Golf: Atomic City Invitational postponed due to fire

By The Staff

The bottom two seeds in this year’s Atomic City Invitational men’s championship flight ended up facing off in Monday’s final round.
Tim Johnson, the No. 7 seed in the men’s flight, held off eighth-seeded Warren Finch in the final round of the 2011 ACI. Johnson picked up his second career ACI victory, albeit his first since the late 1980s.
This year’s ACI was held around the Labor Day weekend instead of its usual late June-early July schedule. The tournament was postponed due to the effects of the Las Conchas Fire which started in late June.
The only year since 1950 the ACI has been canceled was in 2000, that because of the Cerro Grande Fire.
Brandon Rich, who won Friday’s qualifying round at the ACI, finished third, defeating two-time champ Cale Jones.
Last year’s champion, Parker Ashton didn’t play this year. Ashton put together an impressive run in 2010, defeating several top local players decisively.
In the women’s championship, Anna Swertfeger defeated Sarah Christensen for the title to claim her first ACI championship. Lynne Taylor was third, topping Mary Alei in their contest.
In the senior men’s top flight, Kurt Anast defeated Ted Ball to earn this year’s title.
