2013 Nipomo Men's Amateur Round 2
Congratulations to the 2012 Champion
And the Net Flight winner
Thank you to all who participated!
Another Nipomo Amateur, another exciting finish.
Niall Platt had a comfortable five stroke lead after his stellar first round score of 67. Scott Patterson and Justin Warthen were tied for second with the first round scores of 72.
Five strokes is a lot of ground to cover when chasing such a high caliber player like Niall.
Scott started the day with several solid iron shots but couldn’t get the putts to drop. That’s how the day went for Scott.
Justin made a late charge, gaining four strokes on holes 14 and 15 to get within one shot of Niall, with three holes left. Only to falter with a pulled four iron ricocheting off the cart path on the par 3, hole 17, proceeding to make double bogey. That left Niall plenty of breathing room to take the victory, but not before throwing in his own drama. Niall stripes three wood into the water on 18. Forced to drop at a cost of one stroke, puts his next iron shot about 15 feet. Keeping his composure and showing determination, Niall rolls in his par putt to win by 3.
Congrats to Niall.
