Full Field Scores, Prizes and Statistics

Arthur Hess of Rancho Santa Margarita is the San Clemente Men's Amateur Golf Champion for 2022. Arthur is a freshman at Saddleback College and a member at Mission Viejo Country Club. Arthur started out quite well with 3 under 69, one behind round 1 co-leaders Abe Candelaria, of Arizona, the 2021 San Diego City Amateur Champion and Tanner Johnson from Las Vegas. Arthur came back Sunday with a 4 under 68 to for a one stroke win over Steen Zeman from Oxnard, freshman at Ventura College who tied for low round of the tournament, 67, with Jackson Bragg of Chico and a sophomore at Whittier College. In third place was Kevin Cahillane from Laguna Niguel.

The Senior Division was the bailiwick of San Clemente Men's Golf Club's own Gary Barker from Laguna Niguel. Gary set the pace on Saturday with the low round of the Senior Division at 2 under, 70. Comparatively speaking, he struggled a bit on Sunday with a 75 but it was good enough to edge out Kory Frost and 2 others, Robert Engel and Greg Schweitzer. That is no mean accomplishment as Frost qualified for the 2021 USGA Senior Amateur and defeated multi SCGA Championship winner and USGA Senior Amateur medallist, Tim Hogarth, in the first round of match play. Kory was tied for second with Robert Engel and Greg Schweitzer of our own San Clemente Men's Golf Club. Greg is past Club and Senior Club Champion.

We dodged the rain on Saturday but the course was still a little wet from Friday's storm but the 155 players who teed it up still managed to make few birdies and eagles. We don't mention bogies, double bogies, and the dreaded "other".
See you next year!
