2016 Tournament Winner

Tournament Winner: Paul Broadhurst

Score: 204

Holes: 54

A member of the European Ryder Cup team in 1991 – the famed “War on the Shore” at Kiawah Island – Paul Broadhurst has rarely competed in the United States, making only five appearances stateside in a career that began in 1988. He won six times on the European Tour and earlier in 2016 won a major, the Senior British Open Championship, which earned him a spot with the PGA TOUR Champions and a ticket to Pebble Beach. This is Broadhurst’s first time playing in the tournament.

2016 Pro-Junior Team Winner

Tournament Winner: Michael Allen & Patrick Fernandez

Score: 197

Holes: 54

The Pro-Junior competition went to a scorecard tiebreaker, when two teams finished at 197, 18-under-par. The team of pro Michael Allen and Patrick Fernandez, 16, of The First Tee of Phoenix, were determined the winners, over pro Billy Andrade and Ross Funderburke, 15, of Roanoke, Va. Both teams shot 64 in the closing.

2016 Amateur Team Winner

Tournament Winner: Joe Huston & David Baker

Score: 178

Holes: 54

The amateur team competition produced “local champions.” Joe Huston, Executive Director of the NorCal Golf Association – whose headquarters is at Poppy Hills Golf course – and David Baker, a board member of the NCGA’s Youth On Course program, led wire-to-wire, finishing at 178, 37-under-par.

2015 Tournament Winner

Tournament Winner: Esteban Toledo

Score: 206

Holes: 54

Before playing on the PGA Tour, Esteban Toledo was a professional boxer, with a 16-1 record. Winning the “tournament” was somewhat unexpected, but Toledo cherished it, since his “second home” was in Northern California. Toledo’s final-round 69, 3-under-par at Pebble Beach Golf Links, gave him a 54-hole total of 206, 9-under-par overall, good enough to beat the legendary Tom Watson by one stroke.

2015 Pro-Junior Team Winner

Tournament Winner: Mark O'Meara & Jack Avrit

Score: 195

Holes: 54

In the Pro-Junior competition, a battle down the stretch was finally decided on the final hole when junior Jack Arvit, 16, of Arroyo Grande, Calif., and Hall of Fame pro partner Mark O’Meara made a birdie-4 to go 20-under for the tournament and win by one stroke. They shot 61 in the first round, followed by a pair of 67s. Jack Avrit represented The First Tee of Central Coast.

2015 Amateur Team Winner

Tournament Winner: Keith Woodward & Mark Van Buskirk

Score: 178

Holes: 54

The amateur team competition was just as close, won by the twosome of Keith Woodward and Mark Van Buskirk, at 37-under- par, good for a one-shot victory.
