Bakersfield College men’s golfer Jeremy Choi was expected to go to state but did not qualify in the Southern California Championships on May 4.

Choi shot a 77 in the first round and an 81 in the second round totaling 158. That score was not enough to push him into the state level competition.

“It’s OK, it was a good season,” said Choi.

Choi was the only player on his team to make it to the SoCal Championships this season.

In order to make it to the SoCal Championships, Choi had to qualify in the Western State Conference finals at Rancho Vista Golf Club in Palmdale.

Choi scored a 70 in round one and a 78 in round two. He led the team as usual as the team tallied up a two-round total of 809 shots and took eighth place.

College of the Canyons placed first in the tournament with a two-round team score of 726.

Other BC men’s golf scores: Jerran Walter (83-82), Bowdey Carrol (80-85), Jarrett Buntley (86-79), and Tal Pruett (84-84).
