April 14-22 | Corica Park (North Course) A high school senior won the Championship, while a familiar face swept both Senior titles. Ryan Grauman, 18, of Danville, a member of the Junior Tour of Northern California, grabbed the first round lead with a 7-under 64 and never looked back, finishing the 72-hole Championship at 9-under 275 to defeat runner-up Matt Heitel by a stroke. Headed to St. Mary's University this fall, Grauman's second big move came via a final round 67 despite strong winds. Sebastian Iqbal of San Jose and Brian Ma, winner of the 2017 San Francisco City, finished T-3 at 277. In Senior play, California Golf Hall of Famer Gary Vanier got to celebrate twice. The 67-year-old won the inaugural Super-Senior Championship, defeating record five-time NCGA Senior Player of the Year Jim Knoll with a birdie on the third hole of a sudden-death playoff. The two had finished regulation tied at 5-under 137. Two days later, Vanier posted rounds of 69-71 to win the Senior title by two over Todd Barsotti. In a combined four tournament rounds, Vanier never shot over par. The two wins boosted Vanier's career Alameda Commuters win total to eight. Previously, the part-time Idaho resident won the Championship three straight years (1988-90) and Senior title three times (2007, '13, '16).
