Ojai native Jeff Coburn captured his second straight Southern California Golf Association Public Links Championship, finishing 12-under-par and seven strokes ahead of his closest competitor after three days at the River Ridge Golf Course in Oxnard Aug. 22 through 24.
“I actually had never played the new course, but I remembered the old course,” Coburn said. “It was a pretty good track. It was windy as usual, but the greens are great there, and I enjoyed it.”
