PEBBLE BEACH – NCGA Associate Club Local Qualifying took place at seven different Northern California courses on Thursday with 42 teams advancing to Sectional Qualifying in late July. In a format which takes the two low net scores from a four-man team plenty of well-under par scores could be found.
