Alex Brese captures Herald-Sun Golf Classic with 6 and 5 win over Matt Roberts
RIVERSIDE'S OWN ALEX BRESE TO FACE MATT ROBERTS FOR HERALD-SUN GOLF CLASSIC TITLE TODAY
Shhh! Make sure your golf partner isn’t around, because here’s some inside information from the No. 15 seed in the Championship Flight of The Herald-Sun Golf Classic on how he rose from near the bottom of that division and kept hanging around to reach today’s title round:
“I’ve just been playing pretty consistent, hitting greens and just trying to make pars,” Durham’s Alex Brese, the next-to-last seed in the 16-player top flight, said after his 1-up semifinal win over Creedmoor’s Britt Mitchell at Hillandale Golf Course on Saturday.
It took 19 holes for Melvin Barnes and Matt Roberts, both from Hillsborough, to determine who’d battle Brese for the championship trophy.
“Neither one of us played good. It was kind of just a dig-deep kind of game, gut-wrenching,” Roberts said. “Both of us kind of kept the other one in it.”
Barnes knew it, too. After the 18th hole, he drove off in his golf cart lecturing to himself about how he’d just given one away.
Roberts pounced, finally burying a stubborn putt that lingered for a while before making up its mind to take the dive.
“It had the line the whole way, but I didn’t know if it was going to ever get to the hole,” Roberts said. “It just kind of looked like it barely just died in there, so I guess that’s what you want.”
Definitely. It was a birdie. Barnes couldn’t match it.
The day’s first round under par belonged to Brittany Lang. The former Duke player moved to 7 over — nine shots behind co-leaders Amy Yang and Michelle Wie — with a 69 that included three birdies on the front nine and eight consecutive pars on the back before her bogey on the 18th.
