July 28, 2007–The 2007 Cleveland Golf Pro-Scratch event at Angel Park Golf Club, a two-day event held on July 22 and 23, was won by Las Vegas pro Craig Adams and amateur Nick Polonia. They edged the team of Curtis Deal and James Logeman by birdieing the third playoff hole. Adams collected $2300 for the victory and Polonia earned $750 in value from the Angel Park Golf Club pro shop. Angel Park Golf Club is the home of two Arnold Palmer-designed golf courses, a lighted par 3 golf course, an all grass putting course, and a large, lighted practice facility.
At the end of regulation play (two rounds of one best ball of two), both teams carded a 13-under-par 129 (Adams/Polonia shot 63, 66 and Deal/Logeman shot 66, 63). The championship was almost decided on the first playoff hole (No. 18) when Adams nearly holed his second shot from 125 yards. His efforts were redeemed; as he went on to sink a seven-foot birdie putt on the third playoff hole (No. 18) to win the championship.

We played very well on the first day especially on our last four holes where we made Eagle, Par, Birdie, Eagle on holes 10, 11, 12 and 13,” said Polonia. “Different story on the second day, we were just grinding. The only highlights were Craig’s birdies on two of the longer par 3s. That carried us across the finish line."
"This was another exciting event that is becoming a Las Vegas favorite among competitive golfers," said Kris Strauss, a competitor and director of marketing for OB Sports Golf Management. "We appreciate all of the support from the sponsors: Cleveland Golf, TI (Treasure Island), Club Car and Southern Wine and Spirits."
