Moon Falls in Northeast Amateur Playoff
June 27, 2004
UCLA senior Roy Moon fell to Anthony Kim on the fifth playoff hole at the Northeast Amateur hosted by Wanamoisset Country Club in Rumford, RI.
Both players finished at three-under par 273 on Sunday and began their playoff at the first hole, which they both parred.
At No.2, a 474-yard par 4, both players bogeyed, Moon two-putting from 35 feet.
At the par 3, 138-yard third hole, Moon sank a clutch 8-foot par putt to stay in the playoff.
At the fourth, a 445-yard par 4, Moon got up and down from green-side rough and sank a six-footer for par to move on.
On the fifth extra playoff hole, No.2, Moon was 60 feet short on his approach shot and Kim flew his second shot past the pin into the green-side rough. Moon three-putted and Kim got up and down for the victory.
'I really struggled at the start, but I felt good at the way I hung in there and was able to get the job done down the stretch (in regulation),' said Moon, who posted a three-over par 72 in the final round. 'Overall, I'm happy with the way I played this week and especially with the way I was putting. I came here to win and gave myself a chance to do that. I think I'll take a lot with me out of this week.'
