Golfer from Eagle defends his title in Cottonwood Classic

The Yampa Valley Golf Course concluded its busiest month of the year with a successful run through its biggest tournament of the year. The Cottonwood Classic concluded Sunday, and it ended in similar fashion to 2011: with Keith Humerickhouse shooting the lowest score. Humerickhouse, of Eagle, shot a three-under par 213. He was the only player to shoot under par and beat Joe Rukavina and Jeb Savage, who tied for second with a 227. Humerickhouse won the classic last year as well, and he came out strong in his title defense, shooting a 68 Friday. After a bumpier second round 74, he came back solid on Sunday, carding a 71.
