The Southern Section has produced some pretty good professional golfers, such as Tiger Woods and Collin Morikawa, but even they would be impressed with what junior Matthew Robles of Warren accomplished Thursday at the Southern Section individual final.

Robles shot a 10-under 62, setting a course record at River Ridge Golf Course, to win the championship.

“He was amazing,” coach Josh Buell said.

Robles twice made chip-ins, one for an eagle and another for a birdie on the 18th hole.

Oaks Christian, Loyola, Tesoro and Santa Margarita were the team qualifiers to move on for team competition.

Loyola freshman Teddy Turo shot 65.

Robles is committed to Santa Clara. His 62 was no fluke. He shot 63 at his league finals.
