CIG-Sponsored Junior Golf Tour of Northern California Crowns Winners at Summer Series III Championship at Spring Creek Golf and Country Club in Ripon
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (July 21, 2020) – Sponsored by Capital Insurance Group, the 2019-2020 Junior Tour of Northern California (JTNC) crowned champions Monday at the Summer Series III Championship at Spring Creek Golf and Country Club.
Ryan Meyer shot 2-over 144 and Kiara Selena Tang shot 5-overer 147 to win their respective divisions at the Summer Series III Championship held Sunday and Monday at par-71 Spring Creek.
Meyer captured his first win of the season due in part to a terrific opening round 69 that featured four birdies and just two bogeys. Meyer would close out the round with back-to-back birdies on the 17th and 18th holes.
A day later, Meyer was again steady, posting a 75 to run away to a four-shot victory over runner-up Tylor Chou. Chou also had a nice opening round, carding a 72. He’d fall back to a 76 on Monday to come in at 148.
Third place went to Chanhee Ryu at 149 after a final round 76. Joe Hayden was fourth at 150. Three players—Arthur Lyons, John Snyder and Howard Shu—were T-5 at 152.
In the Girls’ Championship, Tang captured her second win of the season due in part to a crucial birdie on the 16th hole in the final round. She’d have four total birdies on the day en route to a final round 74, helping her edge runner-up Cynthia Zhang by a stroke. Zhang, who had opened with a solid 71, had a chance to force a playoff but bogeyed the 18th for a final round 77 and two-day total of 148.
Third place went to Samantha Lin at 157, with Ashley Knepshield placing fourth at 158. Ryan Flynn and Hannah Sangha were T-5 at 159.
In the Boys’ First Flight Championship, Matthew Lin shot a final round 73 and defeated Ethan Lien in a card-off playoff for the win. Both players had finished at 7-over 149.
Third place went to Benjamin Wang at 151, with Joshua Kim taking fourth at 154. Arnold He and Ben Friedman were T-5 at 155.
In the Girls’ First Flight Championship, Emma Wang shot a final round 75 to come in at 156 and defeat c-runners-up Lily Peng and Madalynn Lee by three shots. Peng and Lee each finished at 159. Peng would earn second place in a card-off.
Fourth place went to Ashley Mo at 164. Sohini Pillay and Leila Moassessi were T-5 at 169.
Ethan Lien had the shot of the tournament, acing the par-3 15th on Monday.
The next event on the JTNC calendar is the season-ending JTNC Tour Championship, set for July 28-29 at Poppy Hills Golf Course in Pebble Beach.
