Ryan Kelley was the only player to finish under par at the 2010 Industry Hills City Championship (COURTESY: Industry Hills Golf Club at Pacific Palms Resort).

Lakewood’s Ryan Kelley won the championship flight in the Industry Hills City Championship last weekend at Industry Hills Golf Club at Pacific Palms Resort.

Playing two rounds on the Eisenhower course and one on the Zaharias layout, Kelley shot rounds of 72-70-72 for a 1-under-par total to win by three shots over Raymond Ho of Cerritos (2-over).

“This means a lot,” Kelley, a graduate of Riverside’s California Baptist University, told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. “I had been playing well the past couple months and have gotten into a little groove. Everything just came together to win it.”

Ho entered Sunday’s final round of the 54-hole event with the lead following a 4-under-par 67 Saturday on the Zaharious course — a competitive record. However, he closed with a 3-over 75 on Eisenhower that included a pair of double bogeys.

Kevin L. Keller, who had the opening-round lead thanks to a 70 at Eisenhower, closed with rounds of 74-74 to finish alone in third at 3-over par. Hacienda Heights resident Jason Choo was fourth at 4-over.

Woodland Hills resident Aaron West, who won the Ventura City Championship earlier this summer, shared fourth place with Choo. Accomplished amateur Tim Hogarth of Northridge ended in sixth place at 5-over par.

Defending champion Bobby Arranaga registered rounds of 76-75-79 to finish in 18th place.

The championship flight was for players with indexes of 2.9 or lower. Here are winners and top finishers from other flights, with handicap ranges included:
