CARMEL – Pajaro Valley’s George Barrall, Don McCombs, Jose Espinoza and Jason Haas captured the NCGA South Coast Zone Championship at Quail Lodge GC.
Pajaro Valley fired a 32-under-par net 254 in the format that takes the low two of four net scores per hole., powered by a second-round best of 15-under at Quail Lodge. That score had the Royal Oaks Club four clear of runner-up and first-round leader Links of Paso Robles (Charlie Zinn, Brandon Hinrichs, Jake Hinrichs and Colton Imming), who was unable to match its stellar, 18-under first-round score. Pacific Grove GL held onto the third-place position it started the final round in, finishing five back of the champions.
Both Pajaro Valley and Links at Paso Robles qualify for the Zone Championship, to be held August 29 and 30 at Poppy Hills and Spyglass Hill.
