Costa Mesa's Jake Knapp can add a championship to his resume in a summer where catching a breath between tournaments seems like a rich reward. Knapp crowned his summer thus far with a tie for the top spot in the Toyota Tour Cup's boys' division at Santa Ana Country Club Tuesday.
Knapp, who will be a senior at Estancia High this fall, and Jonathan Sanders of Chatsworth each shot 10-under-par for 54 holes. Knapp won with a birdie on the second playoff hole, capping rounds of 67-70-69. He shot 67 and 70 on Monday.
"I've been playing a lot and haven't been playing terrible," Knapp said by phone after his round Monday. "There's always a good tournament every week. But I really don't want to get burned out."
Knapp made room for fun by going to the Orange County Fair and said he might return, just so it's not all golf all the time.
