On Monday March 26, Laguna played in the Estancia Golf Tournament at Costa Mesa Country Club. This is a modified Stableford scoring tournament where each high school brings four players. Each player plays his own ball and the team is awarded 1 point for a par, 3 points for a birdie, 5 points for an eagle and 10 points for a hole in one or double eagle. Twenty-one high school teams participated.
Laguna was represented by Kyle Sharp, Chase Gioffredi, Gus Morck and Ben Sharp. They scored a tournament-setting record 83 points, including 5 points on the last hole, which moved them in front of Newport Harbor. Both Kyle Sharp and Gus Morck each won a “closest to the hole” contest on two of the par 3 holes. All the players shot low rounds playing their own ball over 18 holes. Kyle Sharp shot a career low 4 under 68 and Gus Morck shot a career low four over 76. Chase Gioffredi shot 1 over 73 and Ben Sharp shot 3 over 75.
