NCGA Zone Qualifier
March 6, 2021

Baylands Golf Links

First played in 1967, the NCGA Zone Championship is a four-person team event for regular clubs. Fourteen regional championships are staged with the champion and runner-up qualifying for the final championship at the end of August. The Palo Alto Golf Club will use a two-person team format in this qualifier. Two of these teams will qualify and combine to compete in the NCGA SF Bay Zone event to be held on July 19-20 at Poppy Hills & Carmel Valley Ranch. If our team qualifies, they will advance to the Zone Championship to be held on Aug 30-31 at Spyglass Hill & Poppy HIlls.

Format: 2 man team Best Ball

The top two teams will form a 4-some to represent Palo Alto Golf Club in Zone Event.

In our first Tier, David Bridgman + Howard Stein finished the round with a net score of 65 (-7) and earning themselves 55 points each. Second place was a tie between Ben Gardner + Andrew Clauson and John Driver + Anthony Tuiono with a net score of 66 (-6).

Second Tier winners and half of our NCGA Zone Event representative goes to William Wei + Kevin Yamada with an amazing net score of 62 (-10). Second place, and our other 1/2 of the team, with an impressive 64 (-8) goes to Xiaoming Chen + Smith Sirisakorn. Third place honors are awarded to Ryan Hallum + Raymond Fales with their net score of 66 (-6).

For our final Third Tier, Jack Woods + Chuck Pickett took down first place with a net score of 65 (-7). For the second time of the day, we have another 2nd place tie between Ross Erickson + Lou Sehl and Niraj Jain + Dinesh Barman after they posted a net score of 66 (-6) to finish off the day.

Let's give a great big round of applause for our 2021 4-Ball NCGA Zone Event Qualifiers William Wei, Kevin Yamada, Xiaoming Chen, and Smith Sirisakorn.
