Temecula, CA (Nov. 10-11, 2018) A first of its kind, the Lizette Salas Classic saw Connor Williams and Ashley Yun take home the coveted first place trophies!
In partnership with the SCPGA and the Toyota Tour Cup, the Lizette Salas Classic brought together the best of the Toyota Tour Cup players for an eventful two-day competition with a special surprise for Sunday’s participants.
After Connor Williams’ first round of 69, he headed into day two at the head of the pack followed closely by Brian Xu (71), Benjamin Hong and Yuefeng Ma (72’s). In the end, it was Williams and Surapat Chokprajakchat who faced a playoff for the coveted first place trophy. Williams edged Chokprajakchat with a putt for par to clinch the first place trophy finishing even par.
For the girls, round one led to early leaders, Serena Sepersky, Ashley Yun and Angela Liu as the three to watch. Going into Sunday’s competition, Yun remained consistent and strong pushing her way through to the top at the turn. Yun ended the day at one under to win first place.
The day concluded with laughter and selfies and Lizette Salas of the LPGA Tour came to show her support and cheer the players on!
“Toyota Tour cup had a huge impact on my career, not just as a junior but as a professional, so when asked to be part of this event I didn’t hesitate,” said Salas.
