Dan Mezich of Del Mar, Mark Upchurch of Rancho Penasquitos, Cortie Dove of Ramona and Steve Jones of Tempe, Ariz., finished in first at the National Kidney Foundation Cadillac Golf Classic National Finals. The team shot rounds of 60-58-59 for a 39-under-par total in the 54-hole, four-person scramble tournament played Jan. 17-19 at The Links at Spanish Bay, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and the Pebble Beach Golf Links at the Pebble Beach Resorts in Pebble Beach, Calif.   The team bested a field of 50 amateur golf teams from across the country.

The foursome qualified for the Pebble Beach finals by finishing third place at the Cadillac Golf Classic held last year at Whirlwind Golf Club. They faced off against 50 other amateur golf teams from across the country over the weekend. Teams played the fabled fairways and signature holes of the Monterey Peninsula: Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and The Links at Spanish Bay in the four-person, scramble format event.
