Dudeck, The Master’s Sweep Golden State Conference Championships

Jack Dudeck of the Master’s College in Santa Clarita captured the Golden State Conference Championship for the second straight season and led the Mustangs to the team title by nine strokes over Ottawa University of Arizona at La Purisima Golf Club in Lompoc.

The Masters posted a score of 297-298-294—899, 25-under-par, to claim its first GSCA Championship since 2017 to and earn a berth in the NAIA Men’s National Championships.

“Before we teed off this morning, I told the guys that it was our time,” Master’s Coach Jacob Hicks said. “From the beginning of this week in the practice round, I just knew the guys were locked in.

“We’ve been preparing so hard for this and I’m just praising God for allowing us to come through in the clutch, and really see some of our hard work pay off. He’s the one who has to bless your efforts and he’s been so kind to us this week.”

Ottawa University of Arizona was second at 302-301-297—900, followed by Menlo at 310-312-308—930 and Arizona Christian at 308-320-318—946.

Hope International was fifth at 324-336-323—983, followed by Westmont at 345-335-322—1002, Vanguard University at 334-336-334—1004, and William Jessup University at 354-354-338—1046.

Dudeck, a senior from West Ranch High School in Stevenson Ranch, claimed his third victory of the season and sixth of his career, with a score of 73-76-71—220, 4-over.

“I really wanted it for the team more than myself because I know how much fun I had last year,” said Dudeck, who was the only player for the Mustangs to compete in the NAIA Men’s National Championships last season.

“One of the reasons I got this sweatshirt (from the NAIA tournament) last year was to wear it around the team to make sure they saw it and I could tell them how fun it was, so that they had that motivation to keep going and to keep pushing.

“Our goal was to win the conference championship and get to the national championship. I wanted it to motivate the team and I think it did its job.”

Joshua Kehl of the Masters shot 75-72-76—223 to tie for second with Hector Barnetche of Ottawa, who totaled 77-73-73—223, while Nicolas-Guy Landry of Menlo was fourth at 75-73-76—224, followed by Colby Watkins of Ottawa, who finished at 77-76-72—225.

Dondon Bumacod of the Master’s carded a score of 76-75-75—226 to tie for sixth with Byron Evans of Ottawa, who wound up at 75-75-76—226, while Eric Martin of the Masters shot 79-78-71—228 to tie for eighth with Mason Domecq of Ottawa, who finished at 73-79-76—228, while Luke Brueckner of the Master’s totaled 81-75-73-229—229 to tie for 10th with Connor Scissons of Arizona Christian, who came in at 71-78-80—229.

Andy Knight led Westmont College in a tie for 19th at 84-78-74—236, Ben Bernard of Hope International tied for 21st at 82-82-76—240, and Dante Fornaro of Vanguard tied for 24th at 84-82-81—247.
