CARMEL – The team from Sea Ranch GC featuring Robert Bowen, Roland Combs, Diane Jordan and Lupe Oropeza shot an incredible net score of 19-under par on Tuesday to win the North Bay Zone Qualifier at Quail Lodge GC. Sea Ranch’s two-day net total of 34-under par, 252, was good enough to overtake first round leader Mayacama GC, who finished second at 33-under par, 253. Rick Herbert, Andy Katzin, Jim Sherbourne and James Silveria representing Mayacama followed yesterday’s 17-under par score with 16-under par 126 at the par 71 Quail Lodge to earn the other spot in August’s championship.
Sea Ranch’s round was benefited by five net birdies, four net eagles and three net double-eagles in a format which takes the two best net scores of a four person team per hole. Mayacama had no net bogeys on their round and also were able to convert six net birdies and five net eagles.
Rounding out the top-five are StoneTree GC, Oakmont GC and Adobe Creek GC. StoneTree and Oakmont which started the day in a tie for second along with Sea Ranch finished at 255 and 256, respectively, while Adobe Creek shot an 18-under par 124 to finish at 257 for a fifth place finish.
