Cole Ogden Shoots 61; Wins Dixie Red Hills Am by Seven Shots
Cole Ogden, of the BYU golf team, shot a second round 61 and won the Dixie Red Hills championship by seven shots over runnerups Greg Hunt and Bill Probst this past weekend. Ogden shot 66 the first round and got hot with the putter in the second round for a two day total of 127.
While Ogden ran away with the Dixie Red Hills title his BYU teammates were winning the Desert Shootout Classic. He didn’t make the traveling team for that tournament and his winning performance at Dixie Red Hills goes to show how deep the Cougar roster is this year. Another non-traveling Cougar, Mike Jurca, finished in a tie for fourth.
Zac Blair has been the dominate player in the Dixie Red Hills Amateur in recent years, having shot a 60 several times. Par at the course is 68 and the course record stands at 57 set by Jay Don Blake back in his heyday.
“Any time anyone shoots a 61 it’s a great score anywhere,” said Dixie head pro Allen Orchard. “Cole played great.”
