SAN JOSE, Calif. – A trio of San José State men’s golf signees capped off their pre-Spartan careers in strong fashion this week.
Bryce Wortman from Klamath Falls, Ore. won his third state of Oregon high school championship on Tuesday. The Mazama high school senior repeated as the 4A boys golf state champion, having also won it in his freshman year.
Wortman, who signed a National Letter-of-Intent to compete for San José State men’s golf beginning in the 2016-17 academic year, shot a one-under 143 (71-72) at the par-72, 6453 yard Emerald Valley Golf Club in Creswell, Oregon.
The lefty finished his final round with birdies in four of the last six holes to win by four strokes as he was the lone player under-par for the championship.
On Monday, two future Spartans finished in the top-four at the California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA) men’s golf state championship.
Will Barnett from the College of the Canyons finished second, carding a pair of 73's to finish at two-over 146 at the par 72, 6716 yard Desert Island Golf & Country Club in Rancho Mirage, Calif.
Sean Talmadge from Chabot College, who played as an individual at the CCCAA state championship, finished fourth at four-over 148 (76-72).
