CHOI IS 2012 NATIONAL CAR RENTAL SCPGA ASSISTANT CHAMPION
Mission Viejo Country Club in Mission Viejo, CA hosted the 2012 National Car Rental SCPGA Assistant Championship presented by COBRA PUMA GOLF. The traditionally difficult layout held true to form as the players negotiated the beautiful 6900 yard par 71 course. Chi Choi of La Mirada Golf Course came from behind to overtake first round leader Ross Marcano, PGA of Barona Creek and post 143 (+1). Choi ended up at the top one shot ahead of Nathaniel Williams of The Plantation Golf Club (144). There were five players from the field advancing to the National Car Rental PGA Assistant Championship presented by COBRA PUMA GOLF in November. Along with Choi and Williams, Tom Gardner, PGA (145) of Bel-Air Country Club, Dean Tonneslan (147) of La Jolla Country Club and Dave Magdziasz (148) of La Quinta Resort & Country Club, who outlasted two others in a two hole playoff for the fifth and final spot, advanced. Many thanks to COBRA PUMA GOLF and their staff representatives for all of their fantastic support! Mission Viejo Country Club, all of it’s members, PGA Head Professional Matt Viguerie, and the entire staff were integral to such a tremendous tournament and we cannot thank all of them enough for their support!
