SAN MARCOS – The second and final College Showcase event took place at Twin Oaks Golf Course over the weekend where players had to prepare for a marathon day of golf yet again as they played 3- holes the first day.
Six girls ended the first round in red numbers after an early morning start with round two looming right after. Nadia Susanto and Michelle Wong both shared the low round not just for the day, but for the tournament for the girls, carding 69’s. After a long 36-hole day, Carol Cheng, Michelle Wong, Kaylee Sakoda, and Hailey Borja were the top four. Placing third, winning the card-off, Mylan Hirata shot a three round total of 217. Two shots better, Jasmine Lew took home the runner-up trophy. The Champion of the Showcase, shooting consistent low rounds of 70, 72, and 72, with 9 birdies for the tournament, was Carol Cheng.
After 18-holes were completed Guangshi “Stone” Chen was ahead by one shot firing a seven under, 65. However, several others got hot during the second round of the day and consistent play by Cameron Xiao and Nathan Irwin placed them atop the leaderboard at nine under with Christopher Chomyn just one shot back heading into Sunday’s final round. Consistency proved to be the key to success as Wenliang Xie fired rounds of 69-69-66 to finish at -12 and take his first TTC victory in convincing fashion.
