WAIKOLOA, Hawaii — Junior Ben Corfee opened his day with a bogey, but then turned it around the rest of the way to finish with a 2-under 70 and lead the UC Davis men’s golf team on Thursday in the first round of the Amer Ari Invitational at Waikoloa Kings’ Course.

Corfee, from El Macero, was in a tie for 32nd place after the first day of the tournament, which is showcasing some of best teams in the nation. Ten of the 20 teams competing this week are ranked in Golfstat’s top 40, including No. 11 Stanford, No. 2 Georgia Tech and No. 3 Oklahoma State, the first-day leader at 17-under 271.

The Aggie men were tied for 18th after shooting a 2-over 290 team score.

Luke Vivolo and Josh Granger each had rounds of 73 for UCD, while Matt Hansen finished with a 74 and Mike Brockington carded a 76.

Corfee’s bogey came on the par-4 first hole, but he gained that stroke back right away with a birdie on the par-5 second. He birdied the next par-5 that he saw (No. 4) and added two more birdies on the back, including the par-5 18th.

Vivolo had three birdies on his day, playing the front nine holes even and then going 1-over on the back nine. He birdied two of his final five holes, including the par-3 15th and also No. 18. Granger’s round of 73 featured four birdies and a final nine-hole stretch that he played at 2-under.

Hansen had a rough start, moving to five over after six holes, but then picked up birdies on the par-3 seventh and the par-4 ninth to give him momentum heading to the back. He had a steady final nine holes with eight pars and a birdie. Brockington was 5-over on the front half of the course, but bounced back to play the back nine at 1-under.

In Friday’s second round, which was set to begin at 9:30 a.m., the Aggies are grouped with Oregon State, Colorado and Cal State Monterey Bay.

Blue Devil football meeting

New Davis High football coach John Wiley will lay out plans for the upcoming year at a player-parents meeting on Monday at 7 p.m. in the DHS Library.

“This will be a great opportunity to get to know him and ask any questions you might have,” says DHS Football Backers President Rich Riffle. “We (also) will introduce new board members.”
