Baloga shoots 67, wins his second Maryland Amateur Stroke Play title

Three-time champion Wingerd finishes one stroke behind

July 03, 2011|By Baltimore Sun reporter

Chris Baloga of Hillendale Country Club won his second Maryland Amateur Stroke Play championship with a second straight 67 and a 54-hole total of 7-under-par 206 at Mount Pleasant Golf Course.

A 16th-hole birdie was the difference, as the 2009 titlist edged three-time winner Billy Wingerd of Mountain Branch Golf Club, who was in the lead for much of the last round -- shooting a 67 -- and finished at 207.

Vance Welch of University of Maryland GC and Brad Miller of Baltimore CC tied for third at 213.
