As the rain-delayed BMW Championship finished up on Monday, Davis High graduate Nick Watney did all he needed to do and more to earn a spot in next weekend’s Tour Championship.

By shooting a 7-under 64 on Monday — the lowest round of the day — Watney ended up in second place, just two shots back of BMW champ Zach Johnson.

“The guys ahead of me were ahead of me for a reason — they’ve been playing well all year,” said Watney, who was tied for the lead through 15 holes Monday. “Luckily for me, I kind of pulled everything together.”

The performance earned the former Blue Devil, 1,500 FedEx Cup points, enough to move him into 12th in the standings. The top 30 players in those FedEx rankings will compete for the $10 million Tour Championship beginning Thursday at East Lake Golf Course in Atlanta.

UCD men’s golf

Aggies Mike Brockington and Matt Hansen combined for 10 birdies on the back side of Gold Mountain Golf Club’s Olympic Course during Monday’s second round, shooting 3-under 69 and 2-under 70, respectively, and helping UCD end the day in 10th place.

The performance helped the Aggies shave eight shots off its first-round score of 10-over 298 and fire 290 in the second, giving them a 12-over 588 overall total.

Hansen, who shot a 73 in the morning round, was tied for 15th at even par while Brockington, who carded a 77 in the first round, was tied for 24th. He’s tied with teammate Jonny Baxter, who had rounds of 72 and 74 and was at 2-over. Luke Vivolo had matching 76s and was tied for 54th at 8-over and Josh Granger was tied for 69th at 12-over after shooting 77 and 79.

UCD was scheduled to play the event’s final round on Tuesday.

UCD men’s soccer

Junior forward Matt Sheldon scored just five minutes into the contest and the Aggie defense helped the goal stand up for a 1-0 win over San Francisco on Sunday at Aggie Soccer Field.

Sheldon found his opportunity when he and teammate Elliott Hord pressured the back line of USF (3-2-1), which resulted in a stray ball at Sheldon’s feet near the top of the penalty box. The Portland, Ore., native promptly blasted a shot straight through the center of the frame to give UCD (3-3) all it needed.

Omar Zeenni finished with three saves for the Aggies, who play next on Friday at San Diego.

UCD women’s soccer

Host Utah Valley tallied a pair of goals in the first 21 minutes and, despite a second-half Aggie goal by Lexi Poppoff, the Wolverines held off UCD, 2-1, on Sunday at Clyde Field.

The Aggies (2-4-1) had twice as many overall shots (18-9) but UVU (2-5-0) held a 6-4 advantage on shots on goal.

Trailing 2-0 after the break, UCD got back into the game in the 49th minute when Poppoff put a loose ball into the net for her first goal of the season.

UCD is at the Jack in the Box Classic this weekend in Albuquerque, N.M, facing facing Texas Tech on Friday and host New Mexico on Sunday.

UCD field hockey

Stephie Sabraw scored less than five minutes into the game to give the Aggies an early lead but host Michigan answered with six straight goals to post a 6-1 victory on Sunday at Phyllis Ocker Field.

The Wolverines (3-3) held decisive edges over UCD (1-4) in both shots (34-5) and penalty corners (19-1).

Despite those disparities, however, it was the Aggies who scored just 4:41 into the contest when Sabraw took a hard pass from Agustina Singh and redirected the ball into the net for her second goal of the season.

UCD kept the lead for nearly 13 minutes before Michigan’s Jaime Diaz tipped a shot in from the left side on a penalty corner.
