Bonner helps NorCal capture America’s Cup

Ripon High standout golfer Andrew Bonner finished 3-over to help a team of Northern Californians take the Junior America’s Cup last week.

Andrew Bonner’s phenomenal summer run continued last week with an outstanding effort in the 39th annual Junior America’s Cup at Hiwan Golf Club in Evergreen, Colo.

The Ripon resident helped a team of Northern California golfers capture the team title on Friday, as they edged out their Southern California rivals 640-652 in the three-day stroke-play event. The California teams led after day 1 with mirroring 210 scores. Seventeen teams from the western United States competed, including two from Canada — Alberta and British Columbia.

Bonner surely did his part for Team NorCal. He shot 71-70-72 on the par-70 course for a three-day total of 213 — good for a two-way share of second place team teammate Jonathon De Los Reyes.

Jonah Texeira of San Diego topped the field (70-69-72—211). Northern California’s Bryson DeChambeau also made the top-five, taking fourth (72-73-69—214).

Bonner still has left work to do over the summer before entering his junior year at Ripon High.

Next Monday, he will compete in the California Boys state Championship North/South Cup in San Jacinto, then he will return to team competition Aug. 12-14 for the Hogan Cup in Portland, Ore.

Bonner is currently ranked fourth among 14-17-year-old boys in the Junior Golf Association of Northern California.
