Christian Rajcic is one of the best golfers in San Diego County, and last week he proved it.

Rajcic competed in the prestigious City Cup Invitational at Escondido Country Club against the best golfers in the county and blew away the field. The Ramona High School senior carded a 66 to lead the field by four strokes.

Going into the final round Rajcic had a four stroke lead over Justin Beck and Justin Hickey of La Costa Canyon. Ironically the 66 is not Rajcic’s low round. He has shot a 65 on his home course, San Vicente Resort, which is a par 72 compared to Escondido Country Club par 70.

Rajcic came through in the clutch to share medalist honors with fellow Bulldog, Brandon Zane, and Tailin Song of Torrey Pines in the biggest victory in Bulldog golf history. Rajcic shot an even par 36 and holed an eagle chip from about 30 yards out on the sixth hole.

When asked about the victory, Rajcic said, “I was very excited but not shocked. We have a very good team and I knew if we all played well we could beat them.”

Rajcic started golfing at age 10 when his dad, Rojer, got him interested in the sport. He has a 3.5 grade point average and is planning on playing at The University of La Verne next year and to major in kinesiology.

For his efforts, Christian Rajcic is the Ramona Sentinel Athlete of the Week.
