CITY CHAMPIONSHIPS: UHV golfer steps up to win top city prize

Steve Jones poses with Claud Jacobs while holding the Claud Jacobs cup after winning the men's championship flight of the Victoria City Golf Championship on Monday.

Steve Jones double and triple checks every score on his card before he turns it in. The UHV golfer has made that mistake before with serious consequences.

"I just didn't read my scorecard correctly at the conference tournament," Jones said of his play at Association of Independent Institutions tournament in Victoria in late April. "I got DQed after I figured out that I shot a 69 instead of a 70."

Jones was able to put together three strong rounds at the city's three golf courses, and edged out UHV teammate Vance Edwards by four strokes to win the 2013 Victoria City Golf Championship on Monday.

It was a round Victoria Country Club assistant pro Joe Mitchell Jr. described as a "blow up day" for almost everyone, as a nasty northbound wind strafed the course for much of the day.

While other players' scores ballooned, Jones was able to keep his down by making birdies on each of Colony Creek's par-5 holes.

He posted a 74 for the round, tied for the day's best with third-place finisher Mark Bazan.

"It's good redemption after last time, kind of falling out, this time coming out and bouncing back and getting up on top," Jones said. "I just tried to stay patient. The par 5s were accessible today."

He beat out teammate Edwards, who is coming off of a stellar month. The soon-to-be junior took top individual honors at the AII tournament here at the endof April, then in 20th place at the NAIA national tournament in Salem, Ore., in mid-May.

Edwards entered Monday with the lead after posting rounds of 69 and 71 the first two days, but his teammate Jones was never far behind, only two strokes behind after two rounds.

The difference ended up being Monday's round.

"We've played together plenty of times," Jones said. "It's good competition; we like to battle back and forth a little."
