Jonathan De Los Reyes created a wide distance between himself and the rest of the field on his way to win the 87th Annual Alameda Commuters Tournament last Sunday, May 4.
De Los Reyes entered the second weekend of the tournament with a four-stroke lead at seven-under par 135. But his play in the third round, or moving day as it is called at the Commuters removed any doubt that Reyes would be the winner.
The ladies of the Alameda Women’s Golf Club (AWGC) decided to play a Ham Shoot-style tournament on the Jack Clark Course last Thursday, April 17.
The Ham Shoot-style makes the competition that much more intriguing because it pits the participants’ best performance against one another. Each player’s score indicates the results of playing 18 holes as they normally play, then throwing out the scores of each player’s three worst holes. Then the handicap of each golfer is factored in to get a final tally.
The St. Joseph men’s golf team notched its tenth win of the year last week against Pinole Valley at the Chuck Corica Golf Course. The Pilots put on an overall team performance with three of its five players shooting in the mid-30s. James Lemos shot a low of 36 (one over par), Thomas Lee shot 38 (three over par), and Octavio Guzman shot 39 (four over par).
“These three players have done a great job in helping the team get to 10-1, along with the help of R.J. Pimentel and Joey DiGiuillio,” said Coach Vic Quintell.
