Future Champions Golf made it’s way back out to San Marcos to host the 2016 Western States Junior Players Cup at the beautiful St. Marks Golf Club. This past weekend was all about the younger division, featuring players no more than 12 years of age. The sloping course provided a challenge for all players and caddies, as many would double check their distance before hitting on the challenging course. Without further ado, let’s kick off our event recap.
The Boys 11-12 division played from the gold tee markers at St. Marks Golf Club and many shot rather well. Luke Potter from Encinitas, CA took home the victory after shooting 73-72 for a two day total of 145(+3). Second place was awarded to Kyle An from Aliso Viejo, CA after he shot 77-75 for a tournament total of 152(+10). Go Nakatsukasa from San Diego, CA shot 79-75 to total 154 for the tournament, and received the third place award for his consistent play.
The Girls 11-12 division is next to be featured in our champion spotlight. The first place trophy was awarded to Karen Tsuru from Carlsbad, CA after shooting 76-82 for a two day total of 158(+14). Second place was awarded to Jiya Dalal from San Diego, CA after she shot 88-85 for a tournament total of 173(+13). Dalal would beat out Isabella Ranches in a card off. Ranches, who also hails from San Diego, shot exactly the same totals as Dalal 88-85 for a two day total 173(+29).
Congratulations to all 11-12 division competitors, we look forward to watching you play at your next FCG event!
Gawhan Lee from Geoje, Korea led the charge for the 9-10 divisions as he shot 97-87 for a tournament total of 184(+40) and was awarded with the first place trophy. Congratulations on your victory, we look forward to seeing you at your next FCG Event!
8 and Under
The 8 and under divisions played from their own special set of tees on the lengthy course. Kai Salinas from San Diego, CA became our victor after shooting 44-44 for a two day total of 88(+18). Yu Ohashi from Kumamoto Japan finished right behind Salinas to take second place after shooting 44-49 for a tournament total of 93.(+23).
