Vallejo GC made a dramatic comeback to take the title on a foggy morning at the annual NCGA Northeast Bay Zone Championship.
Teammates Ryan Rosendall, Eddie Pereira, Alex Kondylis and Randy Tsutsui from Vallejo GC put together a blistering 22-under 120 at par-71 Poppy Hills for a 33-under 249 tournament total. Their round was highlighted by a 4-under start on the tenth hole after Rosendall made a net ace and Kondylis made a net birdie. The rest of their scorecard included two double-eagles, four eagles, six birdies and two bogeys playing in a format that takes the two best net scores per hole of a four-man team.
Buchanan Fields GC shot a final round 14-under 128, for a total of 25-under 257 to finish in second place. Teammates Carl Thoreson, William Sullivan, Mark Hoag and Geoff Goselin had five eagles, six birdies and two bogeys on the final day.
