RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CA (February 26, 2017) -- Krando Nishiba used rounds of 72-69 to post 141 and win the Rancho Santa Margarita Amateur by two shots over Ricky Castillo (71-72--143).

Playing at Tijeras Creek Golf Club Nishiba began the final day two-strokes off the lead before rallying to the title. Nishbia, 15-years-old, has shown the ability during his young career to step up in the big moment most notably in 2015 when he rolled in a 35-footer to lift California to the PGA Junior League Golf Championship title.

First round co-leader Cody Hall (70-74--144) settled for third place, Dan Sullivan (72-73--145) ended fourth while Connor Campbell (76-71--147) and Bucky Coe (73-74--147) shared fourth.

Matthew Sandoval was part of the first round lead before struggling to a tie for 13th.
