104th Annual California Amateur Championship

Players Handbook Pairings Results Match Play Bracket   June 27, 2015 Moments after clinching the title, Shotaro Ban saw his mom and the two happily exchanged hugs. After a long and emotional week, the 21-year-old was finally a champion. Ban, a senior at Cal, defeated 17-year-old Roseville resident Joshua Sedeno, 5 and 4, on a breezy Saturday at Lake Merced Golf Club to win the 104th California Amateur Championship. With the victory, he’ll join the likes of Johnny Miller, Mark O’Meara and Ken Venturi as players who have their names etched on the prestigious Edward B. Tufts Trophy. “It’s very special to have my name on that,” said Ban, who lives in San Jose. “There are so many names on that trophy that have gone on to do great things. Hopefully this is a stepping stone for me and I can build off of it and do bigger things in the future.” Ban’s victory also marked the first for a Bear in the championship. Charlie Wi won the title in 1990, but that was before he transferred to Cal from University Nevada-Reno. Bears who never even reached the final include Max Homa, James Hahn and 2012 U.S. Amateur runner-up Michael Weaver. “It’s awesome. Hopefully I pave the way for other players in the program,” said Ban, who was the No.25 seed. “I want to try and be a role model for future Bears.” Having taken a 3-up lead in the morning portion of the 36-hole finale, Ban slipped early in the afternoon round when he missed a 4-foot par putt on the 2nd hole to drop his lead to 2-up. Through the next five holes, the No.26 seeded Sedeno, who was looking to become one of the event’s youngest winners (Mac Hunter won at age 16 in 1972), had chances to further cut into Ban’s lead but continually was  denied. On the 22nd hole (No.4), the Del Oro High senior missed a 4-foot putt for a win, while on No.23 his par putt stopped an inch short of the cup, giving Ban a win. A hole later on No.24, Sedeno, who’s already committed to Southern Methodist University in 2016, three-putted for a halve. On the 25th, he was stuck with an awful lie in the rough off the left side of the green. Hitting nearly from his knees, his third shot skipped through the green for bogey, giving Ban a 4-up lead. “I had a huge chance in that stretch to get the match back to all-square, and it went the other way,” said Sedeno, who won this year’s Memorial Championship at Ancil Hoffman GC. “I should’ve stayed calm and kept in...
