Godi wins junior golf tour event

Foothill golfer tops division at Pumpkin Ridge outside Portland

Pleasanton teen Chase Godi used three birdies to propel him to a four-stroke victory in his age group in the Major Championship at Pumpkin Ridge hosted by the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour in Oregon.

The Foothill junior shot 19-over-par to defeat five other competitors in the boys 16-18 division during the two-day tournament played April 2-3 on the Ghost Creek course at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club outside Portland, Ore.

Godi held the lead after posting an 80 in the opening round and then closed the deal with a final-round 79 to finish four shots ahead of runner-up Dom Marrese of Bellevue, Wash.

With the first-place finish, Godi clinched berths in the tour's 2016 Druh Belts Mid Season Invitational in Georgia in June and the Tour Championship in Florida in July.

Godi wasn't the only Tri-Valley golfer to notch a win in Oregon. San Ramon resident Alexis Browne shot 38-over-par en route to earning the victory in the girls 14-18 division.
