Weaver takes tourney
Recent Clovis West High graduate Michael Weaver captured the ClubCorp Mission Hills Desert Junior in Rancho Mirage by shooting a 1-over 73 in Thursday's final round. Weaver finished the tournament at 7-under 206.
Weaver hit 45 of 54 greens during his first AJGA event.
"I put myself in good position all week to make some birdies," Weaver said. "Fortunately, I was hitting enough greens that I didn't have to rely on my mediocre chipping."
