Former Richardson Invitational champion Sean Hartman
(Indian Hills Country Club) beat Stephen Rose (Fresh Meadow CC), 6 and 5, to
win the Long Island Amateur Championship on Friday at the Huntington Crescent
Club. Rose, the 1999 L.I. Amateur champion, led Hartman 1-up after the first 18
holes of the 36-hole match. But Hartman, who earned medalist honors in the
qualifying round with a 72, won four of the next five holes to take control.
North Hempstead Country Club's Hunter Semels, the defending champion, fell to
Bethpage's Casey Alexander, 2 and 1, in the first round.
Also, Bob and Tyler Randol took advantage of their home course in capturing
the LIGA's Father/Son Championship on Tuesday at Rockaway Hunting Club. Bob, a
former club champion, and Tyler, a member of the University of Richmond golf
team, combined to shoot a 6-under-par 64, six shots better than Gerald and
Derren Garber, of Lake Success Golf Course.
