Broadhead wins fourth Walla Walla All-City Golf Championship

Rob Broadhead records a 3-under-par 69 in the Walla Walla All-City Championships final round at Veterans Memorial for his fourth trophy.


WALLA WALLA - Rob Broadhead made a seamless transition from the Walla Walla Country Club to Veterans Memorial Golf Course Sunday during the second and final day of the 61st annual Walla Walla All-City Championships golf tournament.

Broadhead, a three-time champion, notched his second consecutive 3-under-par 69 during a warm, somewhat windy day to collect All-City title No. 4 with a 36-hole score of 138. Broadhead also won back-to-back tournament championships in 2007 and 2008 and again last year, when he knocked in a 50-yard eagle on the first hole of a sudden death playoff to beat Jeff Neher.

The former Wa-Hi Blue Devil finished three shots in front of another former Wa-Hi player, Greg Prins, Sunday at Memorial. Prins was the only other player in the field to post a pair of sub-par rounds, shooting 2-under 70 at Vets Sunday after opening the tournament Saturday with a 1-under-par 71 at the country club that left him two shots off the pace.

Prins' 3-under 141 for 36 holes was six shots better than third-place Sean Taylor, who carded 76-71-147.

Tyler Ketelsen matched par-72 Sunday and moved up to share fourth place with Devin Kaylor, the 2002 All-City champion. Kaylor did just the opposite, scoring 77 Sunday at Memorial after an opening-round par-72 at the club.

Four players, including two-time champion Gregg Corn, tied for fifth place at 151. Barry Wofford, Bill Herron and Mason Palmer were the others.

Corn won his All-City championships in 1999 and 2005.

Vince Jiminez had the best net score among those players entered in the championship flight, totaling 135 to finish four strokes ahead of Bill Boggs. But the overall net championship went to Mike Lemm, who posted net scores of 64 and 66 for a 130 total to win the first net flight by 10 shots over Chuck Streamer.

The first flight gross title went to Joan Schille, who shot rounds of 81 at the country club and 78 at Memorial for a 159 score. She finished one shot in front of Bart Harvey and John Molitor, who shared second place.

Schille's showing also gave her the women's overall All-City title. With so few entered in the tournament, there wasn't a separate flight for women this year.

The second flight gross crown went to Richard Cole with a 171 total that was good for a three-shot victory over Gary Owsley. Onie Bloomberg won the second flight net title with a 140 total, one stroke better than Bill Brownfield and Ron Miller, who shared second place.

Jiminez was awarded the senior gross championship with a score of 145.
