Future Champions Golf heads a course right next to the USC Trojan’s home field in Pasadena for the FCG National Tour Rose Bowl Championship. Brookside Golf Club offers two different courses, and FCG was lucky enough to be able to play both. The first day offered bright skies and slight breezes which challenged the players. The second day, though threatened by rain in many forecasts, turned out to be a beautiful sunny day with strong winds for nearly the entire round. The first course, created by Koiner, was all about making par for most players, but the E.O. Nay course opened up allowing players to go as low as they could manage. This exciting golf is just what we aim for at Future Champions Golf so without further ado, let’s begin the champion spotlight.
Beginning with the boys, bobby Kim from La Puente, Ca put on quite a show, coming from behind victory after shooting 77-65 for a two day total of 142(E). Second place was awarded to Ambroze Abbracciamento from Washington Crossing, PA after he shot 74-69 for a tournament total of 143(+1). Kyle Stewart from Fresno, CA takes home third place after shooting 77-72 for a total of 149(+7) after two days. Next up is the Girls college prep division.
