Sabrina Iqbal of San Jose, the Junior Tour of Northern California Girls’ Player of the Year each of the last two years, claimed the No.1 spot over the weekend by posting an even-par 72 at Presidio Golf Course.
A sophomore at Pioneer High, Iqbal won the California Interscholastic Federation Girls’ State title in 2014. One of her 2015 highlights was capturing the NCGA Junior Girls’ Championship at Spyglass Hill.
Fellow JTNC members Kiran Sangha (78), Belinda Hu (78) and Ty Akabane (79) claimed the No.2 through No.4 seeds, respectively.
Over in the Senior Championship, Roddy Ranch member Scott Anderson earned the No.1 seed by posting a 1-under 71.
The No.2 seed will be defending champion Gary Vanier, who has won the Senior title a record three times (2009, 2013).
In the Super Senior Championship, the No.1 seed will be Jay Guerin, who led the field with a 73. Defending Super Senior champion Joseph Rogers will be the No.2 seed.
Championship match play begins this weekend Presidio GC and Harding Park GC.
