2015 State Fair Masters
|13th State Fair Masters Championship at Bing Maloney|
|After blowing the field away winning by 10 strokes last year with a tournament record 20 under par, Ryan Sloane successfully defended his title this time in a nail biter, shooting the low round of the day with a 4 under 68, good enough for a one shot victory over Chris Johnson of Rancho Cordova and Jay Weiss of San Jose.
Ryan cleaned up with his final round 68, winning a $500 Morton Golf gift certificate for the championship, a $50 gift certificate for the low final round score and free entry into next year’s Masters tournament. Chris Johnson’s 15 foot snaking birdie putt on 18 after a great approach shot from under the left trees won him an extra $100.
Jeff Hoffman of Folsom, three time Masters champion, made a nice run, finished in fourth place.
