WALLA WALLA -- Drew Reinland got it done here Sunday at Veternas Memorial Golf Course in final-round action of the All-City Golf Championship.

Reinland did not get many favorable rolls in his putting game, but he carved out a 2-under-par 70 to hold off a charge from defending champion Rob Broadhead by one stroke.

Reinland finished at 138, six under, for the two-day tournament and claimed the 2009 title.

"I hit my irons and my wedges pretty good," Reinland said.� "I didn't hit the driver or putt that well, but it was good enough."

Broadhead, after an even-par 72 on Saturday, entered Sunday's round down four strokes.� Broadhead went out in two under with a 34, including an eagle on the par-5 eighth, to narrow Reinland's lead to three shots after the front nine.

Broadhead birdied 11, 14, and 16 on the back side to shoot a 67, 139 for the two rounds, and come up one stroke short.

"I played really well today," Broadhead said.� "I made a lot of putts."

Reinland birdied 11 and 13 to jump his lead back to four after 13.

Reinland had his putt for par on the par-5 14th rim out, while Broadhead, playing in the group ahead of Reinland's, birdied 14.

Reinland's second shot on 15 came up short of the green, but he hit a chip shot to within three feet to get up and down and save par and preserve a two-shot lead with three to play.

"I was happy to save par there (on 15)," Reinland said.� "That was good, especially with Rob birding three (on the back nine)."

With a birdie on 16, Broadhead cut the lead to one.� Reinland went par, par, and Broadhead went to the 18th needing a birdie to tie but had to settle for par.

"On 18, I had a four-footer to tie it," Broadhead said.� "I didn't know it was to tie. Oh, well, I played a great round of golf."

Reinland smashed his drive on 18 right down the middle and reached the green in two.� Again his birdie putt would not drop, but Reinland tapped in for his par to clinch his first City title.

"I hit my line most of the time, but my speed was off all day," Reinland said of his near-miss putts.� "I just needed to be that much softer or that much harder, (but) I knew (going to 18) that I had to get a par."

Reinland adds his City title to the family trophy case. Older brother Max claimed the 2004 and 2006 titles.

"Yes, (it keeps it in the family)," Drew Reinland said.� "(And) yeah, I'll be back to defend the title."

In addition to Reinland and Broadhead, five other players in the Championship Flight had sub-par rounds Sunday.

Gregg Corn fired a 69. Greg Prins shot 70 and Jeff Neher turned in a 71. Prins and Neher finished in a tie for third with a two-day total of 143.
