Joe Moulton of Roseville’s Morgan Creek Golf and Country Club advanced to the finals of the 2008 Northern California PGA Assistant Apprentice Match Play Championship with two wins on Tuesday. Moulton defeated Andre Gust of Lake Tahoe four and two in Monday’s first round, which was played at Quails Lodge Resort in Carmel. That opening round pared the field of 31 down to 16 golfers for Monday’s second round at Del Monte Golf Club in Monterey. In that second round, Moulton dominated Vacaville-based golfer Brandon Hill six and five to advance to the Tuesday morning quarterfinals. Moulton’s outstanding play continued with two more wins on Tuesday to advance to Wednesday’s final. He took his quarterfinal match three and two over Steve Watanabe from The Bridges Golf Club in San Ramon, before besting Ryan Farb of Poppy Hills Golf Club in Pebble Beach four and two. Moulton will face Eric Goettsch of Tehama Golf Course in Carmel in the 18-hole final played Wednesday at Spyglass Hill in Pebble Beach.
