April 29-30 | Chuck Corica GC P ebble Beach's Seb Crampton, 21, went wire- to-wire, flirting with the championship record along the way. A redshirt junior at Cal, Crampton fired a final round 4-under 68 on the Earl Fry North Course to post 15-under 269, defeating runner- up Andrew Bonner by five strokes. The former Stevenson School standout's 72-hole total of 269 was just three strokes shy of the champi- onship record (266), set by Matt Bettencourt in 2002 and matched in 2014 by Jonathan De Los Reyes. Bonner, who formerly played at the University of Oregon, had a final round 68 to finish at 274. Olympic Club member Jason Anthony and Jake Goodman shared third place at 275. In the Senior Championship, Granite Bay GC member Jeff Hoffman, who turned 55 in February, signed for rounds of 68-71 and a 36-hole aggregate of 3-under 139, defeating runner-up Jim Knoll by five shots. Knoll, who shot back-to-back rounds of 72, has won the Senior title a record four times. Alameda Commuters Championship May 22 | Sierra View CC T he Harker School in San Jose finally captured its first NorCal title, while Mission San Jose's Aaron Chen won the Individual championship. The Harker School shot a score of even-par 360, rolling to a six-shot victory over Mission San Jose. Daulet Tuleubayev and Jin Kim, who each posted rounds of 1-under 71, led the way for the Eagles while teammates Ryan Vaughan (72), Sandip Nirmel (72), Avi Kehmani (74) and Victor Shin (77), whose score didn't count, chipped in for the winning team. Chen of Mission San Jose also notched his maiden victory behind a 67 that included an eagle and six birdies. May 22-23 | Quail Lodge Resort C orey Weworski simply wanted to live up to being the defending champion. The 55-year- old Carlsbad resident ended up doing that and more. Weworski had all facets of her game in sync, shooting a final-round 1-under 71 to win by seven strokes over runner-up Lynne Cowan. With the victory, Weworski, who finished with a two-day total of 1-over 145, became the seventh player to go back-to-back in the event's 39-year history. "I didn't feel a lot of pressure coming in," Weworski said. "I just wanted to represent myself well." A day after opening with a solid 74, Weworski turned up the dial. Despite breezy winds, she carded three birdies – including a 40-foot putt on No.6 – to go against just two bogeys. Over 36 holes, she found herself in a bunker only once. "I was just really consistent," Weworski said. "I'll go for the three-peat next year." Only three players – Marianne Towersey, Barbara Stephan and Mildred Stanley – have achieved the feat. Cowan, who went back-to-back in 2014-2015, shot a final round 75. Towersey won the Super Senior Championship crown (age 65-over) with a two-day score of 167.
