May 13-14, 2013
MONTEREY – Don Boline, Frank Carr, John Hernandez and Tim Robertson of Fresno Airways GC went wire to wire to win the NCGA South Valley Zone Championship at Del Monte GC Tuesday. The quartet of golfers followed their first round score of 122 at Quail Lodge GC, with a 130 at Del Monte GC to total 252, 34-under par in a format which takes the two best net scores per hole of a four-man team. Fresno Airways GC had plenty of red on its scorecard, scoring a net double eagle, two net eagles and eight net birdies to go along with only one net bogey.
Taking second place was Lemoore GC at 256, 30-under par, who followed their first round of 127 with a 129. The Lemoore GC team featuring Hector Cervantes, Manuel Cervantes, Genaro Martinez and Kelly Toomey had to beat Sherwood Forest GC in a sudden-death playoff to earn the second championship qualifying spot as both teams finished at the 30-under par mark. Starting the day alone in third place, the four-man team was bolstered by a net triple eagle on the 18th along with four net eagles and four net birdies, while only making one net bogey. Missing the playoff for second place by a single stroke were three teams finishing at 257, 29-under par: Belmont CC, Copper River CC and Visalia CC.
With their performances Fresno Airways GC and Lemoore GC qualify to play in the 47th Annual NCGA Zone Championship at Spyglass Hill GC and Del Monte GC, August 26-27.
