The Santa Rita High grad, who played at Washington State, reached the 18th hole of the oft-unfriendly, desert course at 8-under par. He hit his second shot on the par-5 finishing hole to 35 feet. “I knew I had to make it for the record,” he said. And he did. Witz’s 32-30—62 remains a record at the east-side facility.
