“I just happened to make a couple of good shots,” said Timpson, who won the round by six strokes over Burbank’s Jin Park and South Torrance’s Dan Kim and became the second Falcon to win the flight in as many seasons. “I had a couple of putts that went in and a couple of chip shots that landed close to the hole.
“You need to know when to position yourself and I put my tee shots in or near the middle of the fairway. Then you have an easier time.”
Timpson birdied the eighth through 11th holes.
The area teams fared well in some parts of the 18-team tournament. Thirteen schools participated in the shotgun event.
Park took second in a card off after he parred the 18th hole and Kim bogeyed.
“Jin had a great day and round,” Burbank assistant Coach Greg Grimshaw said. “He looked real focused the whole time out there.
“He’s got that smooth swing and he makes things look easy.”
Burroughs got a quality performance from Chris Kesicbasiam, who fired a 77 in the A Flight competition.
Derek Patao of La Cañada won the B Flight competition. Patao, a reigning All-Area member, carded a 74 to beat out Thousand Oaks’ Zack DeBruno by three strokes.
“I was able to putt very well and I didn’t strike the ball all that well,” Patao said. “I pushed a lot of my shots, but my short game was great.”
South Torrance shot a 299 to win the event for the second season in a row. Thousand Oaks was second (306) followed by Crescenta Valley (312). Burroughs (329) and Burbank (333) finished fifth and seventh, respectively, and Glendale was 16th (383).
The Falcons, who have won the tournament four times since 2000, saw Nick Blackburn place second in the C Flight competition with an 85. Andrew Andrus of South Torrance won it with an 82 and Jason Lee of Crescenta Valley had an 86 for third.
The Nitros got a 91 from Kevin Aguirre in the C Flight round.
Burroughs Coach Greg Everhart said Kesicbasiam and Josh Bailey, who shot an 80 in B Flight action, fared well for the Indians.
“I’m happy with how they played,” Everhart said.
