One of just three veterans on the squad in 2012-13, Meth took home four top-10 finishes in his second year of action including a pair of top-5 finishes. During the year, Byron's top finish came at the Bandon Dunes Championship where he tied for third at -2. Despite finishing in 23rd at the Big West Championships, it was Byron's 50-foot eagle put during the playoff action that got pushed the Tigers' over the top for the conference title. For his play throughout the year, Meth earned all-conference honorable mention honors. Not to be left out of the fun over the summer of golf success, Meth etched his name atop the standings at the San Diego City Amateur Championship over the weekend to take home his first title of the summer. For the three-round tournament, Meth posted a -5, as he closed the final day of play with a -2 to stake his claim at the top. Meth would win the championship in a one-hole playoff over Bryan Shin after the two tied at 211 after 54-holes.
A top contributor for the Tigers as a freshman, Byron played in all but one of Pacific's tournaments in 2011-12 as he made his debut on Oct. 17 at the Alister MacKenzie Invitational. In his first season of play, Meth picked up a pair of top-5 finishes as the freshman grabbed a 4th place finish at the Fresno Lexus Classic (Mar. 5-6) and a 5th place finish at the Winchester Intercollegiate (April 20-22). At the Fresno Lexus Classic, Meth posted his first tournament score in the red as he tallied a -1, 215. On the year, Byron shot six round of par or better and picked up one round in the 60s when he fired off a 69 on the first day of play at the Big West Championships.
A graduate of Patick Henry HS in San Diego, Calif., Meth proved to be one of the top amateur golfers in the country during his prep career, not only in high school events but also on the amateur golf circuit. Showing off his talents against some of the world's best, Meth took home one of the biggest championships in his young career with a win at the Aaron Baddeley International Junior Championships during the summer of 2011. The victory gave him automatic exemptions into the Australian Open and the JBWere Masters, Australia's premier Championship tournaments. In addition to his championship at the junior world tournament, Meth took home four other junior amateur titles throughout his time in high school. On the high school links, Meth was a two-time Eastern League Player of the Year and three time team MVP and three-time first team all-league golfer during his three varsity seasons.
