Wiebe Wins SCPGA National Car Rental Assistant Championship

GLENDORA – Gunner Wiebe of Bel-Air Country Club wins the 2019 National Car Rental Southern California Assistant PGA Professional Championship with a 36-hole total of three-under par, 141 at Glendora Country Club.

Posting an opening round score of one-under par 71, Wiebe kicked things into high gear on the timely layout at Glendora Country Club during his second round. Narrow fairways protected with bold tree lines created some shot shaping upon which Wiebe thrived, battling through the afternoon heat to post two-under par in his second round with five birdies on the card to claim the title.

“The course played really tough in the afternoon when the wind got up… I kind of had to reset a little, and then just grinded all day,” said Gunner after his victory.

The top four finishers have earned berth into the 2019 National Car Rental Assistant PGA Professional Championship to be held November 14-17 at PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Florida.
