Todays Spotlight is on High School Graduate CG Facer

CG Facer, a recent Urbana High graduate, won the Urbana Country Club championship earlier this month, and in 36 holes on Sunday at his home course, Facer followed up his 3-under 69 with a 76 to hold off a back-nine surge from Christian Khachaturian to win the 85th Twin City championship.


Facer’s success today didn’t just happen, He worked at it. And then worked at it some more. Facer is on the range or the practice greens, whenever the weather allows;  working on imporoving his game, with his dad. As the sun sets, CG always finds one more thing to work out, or challenges Dad to a putting contest.


CG was focused all day on the course last Sunday, his "poker face" didn’t change until his par putt on the 18th hole dropped, and  then he cracked his first smile.CG will be a freshman at Brigham Young this fall on an academic scholarship in the school’s honors program and he will attempt to join the Cougars’ golf team as a walk on. CG earned a tough victory on Sunday. He entered the final 18 holes with a 6-shot lead on four-time champion Tim Hoss Jr. and 7 on 16-year-old Christian Khachaturian.

Congratulations CG Facer!
