The second tournament being run, and perhaps the most popular one for the weekend, is the National Tour Spring Championship played on the intimidating course at Carlton Oaks Country Club, a Canadian Tour venue. The Pete Dye designed course features waste bunkers, undulating fairways and greens as well as elevation changes for tee shots and approaches. Though the course may seem straightforward at first glance, even after minor tee adjustments it proved to be more than enough of a challenge for or field, especially after the strong winds on the second day. Without further delay we move forward to our champion spotlight.
The Boys College Prep division was the first to finish both days of the National Tour Spring Championship after playing from the blue tees during the weekend. Scotty Earle from San Diego, CA finished in first place after shooting 75-71 for a two day total of 146(+2). Second place was awarded to Seldon Doyle from Thousand Oaks, CA after he shot 73-74 for a two day total of 147(+3).
