Telles Wins Men’s Amateur Public Links Title
Corvallis, Oregon (August 30, 2009) – Isaiah Telles of Tualatin, Ore. used an even par 72 to capture the title at the 2009 PNGA Men’s Amateur Public Links Championship held at Trysting Tree Golf Club in Corvallis, Ore.
After a difficult front nine that saw Telles shoot a 2-over par 38 and fall back into a tie for the lead, he regained his composure on the back nine with a 2-under par 34. The turning point in the round came at the par-5 14th hole in which Telles made an eagle three to regain the lead and never gave it back. Telles’ two day total of 6-under par 138 bettered second place finishers Brandon Taylor of Corvallis, Ore. and Jesse Schutte of Eugene, Ore. by two shots. Telles is entering his sophomore year at the University of Oregon where he was a key contributor to last year’s team that advanced to the National Championship.
