The Southern California PGA returned to the Saticoy Country Club for the first TPS series of the season on March 30, 2015. The golf course played incredibly difficult, and many of the participants commented on the challenge of the greens. After the morning round, Raj Samara of Friendly Hills Country Club, held a one shot lead by shooting an impressive two under round par round of 70. However, lurking in second was Chi Choi, PGA of Monterey Park GC with a 71. The afternoon rounds played even tougher, but the calm Chi Choi fired a 75 to take the title by one over South Hills Kyle Mendoza. Congratulations to Chi Choi on the TPS Series victory.
In addition, the TPS Series served as the first match play qualifier in which the top five players earned a spot in the SCPGA Match Play Championship at Sandpiper GC in July. These five were:
Chi Choi (PGA, Monterey Park G.C.), Ben Krug (PGA, Angeles National G.C.), Steve Holmes (PGA, Westlake Village G.C.), Ron Skayhan (PGA, Hillcrest C.C.), and Paul Dietsche (PGA, Redlands C.C.)
Thank you to the sponsors Tour Lock and Pepsi, as well as the Saticoy Country Club for their gracious hospitality.
