2018 Event Recap
With 73 names on a leaderboard, it was a full house at River Ridge GC in Oxnard, CA host of the 2018 SCGA Public Links Net Championship.
There was great golf to be played by familiar face Amir Shafii (Griffith Park GC) who took the Arroyo Flight trophy with a final score of 4-under, 140. He struggled to keep his 2-stroke lead on John Figueroa (Golf Southern Cal Club) on day two, but the two players matched their final round scores for Shafii to come out on top.
The Mission Flight was a different story. 2018 Champion Ali Oberoi (Los Verdes GC) was an unsuspecting candidate, shooting 73 on day one. But on day two it was full speed ahead, firing a 67 for a final score of 4-under, pushing to a card-off with Mario Barajas (Olivas Links GC).
Calvin Branson (Links at Riverlakes Ranch) stole the show in the Pacific Flight, dominating the field with a final score 9-under, a 5-stroke lead over second place Henry Leeper (Tukwet Canyon GC).
