Sports briefs: Hansen reaches semis at amateur tournament

From page B8 | June 23, 2013 |

PEBBLE BEACH — UC Davis golf standout Matt Hansen is believed to have accomplished a program first on Friday, advancing all to way to semifinals of the 102nd California State Amateur Championship.

Playing at Monterey Penninsula Country Club, Hansen beat UCLA’s Jonathan Garrick, 4 and 2, to reach the semis, where he fell to Bryson Dechambeau of Clovis, 5 and 4.

Garrick, who finished second for UCLA at the NCAA Tempe Regional in May, led the 24th-seeded Hansen 1-up through six holes before the Aggie squared the match on the seventh hole. Garrick regained the lead heading to the back nine but Hansen went on a tear beginning on No. 11, winning five of six holes to secure the win. He had four birdies in that run.

Hansen earlier beat Sean Crocker and Sam Johnston by identical 3-and-1 scores to secure his spot in the quarterfinals against Garrick. He earned his berth in the 32-player match play portion of the event by shooting rounds of 72 and 74 in stroke play earlier this week, tying for 23rd at 6-over.

In his semifinal loss to Dechambeau, Hansen birdied the first hole to take the initial lead before the Conference USA Freshman of the Year captured four of the next five to take the advantage for good. Hansen scored birdies on the eighth and 13th holes but halved each with the SMU freshman.

Meet the new Aggie football coach

The Cal Aggie Alumni Association’s Davis Alumni Network and UC Davis Athletics will host a reception with new football coach Ron Gould from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Bruce Edwards Club Room at Aggie Stadium.

The cost is $15 for Alumni Network members, and $20 for nonmembers and walk-ins. Parking is free on campus after 5 p.m.

Participants will get a preview of the upcoming season, a brief tour of the stadium and the opportunity to taste wines from UC Davis alumni winemakers.
