Brian Hughes to play for Oregon Amateur title

WOODBURN, Ore. — Brian Hughes continued to tear up the field at the 94th Oregon Amateur Championship and with a pair of victories Friday. The Centralia native finds himself in the championship this morning.

Hughes was to tee off against 2002 Junior Champion Ryan Gilmour at 7 a.m. in the title match.

Hughes, who was the medalist in the 36-hole opening round, had to come from behind in both of his matches Friday.

He trailed Jay Poletiek by one after four holes and the match was tied after eight, but Hughes then won five of the next six holes to post a 5 and 4 victory in the quarterfinals.

The semifinal was similar as Hughes fell behind Sean Deacon on the second hole, tied it on the third and never trailed after the fourth in the 4 and 3 victory.

Hughes has yet to play beyond 15 holes in his four match-play wins.
