Suh Shines at Western Intercollegiate
The Junior Tour of Northern California had quite a weekend at the annual Western Intercollegiate at par-70 Pasatiempo Golf Club.
Justin Suh, the only male to win JTNC Player of the Year honors twice (2013, 2015), shot 5-under 205 to not only win the individual title but also help USC win the team crown by a whopping 18 strokes.
Finishing in a tie for second at 209 was Pepperdine’s Joshua McCarthy, who won JTNC Boy’s Player of the Year honors in 2014.
The duo each beat Stanford’s Maverick McNealy, who placed fourth at 210. McNealy, the winner of the 2015 NCGA Amateur Match Play Championship and the No.2 ranked amateur in the world, was aiming for his 12th collegiate win. McNealy is currently tied with Tiger Woods for the most in Cardinal history.
