Tim Hogarth of Northridge secured a fourth straight victory in the Pasadena City Golf Championship at the Brookside Golf Club in Pasadena over the weekend, according to organizers.
The four-win streak ties the record of Bruce McCormick, who accomplished the same feat between 1948 and 1951, according to AmateurGolf.com, which co-hosted the tournament along with the Rose Bowl Operating Co., Brookside Men’s Golf Club, American Golf Corp., and First Tee Greater Pasadena.
The victory was Hogarth’s eighth in the tournament overall.
While he is no stranger to Brookside, Hogarth said the course seemed particularly tricky over the weekend.
“I’ve never seen Brookside play this firm and fast,” Hogarth told AmateurGolf.com. “It was a challenge that I haven’t seen in the 20 years that I’ve been playing the Pasadena City.”
More than 380 golfers took part in the tournament’s 85th incarnation, according to the Rose Bowl.
Fundraising and partial proceeds from the event benefited the First Tee-Greater Pasadena youth golf program, organizers added.
“The Pasadena City Golf Championship is a historic championship that dates back to 1929 and has long been one of Southern California’s most prestigious tournaments,” according to the Rose Bowl statement. “Once one of the largest golf championships in the country, it has come back as a force to be reckoned with, selling out and seeing an increased interest during the pandemic by golfers who found comfort in the game.”
