PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (September 10, 2018) – Sponsored by Capital Insurance Group, the 2017-2018 Junior Tour of Northern California (JTNC) crowned champions Sunday at the Fall Series IV Championship at Haggin Oaks Golf Club.
Granite Bay resident Dylan McDermott shot 8-under 136 and Pleasant Hill resident Madelyn Gamble shot 1-under 143 to win their respective divisions at the Fall Series IV Championship held Saturday and Sunday at par-72 Haggin Oaks Golf Complex.
