PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (September 4, 2018) – Sponsored by Capital Insurance Group, the 2017-2018 Junior Tour of Northern California (JTNC) crowned champions Sunday at the Fall Series III Championship at San Juan Oaks Golf Club.
San Jose resident Jack Steck shot 1-under 143 and Pleasanton resident Jasmine Chen shot 1-over 145 to win their respective divisions at the Fall Series III Championship held Saturday and Sunday at par-72 San Juan Oaks Golf Club.

In the Girls’ Championship, Chen was solid in both rounds to defeat runner-up Selena Tang of Fremont by three strokes. Chen posted five birdies overall, including two on Sunday on her front-nine that paved the way to victory.
