Stadler Wins 102nd CGA Match Play

July 8-12, 2002, Country Club at Castle Pines


7/12/2002


Kevin Stadler of Bear Creek Golf Club was crowned the 102nd CGA State Amateur Match Play champion after defeating University of Denver player Anthony Giarratano on his home course 3 and 2 in a remarkable 36-hole final match at the prestigious Country Club at Castle Pines. For Stadler, the son of PGA Tour pro Craig Stadler, this is his second CGA Match Play title, as he won this state championship in 1999 in Fort Collins. Afterward he was quick to congratulate the younger Giarratano on a strong performance, and was as relieved as he was happy that the long road to becoming a state champion had concluded. Stadler, who earned PAC 10 player of the year honors and was named second team all-American at the University of Southern California, stated that this was his likely last season as an amateur.

The match itself was extremely well played. Stadler took a 1 up lead on the first hole, and finished the first 18 holes strongly enough to take a 4 up lead into the second 18. Stadler built his lead to 5 up on the 23rd hole, only to have Giarratano birdie the next hole to get it back to 4 up. Stadler birdied the 27th hole to go 5 up again, but Giarratano won the 30th to pull within 4. Stadler was dormie (up as many holes as are remaining) at 4 up on the 32nd hole needing only to halve any hole the rest of the way to win the match. Giarratano fought back with a 15-foot birdie to cut Stadler's lead to 3 up. On the 33rd hole, Giarratano lipped out a 4-foot birdie putt with Stadler already in with par halving the hole and giving Stadler the 3 and 2 victory.
