Redford, my son and the SDJGA 2013 Player of the Year, made the cut on Friday for the 115th Annual SCGA Amateur Championship at Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club.
He shot two rounds of 74 for 4 over par and tied for 22nd place. He will tee off on Saturday morning at 8:09am. You can follow the live leaderboard and track Redford’s progress throughout the rest of the event.
I am carrying the bag for him for this tournament and I couldn’t be prouder of his progress from last year. Playing NCAA Division 1 golf for a year at UNLV has given him more consistency, confidence and maturity. As a golf instructor, I can see the consistency in his game. As a dad, I see the maturity of my son in the last 12 months.
Instructing Junior Golfers is one of the best aspects of my job. Seeing my son hone his game at the collegiate level gives me so much pride because I know that I have instilled a great foundation that his golf coaches at UNLV are taking to the next level.
Wish us luck as we tackle the next two days and we hope to climb the leaderboard against some of the best competition in Southern California!
