Last year Fallbrook High School’s boys golf team missed the CIF playoffs by one stroke. This year the Warriors won their May 21 play-in match by 20 strokes.

The top eight seeds in each division receive automatic entry into the CIF tournament. The teams seeded 9th through 16th have a play-in match with the winners rounding out the CIF tournament field. Fallbrook was seeded 11th this year, giving the Warriors a home match against 14th-seeded Granite Hills.

Fallbrook advanced to the tournament with a 204-224 victory on the Pala Mesa course. Patrick Milton and Ian Mackenzie each had nine-hole rounds of 39 strokes while Jake Guy, Bobbie Sneller, and Christian Murphy each took 42 shots.

In addition to allowing the Warriors entry into the CIF tournament as a team, the win over Granite Hills gave Fallbrook a final overall season record of 12-9 in dual matches.

"I thought the team as a whole played well all year," said Fallbrook coach Steve Jorde. "I was really proud of our team this year."

The Warriors were 5-5 in Avocado West League competition which included matches against Carlsbad and La Costa Canyon. "It’s not a bad league record," Jorde said.

The CIF tournament on the Admiral Baker course in San Diego began May 27. The CIF tournament utilizes 18-hole rounds, and Fallbrook’s team score of 416 was not low enough for the Warriors to advance to the second day of the tournament.

The cut for individuals to advance to the second day was 78. Fallbrook’s low score was compiled by Milton, who required 80 strokes. Sneller had a score of 81, Mackenzie took 84 strokes, Guy completed the 18 holes in 85 shots, and Murphy had an 86-stroke round.

"That’s about how they were playing during the year,"

Jorde said.

Michael Edgar, who did not participate in the play-in or the CIF tournament, was the team’s only senior.

"We’ve got everybody back, so that’s a good thing," Jorde said.

The Warriors practiced on the Pala Mesa course as well as played their home matches there.

"The golf team appreciates everything that Pala Mesa does for our community," Jorde said.
