Looking to avenge last year’s play-off loss, JJ Holen of Castaic fired a 6 under par score of 65 at
Simi Hills Golf Course on Saturday, taking a one stroke lead in the 32
Championship. One stroke back at 66 is Jonny Hogan of Solvang. Tim Hogarth of Northridge
carded a score of 68 in the first round of the two-day event.
After the first round, the Senior Championship flight leaders are Dave Crawford (Camarillo) and
Robert Valerio (Hawthorne), who both shot scores of two under par, 69. Crawford won the
Senior Competition in 2012 and is focused on a repeat championship for 2013.
