CIF/SCGA Southern California Regional Championship

May 26, 2016 at Brookside GC

The California Interscholastic Federation is divided into four districts, and each provides contestants in the events based on district student population. The Southern Regional is a one-day event, with teams and individual students competing in 18 holes of stroke play. At the conclusion of the round, the top three teams and top nine individuals (not already on a qualifying team) advance to the state championship, which is conducted in Southern California every other year.

For the sixth straight year Brookside GC hosted the CIF/SCGA Southern California Regional Championship, as the Pasadena golf course was buzzing with anxious players, players, coaches, family and friends early Thursday morning. An 8 a.m. shotgun start that saw 124 junior boy golfers take the course ended with three teams and nine other individual players advancing on to the State High School Championship, which will be held June 1 at San Gabriel CC.

Winning the team portion of the event for the second time in three years was Westlake High School, which dominated from start to finish, including having two golfers finish in the top 6 on the individual leaderboard. Led by Matthew Wolff's score of 4-under-par 68, Westlake had a total team score of 6-over par 366. That bested second place, as well as defending champs, Torrey Pines by four strokes, and third place Wilson by 6.

But turning in the best round of the day was Palm Desert High School Sophomore Charlie Reiter, who torched the No. 1 course at Brookside with a 5-under-par 67, matching last year's winning score. Reiter, who began the round on hole No. 8, got his round off to a good start with an eagle on Hole 11. He would fall into a great stretch of golf on Hole 15, recording three straight birdies to pass early leader Wolff, who was sitting at 4-under par. Reiter would play the from nine in even par. With the win, Reiter adds his name to trophy that boasts names such as Tiger Woods, Rickie Fowler, Phil Mickelson and Craig Stadler.

"It's really, really cool to be added to a list like that," said Reiter. "I especially like Rickie Fowler, so I'm pretty excited about this."

Reiter beat out Wolff as well as Jericho Betts by a stroke to earn the individual title.
