ALAMEDA, Calif. (April 24, 2016) - Holding a 10-shot lead entering the final round of the Alameda Commuters, the question wasn't whether or not Peter Kuest would win, but would he break the scoring record of 266 (18-under) held by PGA Tour player Matt Bettencourt (2002) and Jonathan De Los Reyes (2014).

Kuest, a high school senior from Fresno, Calif, looked poised to break the record after opening with a 2-under par front nine to get to 19-under. The back nine was a different story as Kuest struggled for seemingly the first time in the tournament. He would shoot 4-over on the back-nine for a 73 and a 269 total.

Nonetheless, Kuest won by a margin of a four shots and receives the championship award and the Bob Blomberg Medal, given in honor of six-time winner and Alameda resident Bob Blomberg.

Andrew Bonner finished in 2nd at 11-under after an impressive final round 67 followed by Joshua McCarthey, Daniel Semmler, and Kevin Noto.
