CCCAA Men’s Golf State Championship

May 11, 2015 Pairings | Results College of the Canyons ran away with the team title, while Chabot’s Jeremy Sanchez set a record in the Individual championship. Located in Santa Clarita, College of the Canyons shot 13-over 733 to win the Community College of California Athletics Association State title on Monday at par-72 Kings River Golf and Country Club in Kingsburg. The College of the Canyons, which won its second title in three years, defeated runner-up Reedley College by eight strokes. Leading the way for College of the Canyons was Sam Sloman and Eric Kim, who each shot 1-over 145 in the 36-hole event. Other College of the Canyons scores (top five of six) were Matt Murray (146), Braden Lewis (147), Noa Yap (150) and Clay Chatterley (159). While they didn’t win, Reedley made a nice second round push up the leaderboard, climbing from fourth to second place. Reedley, which finished at 741, was led by Ben Hallam (145) and Don Godin (146). Other Reedley scores were Jacob Ruffino (149), Ryder Rochin (153), Kevin Lauterbach (155) and Jeffrey Yamaguchi (161). Third place came down to a card-off between Santa Rosa and Riverside City, who both came in with total scores of 743. In the card-off (better sixth man’s score), Santa Rosa, which was led by Zack Sims’ 143, was awarded third place. In the Individual portion of the championship, it was all Sanchez. Sanchez, who finished third at last year’s NCGA Amateur Stroke Play Championship, posted an 8-under 136 (65-71) to set a new CCCAA State championship low. Sanchez’ score was one shot better than the previous record, set in 1999 by Long Beach City’s Denny Kim, who posted a 7-under 137. In the morning round, Sanchez was flawless, carding seven birdies with zero bogeys. In the afternoon, he’d card four bogeys but also had five birdies. Chad Hambright of Riverside City finished second in the Individual championship at 141 thanks in part to a championship-low 64. In shooting the 64, Hambright had nine birdies and a bogey. Third place in the Individual championship went to Santa Rosa’s Zack Sims at 143 (72-71).    ...

CIF/CGA High School Boys State Championships

June 8, 2011 Poppy Hills GC Individual Results Team Results Course Stats   PEBBLE BEACH – Depth and consistency were the two things that Torrey Pines head coach Chris Drake used to describe his team, and those proved to be two good things to have on Wednesday. The Torrey Pines Team played lights out in the 2011 CIF High School Boys State Championship at Poppy Hills GC, shattering the previous state championship low score at Poppy Hills by nine shots. Torrey Pines’ team score of 6-over 366 was nine better than St. Augustine’s 2005 score of 375. “I have six guys that I got up here that will shoot right around even. They’re not going to go [way] under-par,” said Drake, who further pointed out that none of his players shot lower than even par at the SoCals, but none shot worse than 3-over par. Torrey Pines was lead by Jay Hwang, the soon to be UCLA Bruin, as he fired a 2-under 70. After making the turn at 1-over par Hwang made three birdies on the back nine for the 70, proving why he is the team’s number one player. The other four scores that were counted toward the team total were 73s by Danny Ochoa and Ryan Burgess, a 74 by Michael Kim and a 76 by Bobby Gojuangco. RL Stevenson School was one of the first two schools in and it looked as if the 375 it posted might be enough for the Monterey Peninsula school to steal away a title. The Stevenson school located less than a mile away from Poppy Hills took advantage of the course’s proximity and it showed as all six players shot in the 70s—the only team to do so. “We definitely felt we had a home course advantage,” said standout Stevenson school freshman Seb Crampton, who shot 74. “This course is so narrow and the greens are really undulating; we know these greens well.” Finishing behind Torrey Pines and RL Stevenson in third place was Foothill who shot 21-over 381. Foothill was lead by Nicolo Galletti who shot 3-under 69 tying for medalist honors with Scripps Ranch’s Alexander Schauffele, only to lose to Schauffele in a three-hole sudden-death playoff. Schauffele, the incoming Long Beach State freshman, got off to a rough start bogeying three of his first six holes. However, he holed out from the fairway on the par 4 8th hole for a rare eagle two, which got things going for him the rest of the way out. He would add five more birdies and just one bogey over the final 10 holes to get him into the playoff. “After starting...

2011 NCGA Senior Four-Ball Championship

Poppy Hills GC June 1-3, 2011 Results and Scorecards June 3, 2011 by Spencer Sorensen PEBBLE BEACH – Jim Knoll and Jeff Burda can now add a Senior Four-Ball to their resumes as the duo capped off a third straight day shooting in the 60s at Poppy Hills GC on Friday. The two teamed up in the best ball format to shoot a 5-under 67, giving them a three-day total of 201 (15-under), to go along with a 68 and 66 in the first two rounds. Despite both players being two of the best senior golfers over the past couple of years, the pair had never won this event. This year it was almost a foregone conclusion that the two would likely win the championship as they sit first and second on the NCGA Senior Points List. Asked if it was nice to finally win the Senior Four-Ball, Burda said “yeah it does; it was definitely one of our goals.” Knoll and Burda’s main competition were Mark Miller and Casey Boyns who started the day three shots back. Miller and Boyns played well actually posting a lower score than the champions, but a 6-under 66 wasn’t enough, and the pair ended two shots back in second place at 203 (13-under). Miller and Boyns cut the lead to one shot after six holes looking as if they might make a move, but a bogey on seven and chip-in eagle on the par-5 ninth by Knoll put Miller and Boyns back to a three shot deficit, right where they started the day. The lead remained two or three strokes most of the back nine and coming into the par-5 18th Boyns gave his fellow-competitors a scare as he nearly holed out from the fairway for an improbable double-eagle. With Knoll and Burda safely in for par Boyns missed his eight foot eagle putt and settled for birdie. Overall, both pairs played exceptional as Knoll and Burda had 5 birdies, an eagle and two bogeys, while Miller and Boyns scored seven birdies and one bogey. Finishing in third were 2009 Champions Rob Adolph and Doug Johnson, who posted a three-day total of 208 (8-under). Robert Fulton and Dan Bieber, and Ben Whipple and Sherman Haggerty finished just outside of the top-3 in a tie for fourth at 210 (6-under). Defending champions Ron Johnson and Peter Moren had their best day of the week with a 3-under 69 to finish in a tie for 16th at 214 (2-under). With the victory Knoll and Burda have all but solidified their one-two spot in the NCGA Senior Points List as they earned 400 points (200...
