JUSTIN WILLIAMS STEPS DOWN AS POPPY HILLS HEAD PRO


JUSTIN WILLIAMS, the head pro at Poppy Hills for the past fi ve years, moved on to a new opportunity more than 2,000 miles away in Hawaii. He accepted an assistant pro position at


Ko Olina Golf Club on the island of Oahu. In 2010 Williams


was named the PGA Northern California Section’s golf professional of the year for the Monterey Bay Area Chapter. “We will miss Justin greatly,” said NCGA CEO/Executive Director Lyn Nelson. “He has been a team player, a dedicated and friendly face that has represented the NCGA, Poppy Hills and the PGA so very well.”

NCGA MEMBERS FARE WELL IN USGA EVENTS For the second year in a row an NCGA member cap-


tured medalist honors at the U.S. Amateur. Danville’s GREGOR MAIN scorched Erin Hills and Blue Mound GCC during the fi rst two days, posting a 10-under score of 132 to earn the overall top seed. However, similar to what happened to Fairfi eld’s Jeff Wilson’s medalist cachet last year, Main bowed out in the fi rst round of match play. Other NCGA players Bryson Dechambeau, Jonathan Garrick and Ben Geyer qualifi ed for the match play portion of the event, with Geyer making it the furthest to the round of 16. The success of NCGA members at the 111th


U.S. Amateur came on the heels of a successful showing at the 86th U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship by Clovis resident DEREK ERNST. The late June-early July event saw Ernst make it all the way to the fi nals, losing the champion- ship match in 37 holes to Corbin Mills of South Carolina at Bandon Dunes’ Old Macdonald course.
