Grady beats Tolan in extra holes to win 105th CGA Match Play

July 11-15, 2005, Bear Creek Golf Club


by Colorado Golf Association - 7/15/2005


In the 36-hole final match of the 105th CGA State Match Play Championship at Bear Creek Golf Club, Pat Grady of Omni Interlocken Resort (in white) birdied the second extra hole to defeat Derek Tolan of South Suburban Family Sports Center (in gray) and win 1 up in 38 holes. This was the first final match to go extra holes since Ron Moore won in 39 holes in 1981. For Grady, who won the 2004 CGA Junior Match Play Championship at the same course, the win was his 11th straight match won at Bear Creek. Grady also became only the 10th player to win both the CGA Junior Match Play and the CGA Match Play, the last being Shawn Wills in 2001. Grady’s name will join the likes of Steve Jones, Brandt Jobe and Hale Irwin on the Richard C. Campbell trophy, which will reside at Omni Interlocken Resort for the following year. Both Grady and Tolan will be teammates at the University of Colorado this fall, Grady as a sophomore and Tolan as a red-shirt freshman. Tolan was awarded the CGA Silver Medal as finalist, his ninth finalist or runner-up finish in CGA individual state championships without a victory.

“This was my biggest win by far,” said Grady. “I just tried to make a ton of pars, which is the best plan of attack on a great course like Bear Creek.”

Grady finished the first 18 holes with zero bogies and a 2 up lead. After a short break, Tolan regrouped and made birdies on the 19th and 20th holes to even the match. Grady immediately retook the lead on the 21st hole when Tolan missed his par putt. Another bogey by Tolan on the 23rd hole (the par-4 5th) put Grady 2 up again. Grady then made his first bogey of the match on the 24th hole to drop to 1 up. Grady mover to 2 up with a par on the 26th hole (the par-4 8th), but Tolan responded with birdies on the following two holes to pull back to even with Grady. Again, Grady immediately regained the lead 1 up with a par on the 29th hole of the match, but Tolan pulled back to even with a par on the 31st hole (the par-3 13th) when Grady’s par putt stopped less than an inch from the hole. On the 34th hole (the par-4 16th) Grady drone into the deep native grass, and ended up making bogey giving Tolan his first lead of the day going in to the last two holes. Both players halved the 35th hole and Tolan took a 1 up lead to the 18th tee. Tolan’s drive on the par-4 left him 15 yards from the green in the rough, but he was only able to make bogey from there and Grady’s par forced the match into extra holes. Both players made par on the first extra hole, and on the par-4 second hole, Grady put his second shot eight feet from the hole and Tolan missed the green. After Tolan chipped up close, Grady made the birdie to win the match.
