The weekend of June 4th took Future Champions Golf out to Colina Park Golf Course for the Kids Tour Spring Championship. The day was highlighted by a light breeze and a heat of about 95 degrees. The players started out play on several different holes in a shotgun manner right at 12:30pm and each player played 18 holes. The tricky course demands accurate shots off the tee and excellent command over their short games. Moving forward in our recap we advance forward onto our champion spotlight.
The Boys 11-14 division would be the first to receive awards, as we moved from eldest to youngest on the awards table. Nikko De Castro from National City, CA became our champion after shooting 52(-2). Second place was a tie between Jacob Paule from Chula Vista, CA and Lorenzo Neilson from Menifee, CA after both boys shoot 57(+3). The card off between the two would result in Lorenzo Neilson finishing in second place, leaving Jacob Paule, who finished in third place after the card off.
The Girls 11-14 division would receive their trophies just after the Boys 11-14 division. Kristian Wilmes from Carlsbad, CA became our Spring Champion after she shot 55(+1), a solid round of golf. Second place went to Diane Tang from San Diego, Ca after she shot 64(+10). Lastly, third place was a tie between Lauren Coast from Rancho Bernardo, Ca and Carissa Freeman from La Mesa, CA after they shot 69(+15). After the card off, Carissa Freeman would be our third place finisher with the lower score on hole 18.
