five years, and a record sixth championship overall with a 20-over 380. Central Catholic finished two shots back to take second and qualify for its first State Championship, and Dublin finished third at 384 to advance in the 12-team tournament. Last year’s San Francisco City cham-


Will Brueckner pion, Will Brueckner of Alcalanes, won the in-

70 / NCGA.ORG / SUMMER 2014 Xander Schauffele


State senior Xander Schauffele withstood a barrage of seven birdies in the final 18 holes to knock off household name Beau Hossler 2-up in the 36-hole final at Omni La Costa to win his first California State Amateur title. “I’m really excit-


ed,” said Schauffele, who was named to the PING All-West Region Team this past season. “We


were both playing so well. It just felt like we were matching each other shot for shot.” Schauffele qualified as the No. 8 seed, while Hossler


was the No. 2 seed. Hossler burst onto the national scene as a 17-year-old during the 2012 U.S. Open at The Olympic Club. He briefly held the lead during the second round, and was only four strokes back entering the final round. But Schauffele, who is the No. 44 amateur in


the world, has some championship pedigree, too. Schauffele was the co-medalist at the State Am last year, earning him a spot on the H. Chandler Egan Trophy. Schauffele was knocked out in the first round, but he went all the way this year to add his name to the Edward B. Tufts Trophy alongside past champions Ken Venturi, Johnny Miller and Mark O’Meara. The final match was a heck of a duel, with Hossler


and Schauffele each bagging seven birdies the final 18 holes. Hossler was 2-down entering the 30th hole, but despite three birdies in the next five holes, Schauffele still maintained a 1-up lead. Schauffele parred the final two holes to close out the match. Fairfield’s Jason Anthony was medalist with rounds


of 69-71, but he fell to No.16 Sidney Wolf 2-and-1 in the Round of 16. In the first round of match play, Anthony knocked


out defending champion and No. 32 seed Cory McElyea of Santa Cruz on the 20th hole. The SCGA won the North/South Challenge by five


to earn the Roger Lapham Trophy. The NCGA team was represented by Matt Hansen, Dale Smith, Corey Pereira, Shotaro Ban, Austin Roberts and McElyea.
