3rd Rankings of Teams

The third rankings of TEAMS has been posted and like last week I did not have any scores from the Orange Empire Conference. My scores come from Jerry Hannula, Ass't Athletic Director at Saddleback College and the last data I have from Jerry is March 12 so I assume spring break and conferences away have his attention and focus. Nonetheless I have made the computations and posted my results. There are now three teams bunched in the first three positions with each leading its own Conference competition. Palomar, Cypress, and Canyons (COC) are at the three quarter mark in the season 2019.

Another note from this season is that I have not gotten any Invitational (all-team) or pre SoCal event scores to add to the mix. They might be coming up

Pacific Coast Athletic Conference Match #7

Match #7 for the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference was hosted March 27, 2019 on St Mark GC. Desert (COD) won the event with Clem HEURTIN of Desert (COD) winning the medalist honors. Results are posted.

Western State Conference Match #7

Spring Valley Lake CC, my old home course, was the site of the #7 Match for the Western State Conference. Canyons (COC) won its 5th Conference match in a row with Matt MANSHOLT of Canyons (COC) winning medalist honors for the second week in a row. He likes the high desert courses it seems! Results are posted.

Pacific Coast Athletic Conference Match #6

El Camino CC hosted Match #6 for the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference on March 25, 2019. Palomar continued their win streak with Zach BROWN of Palomar taking medalists honors. Results are posted.

2nd Rankings of Teams

With the notation that I did not receive any scores this week from the Orange Empire Conference (Spring Break likely), I have tabulated the TEAM Rankings for the second week. As play heads into the heart of the season, teams are beginning to assert themselves within their conferences. Hopefully the weather will be more spring like in the weeks ahead.

The Second TEAM Rankings for 2019 Season find
Palomar on top with Cypress closely behind.

Mt San Jacinto EAGLE Classic

Mt San Jacinto College hosted its Eagle Classic at Soboba Springs Golf Course yesterday March 8, 2019. The weather was cold and the course is always a great challenge. The results are posted and note the Orange Empire Conference counted play as a regular conference match as well.

Kyoshiro AZUMADA, Palomar College, was the Eagle Classic medalist shooting
71. I would point out that Kyoshiro also medaled at the RCC Invite with a 69 and the Cuyamaca Classic with a 67. Three fine competitions on three fine golf courses under varied conditions. Keep up the stellar play Kyoshiro!

Consolitdation in Planning Stage

SoCal Men's Golf is looking ahead in Season 2020 to have the Orange Empire Conference host several teams currently playing in the Pacific Athletic Conference and one team in the Western State Conference. The idea looks like this:

Suggestions as of March 6, 2019:
  • Each team would host 5 teams within their division and then participate in two all conference neutral tournaments, one hosted by the Inland conference and one by the Coastal conference. 
  • There would still be a 36 hole conference  championship held where all twelve teams participate.  
  • The top team from each division would advance to the regionals and the remaining 4 teams would be selected from the total points earned from the 2 neutral matches and conference championship.  That would ensure the top 6 teams advance and represent the OEC in the regionals.

There will be tweaks perhaps before all the dust settles but I think this alignment will be great and I support the efforts in this regard!
