Affiliate Team Championship

Aug. 17-18, 2015 at Sycuan Resort (Oak Glen)

This event is open to two-person teams, with both players’ members of a SCGA Affiliate Club, and each having indexes not exceeding 24.4. If a player is above an index of 24.4, they will play down to an index of 24.4 for the championship. The format for the event is Net Four-Ball stroke play for Round 1 and Pinehurst for Round 2. In Pinehurst each partner drives from each tee then plays the second shot with the other’s ball. After the second shot, the team chooses which ball it will use to complete the hole, hitting alternate shots. Handicap is deducted from the team score at the end of the round.


The final round of the 28th SCGA Affiliate Team Championship concluded Tuesday at Sycuan Resort in Oak Glen. After a tournament-low round of 63 in the Pinehurst format, coupled with an impressive 67 in Monday's Four-Ball format, the team of Lippen Lau (Los Angeles Chinese GC) and Duane Yoshida (South Bay Pub Links GC) combined for a score of 130 to give the duo their first SCGA Affiliate Team Championship title.

After a 66 on day one, Doug Lawson (Pagni Golf) and Raymond Surprenant (Cottonwood GC) showed consistency to card a 65 in the Four-Ball for a combined score of 131, earning the squad a second place finish. The pair of William Davison and Gary Davison from Coast Golfers San Diego followed up a blistering first-round 64 with a 68 on Monday for a total of 132 to take third place.

This 36-hole Championship is one of the more unique competitions the SCGA offers, incorporating two distinctly different formats and hosting players of varying abilities. The SCGA Affiliate Team Championship is open to two-person teams, with both players being members of an SCGA Affiliate Club (not necessarily the same club), and each having active current Handicap Indexes as of the date of registration.
