Brandon Hargett Edges Purser for Art City Am Title
This year’s Art City Amateur came down to a head-to-head putting contest on the 18th green between Springville native Brandon Hargett and BYU’s Devon Purser. Tied going onto the par five final hole they both reached the green in two.
Hargett was farther from the hole and putted first, stopping about three feet short. Purser had a 15-foot uphill eagle putt that went past the hole and left him with about a two and a half footer. Hargett made his birdie putt and Purser missed the downhiller which gave Hargett the title. He also missed the next putt that dropped him into a tie for second with Mason Casper, the defending champion.
Hargett finished 67-66 for an 11-under, 133 on the par-71 layout. Purser finished second at 135 followed by Clark Rustand, Mike Jurca and Tommy Forsman who finished three shots back at 136.
Hargett’s victory made it two years in a row that a Springville resident has won the title. Last year Mason Casper won the title with a record breaking score of 64-64-128. The only other Springville resident to win the title was Ron Hitchcock back in 1989.
The official tournament format was gross only in Championship Flight and net only in the other flights. For this news report we are reporting the gross scores for the Second Flight although the prizes were all awarded based on net scores. The net scores are also listed.
