Lindstrom Dominates CGA Mid-Amateur

September 19-21 , 2008, Columbine Country Club

by Colorado Golf Association - 9/21/2008

Jon Lindstrom of Legacy Ridge GC finished at 9-under par 207 to win the CGA Mid-Amateur Championship by a dominating six strokes at the prestigious Columbine Country Club. Lindstrom, who was tied for the lead after the first round, saved his best for last firing the tournament’s low score in the final round, a four-under 68, to earn a wire-to-wire victory – his first CGA individual title.

“This feels great,” said Lindstrom after receiving an unexpected champagne shower in celebration of his win. “The U.S. Mid-Amateur gave me a lot of confidence and I’ve been playing great since. Making the round of 16 made me realize I can play with those guys.” In addition to making the round of 16 in the U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship, Lindstrom also finished tied for second in the CGA Stroke Play Championship in August.

Lindstrom started the day three strokes ahead of 2006 champion Scott Mendelsohn of South Suburban Family SC, but quickly distanced himself shooting a three-under 33 on the front nine. He made two more birdies on the back and only one bogey to finish at four-under 68 and six strokes in front of Mendelsohn who shot 71 to finish second at 213.

Two-time champion Steve Irwin (2003, 2005) of Lakewood CC shot 71 to finish in third place at one-under 215. 2008 U.S. Mid-Amateur Sectional Qualifying medalist Michael Harrington of Kissing Camels Club also shot 71 in the final round to move into fourth place at 216, one stroke ahead of Alex Buecking who was playing on his home course. First round co-leader Jim Doidge of Pueblo CC finished tied for sixth with Columbine CC’s Paul Robinson.

The CGA Mid-Amateur trophy will reside at Lindstrom’s home club, Legacy Ridge GC, until the 2009 championship.
