SAN RAMON, Calif. – Cal State San Marcos junior Jamie Jacob vaulted 14 spots in the final round to earn a runner-up finish and nab CCAA Golfer of the Week for Oct. 17-23. This marks Jacob’s fifth career weekly honor.
Hailing from Encinitas, Jacob fired a 3-under 143 (75-68) at the Skyhawk Women’s Fall Intercollegiate to tie for second on the individual leaderboard, just one stroke behind the individual medalist. Her Day-2 68 stood as the tournament’s low round which featured four birdies and an eagle on the Par 5 10th hole at the UNM Championship Course.
Jacob’s score helped the Cougars to fourth in the team standings in their penultimate fall tournament. Next, Cal State San Marcos plays host in the CSUSM Fall Classic Oct. 29-30 before breaking for the winter.
