Lani Elston runner-up at OGA Mid-Amateur
Lani Marie Elston of Milwaukie earned runner-up honors in the womens division of the Oregon Golf Association Oregon Mid-Amateur Championship, finishing just one stroke back of Brie Stone of Veneta.
Elston shot rounds of 75 and 75, for a six-over-par 150 for the par 36 Emerald Valley Golf Club Course.
But for a triple bogey seven on the par four 14th hole, Elston likely would have dethroned Stone, who claimed her fifth straight title for the tournament, which was held at Emerald Valley the weekend of August 23-24.
Former University of Portland golfer Joel Johnson won the mens division of the tournament, with rounds of 73 and 70, for a one-over-par 143. Jack Schneider of Oregon City shot 148 (76 and 72) to finish ninth in the 67-golfer mens field.
