Mooney Takes CGA Senior Match in 19 Holes

May 15-19, 2000, Los Verdes Golf Club


by Colorado Golf Association - 5/19/2000


It took Pat Mooney (pictured) of Meridian Golf Club 19 holes to defeat Jim Brown of Fox Hill Country Club in the final match of the CGA Senior Match Play Championship at Los Verdes Golf Club in Denver. But he could have ended it on the par-three 17th. Mooney had just won 16 to go 1 up in the match when he stuck his tee shot on 17 just 12 feet from the flagstick. However, he was unable to convert, and tied the hole. Brown then birdied the par-five 18th to even the match and send it to a playoff. On the first playoff hole, Mooney tapped in for par, and Brown was left with a 6-foot par putt. When Brown's putt came to rest just inches from the hole, Mooney claimed his first CGA Senior Match Play title.

"Winning the State Amateur Senior Match is the greatest accomplishment of my golf career," said Mooney, who is a two-time US Mid-Amateur Championship qualifier. "I really wanted to win it on 17 with a birdie, but just winning it is awesome. It was a great match.

Mooney earned his place in the final match by defeating Charlie Post of Plum Creek Golf & Country Club 2 and 1 earlier in the day. Brown's 1 up victory over Jerry Kidney of Overland Park Golf Course in the semifinal round placed him in the final match against Mooney.

Don Baughman (pictured with CGA Governor Les Fowler on right) of Tiara Rado Golf Course defeated Dick Johnson of Aurora Hills Golf Course 2 and 1 to claim the title in the Super Senior Division.
