OCIAA golf: Hommel wins 2nd straight title

Jake Hommel just wanted to put his chip shot as close to the 18th hole as possible.

Hommel would have been happy to take a birdie on his final hole of the Orange County Interscholastic Athletic Association championship.

The Kingston sophomore did one better. Hommel’s 20-feet chip hit the flag and dropped in for eagle and an exclamation point on his second straight OCIAA title.

Hommel, the only golfer to break 80 on a blustery day, finished six strokes ahead of his teammate Scott Kleeschulte, who shot an 80.

The top 29 golfers advanced to the first round of the Section 9 championship Monday at Powelton Club in Newburgh.
