LA QUINTA — Sparked by a 4-under 67 from Ben Corfee and a 70 from Luke Vivolo, the UC Davis men’s golf team saved its best performance for last, shooting a 5-under 279 in Wednesday’s final round of The Prestige at PGA WEST on Wednesday at the Greg Norman Course.

The Aggies, who co-hosted the event with Stanford, moved up one spot on the day to finish 10th in the loaded field that included eight top-50 teams and the University of Stirling from Scotland.

Matt Hansen, Jonny Baxter and Mike Brockington each added 71s for UCD, helping the locals to a 14-shot improvement over their second-round score.

Hansen finished tied for 12th in the final player standings at 2-under while Corfee, from El Macero, and Baxter tied for 28th at 2-over. Vivolo tied for 56th with a 10-over total and Brockington was 66th at 15-over.

Playing as individuals, Aggies Joshua Granger (48th at 6-over) and Nicolas Noya (64th at 14-over) shot 71 and 74, respectively on Wednesday.

The No. 11 Cardinal won the tournament with a 21-under total of 831. UCD carded an 11-over 863.

Corfee, who had a 68 in Monday’s first round before struggling to an 80 in the second, rebounded strongly in the last round, using a span of three birdies in four holes to help him post the best Aggie score of the tourney.
