impressive bogey-free 9-under 63.

Brian Noonan sits 5 shots back at 9-under par; Jake Hendrix is 7 shots back at 7-under par; Charles Neel White is 8 shots back at 6-under par and Robert Evans is 9 shots back at 5-under par.  There are seven players tied at 3-under par.

The final round is tomorrow, again at Jimmy Clay Golf Course.  The live leaderboard will have scores updated as they come in.  Good luck to everyone participating.
