Hahn ties course record

James Hahn tied Metro's course record of 63, shooting a 30-33 on Friday, September 19, 2008.

Hahn barely missed a 10-foot birdie putt on 18 that would have bested the course record set by Dong Yi, a fellow Canadian Tour player and Alameda native. Both Hahn and Yi played golf at the University of California Berkeley.

I ran into Hahn right after his round. He downplayed his achievement, saying that merely tying the course record is nothing to brag about. I strongly disagree. Big ups to James.

Hahn has secured his Canadian Tour card for next season, but first he'll go through Q School at San Juan Oaks next month to see if he can make the Nationwide or PGA Tours.
