Acalanes’ Will Brueckner wins San Francisco City Golf Championship

Will Brueckner won the Championship flight of the San Francisco City Golf Tournament. This is one the oldest tournaments in the world. Nothing but the best amateurs in California try to qualify for this flight in this tournament. Will qualified and played the last 3 weekends at Harding Park golf course playing match play and won all his matches. This is a huge accomplishment. I think the best ever by an Acalanes golfer and one of the best by any athlete from Acalanes.
