OXNARD, California – The sixth Toyota Tour Cup of the year took place April 14th and 15th at River Ridge Golf Club. Out in the hills of Oxnard, with the ocean breeze and blue skies, the first round witnessed a multitude of low numbers. A total of 6 girls and 11 boys put up red figures. The headliners, Angelina Kim of Los Angeles and Jake Marek of Westlake Village both put up a 4-under par round, 68. Closely behind for the boys, Bo Jin turned in a 69 and Samuel Choi carded a 70. There was a tight race for the girl’s champion. Behind Angelina there were two girls tied for second at 3-under: Caroline Canales and Kamille Dimayuga. After an overcast and breezy day, the gap between leaders slowly closed. Angelina Kim and Sherilyn Villanueva were able to secure tied for second placings with a 74 and 69, respectively. Hot off of being the top player and earning her exemption from the Spring Q-School, Caroline Canales walked away with the trophy with another solid round, 70, for a 5-under two day score. Jake Marek was able to secure his tied for second placing with 4 birdies in his last 6 holes to finish 2-under overall. Alrik Pan, 2-under, had three birdies and an eagle in his round for a 71. Our boy’s champion, Taehoon Song, snuck from behind with a 69 to catapult him to 4-under overall and increased his lead in the 2018 Toyota Tour Cup points race.
