SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (June 22, 2017) -- As the number of players gets whittled down, Yianni Gogonas of AmateurGolf.com spent some time on the range at Olympic Club talking to players.

One of the featured matches of the day was about to go out, and you would never know either of the players were even the least bit nervous. In the end, it was Danny Ochoa of Carlsbad who won the day, 1-up.

Ochoa went 2-down after five holes, but was able to turn the tide before the front nine was over. He won the challenging 11th and 12th holes with pars as the junior member of Olympic Club struggled with a bogey and double. When Ochoa bogeyed the monster par-5 16th against Lai's steady par, the match was close but Lai couldn't convert birdies on Nos. 17 or 18 so that's where it finished, 1-up in Ochoa's favor.

ABOUT THE California Amateur

The Championship is open to amateur golfers who have established current indexes of 4.4 and are members in good standing of the Southern California Golf Association, the Northern California Golf Association, or the Public Links Golf Association of Southern California. Nonexempt players must qualify. An entrant may play in only one qualifying event, even if the golfer belongs to clubs in both Southern California and Northern California. The 18-hole qualifying rounds will determine the qualifiers.

The championship field will play 36 holes of qualifying at a Northern or Southern California Location, with the low 32 golfers from that combined field moving on to match play (with a playoff, if necessary, to determine the final spots). Two rounds each of 18-hole match play will follow on Thursday and Friday and the 36-hole final match will be on Saturday.

The location will rotate yearly between Northern and Southern California locations.
