This was Mark's second win in the San Clemente Championship having been the winner in 2016.
Dan Sullivan, 2014 San Clemente City Champ and 2017 S.C.G.A. Mid-Amateur Champion and, 2017 U.S. Mid-Amateur Semi-Finalist was the leader after Saturday's round with a outstanding 64. Taylor Casper was in 2nd place with 66 while Mark was tied for 3rd with Nick Cantlay at 67. These four made up the last foursome on Sunday.
Mark got off to a blistering 2nd round going 4 under in the first 6 holes. He led most of the way until the 16th hole where Dan birdied to tie. Mark had a difficult 6-foot breaking putt for birdie on 18 and he canned it for the win.
Sapo King-Ramos, 17, won the Junior title with an even par 144 while
Greg Schweitzer won the Senior title also even par 144.
