Zimmerman leads by one in Pro Tour Hawai'i golf

Advertiser Staff

Two bad tee shots resulted in two bogeys, but Alan Zimmerman countered with two birdies en route to an even-par 72 yesterday to maintain a one-stroke lead heading into the final round of Pro Tour Hawaii’s third $100,000 tournament at the Big Island Country Club in Kailua-Kona.

Zimmerman, of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., has a 54-hole total of 11-under 205.

"I made two mistakes today, and they made all the difference," said Zimmerman, 26. "In the final round, I want fairways, greens, and patience."

Jim Johnson, of Boone, N.C., and Casey Brown, of Fort Smith, Ark., fired 5-under 67s and were at 206 and 207, respectively. Honolulu’s Gregory Meyer shot a 70 and was at 208.

Chris Zambri, of Camarillo, Calif., who won last week’s event at Waikoloa Village, is six shots behind at 70-211. Hilo’s Kevin Hayashi, who won the first event at Waimea Country Club, fired a 67 and is at 213.

Following today’s final round, Pro Tour Hawaii moves to Oahu for the next two tournaments. There are 10 events on the circuit, each with a $100,000 purse.


BYUH pair advance: Brigham Young-Hawaii Petra Gaspar and Tagifano So’onalole won two matches yesterday to advance to the semifinals of the Rolex National Intercollegiate Indoor Tennis Championships at Farmer’s Branch, Texas.

Gaspar and So’onalole, No. 1 in the national rankings for NCAA Division II, will play Stanford’s Laura Granville and Gabriela Lastra in today’s doubles semifinals.
