Grady Wins 70th CGA Stroke Play Championship in Playoff

CU player Patrick Grady of Omni Interlocken birdied the first playoff hole to win the 70th CGA Stroke Play Championship at Boulder Country Club. Grady shot 67 in the final round for a seven-under total of 273 to force a playoff with fellow CU player Michael Baird of Red Hawk Ridge GC. Baird had also shot 67 and was in the clubhouse at 273 when Grady made a bending ten-foot birdie putt on 18 to force the playoff. Grady’s tee-shot on the first playoff hole (#1) found the adjacent 18th fairway and Baird seemed to have the initial advantage. However, Grady made strong second shot over towering trees protecting the green that left him 12 feet from the hole. Baird missed his 22-foot birdie attempt, then Grady holed his birdie attempt to win the championship.

Grady, who won the 2005 CGA Match Play Championship, joined a short list of players who have won both the CGA Match Play and Stroke Play since this event began in 1937. Included on that list are names such as Babe Lind, Kent Moore, Hale Irwin, Steve Jones, and Brandt Jobe. The Tub Morris Trophy honoring the CGA Stroke Play champion will be displayed at Omni Interlocken Resort, Grady’s home club, for the next year. Baird earned the CGA Silver Medal as runner-up.

2004 champion Drew Stoltz of Fort Collins CC fired a 68 in the final round for a 274 total to finish one stroke back and tied for third place with DU’s Charles Soule of Ute Creek GC. Stoltz rimmed-out a seven-foot par put on 18 that would have tied the leaders and put him in the playoff. Soule had the lead from the start of the day until making a double bogey on 17. Soule made par on 18 to shoot 69 and finish at 274 tied with Stoltz. University of San Diego player Darrin Hall of Lakewood CC shot the tournament lowest round, a six-under 64, to move into fifth place at 279.
