Sunnyvale’s Jim Knoll added to a remarkable 2014 season with a two-shot win at the California State Fair Senior Championship. Knoll shot 68-69 at Mather Golf Course over Labor Day weekend, beating out second-place finishers Scott Anderson and Greg O’Malley.
Knoll had already won two big California events entering the State Fair, including the Northern California Senior Championship in April and the Sacramento City Senior Championship in July.
Defending champion David Baskins finished in a tie for fifth place at 142. He was tied with Knoll at 68 after the first round but a 74 in the final round dropped him out of contention.
Lodi’s Chuck Richesin won his first Super Senior title, firing 67-73 for a two- stroke victory over San Jose’s Jim Welsh.
