2015 Monterey Hickory Classic Winners

Gary Yoro (gross) - Kris Surano (Champion)


Friday Sept 11th, 2015 - Monterey,

A record breaking heatwave for the Monterey Peninsula didn't phase Diablo CC's Kris Surano en route to shooting a 9 under par 63 and running away with the championship. The round included a slew of birdies and a chip-in eagle 3 on the par5 13th.



In the gross division, the title came down to the final holes with first time hickory player Gary Yoro from Spring Hills GC and Orion Galioni of Pacific Grove eventually tied at 78. Gary's final 10 holes was a roller-coaster of a scorecard getting things kicked off with an eagle 3 on the par5 9th followed up with 2 more birdies on the way home. Orion played a steady round with 13 pars and the unfortunate out-of-bounds on the 13th. Both names will be added to our perpetual trophy. (*UPDATE - the database now can break ties beyond back-nine score. The order is: Last 9, Last 6, Last 3, and then backwards starting from 18. Orion had a better last 6 holes).



A cardoff was also needed to determine our runner-up with 3 players tied at 2 under par 70. Mike Kosich's back nine was slightly better than Dana Niehaus and Orion Galioni.



Thanks to Stacy and Orion's diligence administrating our skins game. We had 2 gross eagles, 4 net eagles, a slew of birdies, and even a gross par that won a skin.
