Indian Wells, California
September 19 & 20th, 2015
The Palm Desert’s Indian Wells Golf Resort was the latest stop for the Toyota Tour Cup’s 2015 season. Triple digit temperatures were forecasted for round one with little to no wind to give the players any reprieve. Despite these tough playing conditions, the players soldiered on. The course experienced a bad storm less than a month ago and the property lost over 1000 trees. Although the course was still in the process of cleaning up, the facility did an excellent job of providing great course conditions for the competitors.
Despite the 103 degree temperatures, several players were able to post rounds under par. Cameron Sisk set the pace with a blistering, set the bogey-free, 4-under 68 which was three shots clear of the nearest competitors at 1-under par (Ellis Tirado & Andrew Posin-WD). Notable first round accomplishments included an Eagle on hole #1 by Leila Dizon and another Eagle on hole # 11 by Randy Vergel de Dios. The girls division was a much tighter race after round one with the lead shared at one over par by 3 players (Emilie Nguyen, Brianna Navarrosa, Leila Dizon).
During day 2 of competition not only did the players bring the heat, but Mother Nature did as well, with temperatures hitting 106 degrees. The course was in fantastic condition with the greens rolling fast and true. Notable accomplishments included Eagles on hole # 7 by Ada Wong and Kyle Kinnane. The boys division saw a playoff between Ellis Tirado & Kyle Kinnane. While the girls division went into a playoff between Brianna Navarrosa & Leila Dizon. When all was said and done, Brianna Navarrosa and Kyle Kinnane came out on top of the pack, clinching the victory. Congratulations to our winners!
