John Ruiz
RIVERSIDE — When Camarillo High senior Johnny Ruiz struggles with his putting, it’s usually because he’s lifting his head prior to stroking the ball.

After missing a short birdie putt in Monday’s CIF-Southern Section Individuals at Victoria Golf Club, Ruiz told himself to keep his head down the rest of the round.

It didn’t take long for his pep talk to pay dividends.

After hitting a big drive on the par-4, 10th hole, Ruiz knocked his approach shot 7feet from the pin. With his head still, Ruiz made the putt for birdie, opening up a floodgate of success.
