The UC Davis men’s golf team protected its home course in a big way, winning the El Macero Classic with three Aggies in the top six of the individual standings following Sunday’s final round.

Medalist Matt Hansen led the way for UCD, shooting a 3-under 69 to pick up his second career victory. Aggie Nicolas Noya, a redshirt freshman playing in just his third tournament, carded a final-round 71 and tied for sixth place along with teammate Luke Vivolo. Both were just 2-over for UCD, which posted a 16-shot team win.

Rounding out the Aggie lineup were Joshua Granger, who tied for 13th at 6-over, and El Macero’s own Ben Corfee, who tied for 21st at 8-over.

“I’ve been really proud of our guys all week,” said Aggie coach Cy Williams. “Everybody contributed big. Everybody was under par (in at least one round) and with the conditions out here, we were the only team to break par.”

UCD built an 18-stroke lead over Big West Conference rival Cal State Fullerton after Saturday’s second round and then shot a 6-over 294 team score on Sunday to finish at 8-under 856. The Titans (+8) were in second.

Hansen earned his first career win at the 2011 NCAA Southwest Regional. He has two second-place finishes, first at the SCVB Pacific Invitational in November and the other at the Bandon Dunes Championship last month in Oregon.

“I’m so happy for him,” Williams said. “He’s been close a lot and it’s good to see him get a win.”

Hansen had a bogey-free round on Sunday, starting his day with a birdie on the par-4 first hole and then adding two more on the par-5 fifth and 15th holes. It was his second straight 69.

Corfee shot a 75 on Sunday, but finished strong with eight pars and one birdie in the back nine.

Aggie players Mike Brockington (38th place), Jonny Baxter (57th) and Will Scarlett (61st) each played the tournament as individuals in the first UCD event at El Macero Country Club since 2004.

The tournament title was the first for the Aggies since winning the Big West Championship in 2012. UCD will look to reclaim the conference banner when it opens play in the championship tournament in San Jacinto, beginning on Sunday.
