PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (July 24, 2018) – Sponsored by Capital Insurance Group, the 2017-2018 Junior Tour of Northern California (JTNC) crowned champions Monday at the Summer Series IV Championship at Spring Creek Golf and Country Club.
Menlo Park resident Bill Kirkpatrick shot 1-over 143 and San Ramon resident Danielle Suh shot 3-over 145 to win their respective divisions at the Summer Series IV Championship held Sunday and Monday at par-71 Spring Creek Golf and Country Club.
Kirkpatrick notched his first win of the 2017-2018 season thanks to steady play each day. He’d open with a 2-over 73 and followed that up with an even better 70 to defeat runner-up Ryan Grauman of Alamo by a shot.
Over his two rounds, Kirkpatrick would card nine birdies. He’d be clutch on the final back-nine, carding a 32 with a birdie on the 17th to hold on for the victory.
Grauman had a second round 70 and also shot 32 on the back-nine thanks in part to an eagle on the 14th, but it wasn’t enough to catch Kirkpatrick.
Third place went to Nathan Wang of Fremon t at 145, while Chase Hascup of Vacaville and Christopher Giardina of Merced shared fourth place at 146.
