    Caddie-less Tim Hogarth is medalist at CC of Detroit; several Michigan men make match play


    He’s his own caddie, and his caddie is doing a bang-up job.

    Tim Hogarth shot a 7-under 65 and finished 10 under through 36 holes to earn medalist honors in the U.S. Senior Amateur at Country Club of Detroit in Grosse Pointe Farms.

    Hogarth, of Northridge, California, set a pair of records for the championship. His 65 was the lowest score in U.S. Senior Amateur stroke-play history, and his 134 two-round total matched the best 36-hole showing. And he’s done it all while carrying his own clubs this week, in some pretty intense heat, no less. He now will have the top seed entering match play, which begins Monday.

    “You know that’s exciting,” Hogarth said afterward, speaking of the records. “Any time you do something that is meaningful in history, I’m proud of that.”

    This is the third time Hogarth has earned medalist honors in a United States Golf Association championship. He won the 1996 U.S. Amateur Public Links championship.

    This week marks his 37th USGA appearance, and first U.S. Senior Amateur. He reached the age requirement, 55, in June.
