Romar Wins Title With Extra Work for Birmingham

April 28, 1999

Keith Romar of Birmingham High won the City 6-A League individual golf championship on the first extra hole Tuesday in a playoff over Tommy Mansuwan of El Camino Real Buenaventura Golf Course in Ventura.

Romar and Mansuwan each finished at one-over par 73 to edge Scott Bashin of Birmingham, who shot a 74.

Romar had three birdies and four bogeys to win the league championship for the second consecutive year. He was so excited afterward that he went to a golf course near his home in the Valley to hit a bucket of balls.

Romar and Bashin helped Birmingham win the team title with a score of 396. Granada Hills was second at 402.

Romar's performance stamps him as one of the favorites for the City championship May 14 and 17 at Wilson-Harding Golf Course.
