Lone Tree GC
August 25-26, 2012
ANTIOCH – Ben Geyer looked to make one last push for NCGA Player of the Year before his collegiate season starts in September. The St. Mary’s College senior won the Antioch City Amateur Championship at Lone Tree GC to give him 100 points in the Player of the Year race, which was good enough to pass Michael Weaver for the top spot.
The Arbuckle native played two solid rounds of golf as he finished the 36-hole competition with a 134, 10-under par, taking a two-shot victory over Grant Rappleye of Elk Grove at 136. Finishing alone in third was Geyer’s St. Mary’s teammate Mac McClung, who finished with a 138 36-hole total. Cody Robinson and Brian Swenson tied for fourth with scores of 139, to round out the top five.
James Duncan won the senior division title with a score of 142, two-under par. The Sonoma resident edged out James Williams of Orinda, who finished in second at 143. Ron Johnson of Walnut Creek took solo third with a score of 144, while Gary Vanier finished fourth at 145. Rounding out the top five were Terry Foreman and Tony McBroom, who tied for fifth, each firing scores of 147.
