The Bay Area Pinseekers GC held a silent auction during their recent Annual Meeting and wanted to give something back to the sport and kids who are trying to get into it. Through the generosity of some local courses and their members, they were able to raise $1,045 for Youth on Course. Courses that contributed included Poppy Ridge, Wente, Callippe Preserve, Metropolitan, Diablo Creek, Roddy Ranch, and Hiddenbrooke.

Four-man teams were paired with a local professional in a modified shamble format in which each team selected the best drive of all five members. Each individual then played his or her own ball from there through the completion of the hole.

Youth on Course participant Sebastian Crampton made the golf world buzz during U.S. Open Sectional Qualifying at TPC Harding Park Monday morning. The sixteen-year-old Pacific Grove resident had a share of the 18-hole lead after his first round 6-under 66. Crampton’s second round of 1-over 73 put him one stroke away from potential qualification. Instead, he sits as second alternate for the U.S. Open field.
