  • Norman storms back to win title

    Curt Norman posted the best score of the 2011 City Championship tournament Sunday to claim his second consecutive title.
    Norman, who was a shot behind day one leader Ted Ball heading into Sunday’s second round, posted a 4-under 68 to run away with the 2011 title. Norman finished with a two-day total of 143, easily outdistancing Ball.
    Ball, who had the low round of 74 on a generally high-scoring round Saturday, finished Sunday’s round with a 6-over 78 on his attempt to win his first ever City title. His two-day total of 152, however, was still good enough for second place.

  • Colby wins playoff to claim senior men's crown

    John Stam had the second-low round of the entire tournament Sunday to get himself back in contention in the senior men’s City Championship, but Brian Colby held on to take the 2011 title.

    Following Saturday’s first day of the tournament, Colby was down one stroke to Griffith, but pulled even with Griffith Sunday with his round of 76. Griffith finished with a 77 Sunday.

  • Martinson wins third straight City tournament

    Tami Martinson took a solid lead after the opening round of the City Championship tournament and hung on through the second round to win her third straight title.
    Martinson, who is on an exceptional run at the City tournament, shot a total of 165 this weekend, holding off a charge Sunday from Ev Griggs.
    Griggs, the most decorated amateur golfer in Los Alamos County history and an 18-time winner of the City tournament, had a solid round of 82 Sunday to get within striking distance, but Martinson’s 84 gave her a three-stroke victory.
    In the past three City tournaments, Martinson has won with solid numbers.
    Martinson earned a five-shot win in 2010 and picked up a whopping 14-shot victory 2009, in which she broke 80 both days.

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A Santa Fe man has been arrested on suspicion of voyeurism after police say he was taking up-skirt photos of several unsuspecting women and a child with his cell phone at area department stores.
