Weston Takes 106th CGA Match Play Title

July 10-14, 2006, Plum Creek Golf and Country Club


by Colorado Golf Association - 7/14/2006


CSU Player Aaron Weston (Meridian GC) defeated fellow CSU Teammate Zen Brown (Indian Tree GC) 2 and 1 in the 36-hole final match to win the 106th CGA Match Play Championship at Plum Creek Golf and Country Club. For Weston, who will play for CSU this fall in his fifth year at the university, this was the biggest win of his young career.

The match itself was ranked a “10” By CGA Executive Director Ed Mate. Weston only took a 2 up lead going into the second 18 holes of the match despite having played the first 18 three-under par. Weston extended his lead to 3 up on the 23rd hole with a birdie, only to have Brown answer with a birdie on the 24th hole to pull it back to a 2-hole deficit. On the very next hole (par-3 7th), Weston made birdie again to regain his 3 up lead. Weston birdied the next hole (Par-5 8th), but lost the hole to Brown’s eagle which pulled him back within 2 holes. Weston proceeded to birdie the next hole (his third birdie in a row, fourth in five holes) to regain a 3 up lead. Brown made a 20-foot birdie putt on the 29th hole, only to have Weston drop a 15-foot birdie on top of it to halve the hole. Weston halved the following three holes with clutch par putts ranging from five to 15 feet, then Brown birdied the 33rd hole (par-5 15th) to cut the lead to 2 holes. Weston held that lead until the match ended 2 and 1 on the 35th hole (par-3 17th) when Brown conceded Weston’s par to halve the hole. Weston had played the final 16 holes bogey-free with five birdies and had only managed to hold the 2 up lead he had taken into the final 18 holes of this remarkable match.

Weston’s name will join the likes of Babe Lind, Steve Jones, Brandt Jobe and Hale Irwin on the Richard C. Campbell trophy, which will reside at Meridian Golf Club for the following year.

Brown, who won the 2005 CGA Public Links and was the USGA medalist at the U.S. Open Local Qualifier at Lone Tree Golf Club & Hotel earlier this year, will be a sophomore at CSU this fall.
