First-day lead carries Rannow to overall title

Bob Rannow of the Sandpines Golf Resort in Florence built a big enough first-day lead to capture the overall title of the Oregon Chapter PGA 2002 Spring Tour Invitational Tuesday at the Rogue Valley Country Club.

Rannow combined a low opening-day 8-under par score of 64 to go with a 73 for a 137 winning total. Jeff Marsh and Jeff Mashos, who tied for the second-day title with a 68, finished in a four-way tie for second overall at 142 with Doug Hixson and Ross Jesswein Jr. of Grants Pass.

Brad Mombert carded the low amateur score of 67 Tuesday, while Kevin Klabunde of the Rogue Valley Country Club was second at 72. Two other Rogue Valley Country Club golfers - Marshall Holman and Dave Kaplan - tied with three other competitors for third at 74.

Toshio Miyake of the Rogue Valley Country Club was the low net amateur with a 63. Larry Collins of Rogue Valley and Tim Croft of Quail Point Golf Club tied for second at 66.

Stewart Meadows Golf Club won the team event with a 189. Members of the Stewart Meadows team are Dan Coughlin, Tom Hamlin, John Kruesi, Jim Plummer and Dale Harkin.
