CARMEL – Woodcreek GC’s Brad Ables and Gary Costello, Keith Erickson and Paul Valdez came from four strokes down in the final round to capture the NCGA East Sacramento Zone Championship at Quail Lodge.
Woodcreek posted a 37-under net 249 in the format that takes the best two of four net scores per hole to win by five shots. The Cordova GC team of Scott Kilgore, Michael Russell, Michael Tardio and Robert Daily and the Ridge GC team of Jason Craig, Craig Philipps, Stan Gamba and Mark Goudy tied for second. After a one-hole playoff, the Ridge GC earned runner-up honors via two natural birdies.
First-round leaders Roseville GC faded to ninth place in the final round.
Woodcreek and the Ridge qualify for the Zone Championship August 29-30 at Poppy Hills and Spyglass Hill.
