Patton-Hogan set SB Classic record with a 57

Former SBCC golf standouts Brett Patton and Jonny Hogan were dropping birdies on the Santa Babara Golf Club course Saturday like cracking cascarones on the heads of friends during Fiesta weekend.

Patton and Hogan shot an eye-popping 13-under par 57 to take the first-day lead at the 54th annual Santa Barbara Golf Classic two-man best ball tournament on Saturday. The score is the lowest first-day round in Classic history. In 1976, Fred Shoemaker and Jim Hopper shot a 57 in the second round en route to the tournament’s all-time 36-hole record of 19-under 121. Mitchell Martin and Reilly McMahon also shot 121 in 2013.


Martin and McMahon are in second place after shooting a 59 on Saturday. Brandon Gama and John Giles are in third place at 60.

Patton was SBCC’s top golfer this past season. He won the Western State Conference tournament and finish fifth in the state.

In the San Miguel Flight, the teams of Dave Pistotnik-Brian Sullivan and Phil Hurlbut-David Hurlbut are tied for the lead in the San Miguel Flight at 61. Rob Moore-David Sams lead the Santa Rosa Flight with a 59. In the Ancapa Flight, Andy Holland-Jon McConnel lead with a 59.

The tournament winds up today.
