Eighteen-year-old Miguel Delgado shot four-under par in the final round and 11-under overall to win the 88th iteration of the Commuters Golf Championship last Sunday, April 26, on the Earl Fry Course.

After 54 holes of golf action it looked like anyone’s tournament to win when fourth-round action began Sunday morning. Delgado entered the final round in a four-way tie for the lead at eight-under 205 with Carlos Briones, Jonathan Keane and Finigan Tilly.

Dismal precipitation this past winter and a melted snowpack has pushed the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) board of directors to implement a series of actions to protect and stretch the East Bay’s water supply.
