FROM STAFF REPORTS
The San Diego County Junior Golf Association, respected for pioneering junior golf programs since 1952, is committed to enriching the lives of youth through the game of golf.
Over the decades, the association has helped influence the lives of thousands of San Diegans with later success as business and civic leaders, parents, and individual citizens.
That includes current East County youth.
Jamul’s Shea Lague captured the boys championship division at the Craig Stadler annual junior event Aug. 3-4 in the 36-hole championship division at the Twin Oaks Golf Club with a 9-under-par score of 135 and four shot win over Rancho Santa Margarita’s Zander Grant.
Lague, who be a senior at Steele Canyon High School, posted scores of 67-68 for the win. He made 13 birdies to win his first event this year. His previous best finish was a tie for fifth place at the Sean O’Hair Heritage event.
