SANTEE, California – A field of 90 players traveled to Santee, CA for this week’s Toyota Tour Cup event at Carlton Oaks Golf Club. Day one was a great day for golf and even out on this tough layout the average pace was only 4:35! Saturday’s play produced boys and girls both in the red as 2018 Player of the Year points leader Taehoon Song carded a -4, 68 and Dianna Lee posted the only under-par round for girls with a -1, 71. Sunday’s pace was great again and so were the scores. Just one shot back of Lee; Chloe Lam of Fountain Valley stayed consistent firing rounds of 72-73 to just edge out Jugar and Park by a single stroke and grab her first win in her young career. Burbank’s Jin “J.J.” Nakao carded a tournament low -6, 66 to vault him into an early lead and waited for the rest of the field to come in. However, the final group remained steady as Lincoln Melcher emerged as the victor with rounds of 69-70 to claim his 2nd career TTC title.
