A quick update on my son, Redford — the reigning San Diego County Junior Golf Player of the Year.
Redford will be starting his sophomore year at UNLV this fall, but he has qualified for two very important tournaments this summer.
The first one is the 103rd Annual California Amateur Championship at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa from June 16th – 21st. George Von Elm, Ken Venturi, Gene Littler, Johnny Miller and Mark O’Meara are just a few of the previous winners of this tournament.
Although this tournament is over 100 years old, this is only the second time that it has been held in San Diego County. All contestants will play 36 holes of stroke play – 18 holes on each of their newly redesigned courses, the Champions Course and the Legends Course. The low 32 players will then advance to match play on the Champions Course.
The second tournament Redford qualified for is the 115th SCGA Amateur Championships at Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club from July 11th – 13th. This championship is open to amateurs who are members of a current SCGA member club with a handicap index of 5.4 or less at the time of registration.
The tournament format is as follows:
Friday, July 11th: Rounds 1 and 2 (36 holes stroke play). 84 players will play two rounds. Following the second round, the field will be cut to the low 42 scores (plus ties).
Saturday, July 12th: Round 3 (18 holes stroke play)
Saturday, July 13th: Round 4 (18 holes stroke play)
Mentoring and teaching Juniors is one of my passions. I have a proven track record of taking Juniors to the next level. This summer, I am offering Junior Camps in June and in August. Please consider enrolling your Junior Golfers in one of these camps
See you on the course!
