Grady Earns Historic Win in CGA Public Links

June 22-24, 2007. Highland Meadows Golf Course

by Colorado Golf Association - 6/24/2007

Current CU player Patrick Grady won the CGA Public Links Championship at Highland Meadows Golf Course with an eagle on the first playoff hole to become the first player to win the CGA Public Links, Match Play (2005) and Stroke Play (2006) Championships. Grady’s victory is also his fifth CGA individual state championship title, as he also won the CGA Junior Match Play in 2004 and the Western Chapter in 2006.

Grady entered the final round five strokes behind CU teammate Michael Baird of South Suburban Family SC, who was the second round leader at 132. Grady proceeded to shot a six-under par 65 to finish at eleven-under par 202 for the tournament. With Grady in the clubhouse, Baird faced a 12-foot birdie putt on 18 to win the tournament. Baird’s putt slid just past the hole, and he made par to shoot 70 and tie Grady at 202 forcing a playoff.

On the par-5 first playoff hole, Baird’s second shot found the greenside bunker, and Grady’s second shot was a bulls-eye that came to rest two feet from the hole. Baird made par from the bunker, and then Grady tapped in his eagle putt for the victory.

This is the second year in a row the CGA Public Links has been won with an eagle on the first playoff hole as Andrew Hedrick did it at Hyland Hills GC on the par-5 first hole last year. This is also Grady’s third win in extra holes, and second against Baird. Grady’s win in the 2006 CGA Stroke Play was on the first playoff hole against Baird, and his 2005 CGA Match Play victory came on the second extra hole against CU teammate Derek Tolan.

2005 champion and CSU player Zen Brown of Indian Tree GC shot 70 in the final round to finish third at 205. Finishing fourth at 206 was Riley Arp of Collindale GC who shot his second consecutive 67 in the final round. Four players tied for fifth at 207.
