SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. (July 8, 2008)--Craig and son Grant Myers of Coto de Caza shot a net 68 in the President Flight and Carl Curtis and son Trevor, also of Coto de Caza, scored a net 66 in the Vice President Flight to claim the 2008 titles in the 2nd SCGA Parent/Junior Championship at Marbella CC.
The Myers duo, playing to a team 2-handicap, shot a gross, even-par 70 in the net modified foursomes (alternate shot) format, which included three gross birdies and two net birdies and only three bogeys in the effort.
“We hit a lot of good shots today,” said the elder Myers, 47, the VP of sales for a technology company and El Niguel CC member who has participated in the SCGA’s Tournament of Club Champions.
“[The format] was interesting because it kept you focused on each shot,” said Grant Myers, a 17-year-old junior on the Dana Hills High School golf team that has also played in AJGA and IJGT events. “Dad was a good partner; he didn’t get angry at me.”
The Myers’ topped the duo of John and Andrew Hamby of Temecula (net 69), Jim and Andrew Akers of Coto de Caza (71), Robert and Michael Timpson of South Pasadena (72) and Rick and Kevin Smylie of Murrieta (74), who took home second- through fifth-place plates, respectively.
A late entry into the event, the Curtis team, members and residents at Coto de Caza, played to an 8 handicap as a team and collected four birdies and a net eagle in their round, giving them a one-shot lead over Mike and Justin Wilcock of Irvine (net 67) in the Vice President Flight. Other plate winners were Joe and Kyle Blatchford of Valencia (net 69), John and Frank Cuccia of Murrieta and Ontario (net 70) and Kurt and Chase Nicolai of Long Beach (net 71).
