PEBBLE BEACH – Qualifying for the NCGA’s oldest and most prestigious event took place across seven different Northern California courses on Monday. Teal Bend GC hosted more than 75 golfers and had 28 spots available. Mitch Card beat out all other competitors at the Sacramento-area golf course as he fired a 5-under par 67. A 77 at Teal Bend in most cases was good enough to qualify as seven players qualified with that score while two others earned alternate spots, respectively. San Juan Oaks GC held the second largest qualifier as it had 27 spots available for more than 70 players. Leading the way were Levi Garcia and Nick Moore, who each shot a 2-under par 70. For the 27 who qualified a score of 78 or better was needed.
Poppy Hills GC had the third largest field of participants and awarded 21 spots. Finishing atop the leaderboard was Steve Warne, who posted a 2-under par 70, three strokes better than the nearest competitor. Higher scores managed better at the Robert Trent Jones Jr. design than other qualifying sites as 79 or better earned a spot.
Paradise Valley GC and Roddy Ranch GC also hosted a couple of the bigger qualifying fields as each site had 17 spots up for grabs. Wes Payne led the way at the Roddy Ranch GC qualifier as he fired an impressive 5-under par 67, which was closely followed by Brian Knoll at 68. At Paradise Valley GC Derek Zachman edged out three others for top honor, posting a score of 1-under par 71.
The Reserve at Spanos Park and Stevinson Ranch GC proved to be a little tougher for competitors as even-par 72s took top honors. Eric Taylor and Josh Stone hit that number, leading the way of the 12 qualifying players at The Reserve at Spanos Park, while David Halvorson posted the lone 72 at Stevinson Ranch GC, which had a total of eight available spots.
All results are unofficial until the NCGA staff has had the opportunity to verify all scorecards.
