TIM HOGARTH OPENS FOUR-SHOT LEAD AT 24TH SCGA MID-AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP
MISSION VIEJO, April 23 Tim Hogarth of Northridge had never seen Mission Viejo Country Club until today when he teed off in the 24th Southern California Golf Association Mid-Amateur Championship, but it has quickly moved up the list of his favorite courses.
The 40-year-old Hogarth — who won this event in 1999, the same year he captured the California Amateur Championship — shot rounds of 70-71 — 141 and has a four-shot lead over James Meyer of Dana Point heading into the final round, which begins at 8 a.m. tomorrow (Tuesday). A total of 45 players made the cut by shooting 157 or better. The leaders will tee off at approximately 9:30 a.m. Live scoring will be at www.scga.org.
