Moody Captures Utah PGA Match Play Title Third Consecutive Year

Chris Moody made history Wednesday at HAFB by becoming the first pro to win the Utah Section Match Play Championship three years in a row. He defeated Tracy Zobell in the championship match, 2-up, for his 15th straight match play victory going back three years.

During the tournament he was forced to play the 18th hole only once, in the semifinals against Todd Tanner. His other victories were over Charles Taylor and Brad Richards by 4 and 3 margins, and a 5 and 4 win over Stacy Jones.

Zobell beat Pete Stone in the semifinals, 4 and 3, after ousting Milo Lines, Zach Johnson, and Troy Watkins.

Moody won three of the first five holes over Zobell and never trailed in the match. Zobell won the 6th and 14th holes, each time closing the match to a two-hole spread, but he could never get closer than that.
