UCD’s Hansen named champ as Big West tourney ends early

SAN JACINTO — Winds forced the cancellation of the final round of the Big West Golf Championship — scheduled for Tuesday — leaving the UC Davis men in second place but giving Aggie senior Matt Hansen the individual title.

Winds up to 40 mph at The Country Club of Soboba Springs delayed the start of the final round by 90 minutes before eventually forcing its cancellation.

“The start was delayed until 9 a.m. and we observed the first 50 minutes of play and found that golf balls weren’t holding on the greens,” said Rob Halvaks, deputy commissioner of the Big West. “With no prediction of certainty of when the conditions would be playable, we met with the SCGA rules officials and determined canceling the final round was our only option.”

Second-day leader Cal State Fullerton was then declared the winner, earning the league’s automatic berth to the NCAA Championships. The defending champion Titans (2-over 578) led UCD (4-over 580) by just two strokes, but the Aggies will have to hope for an at-large bid to the NCAA finals.

“I think we’re very deserving for an at-large bid,” said UCD coach Cy Williams. “We’ll see what happens but I’m excited to hopefully advance.”

Hansen — who also won last week at the El Macero Classic — was at 8-under 136 through 36 holes to capture the Big West crown. His opening-round score of 5-under 65 on Sunday was particularly impressive. After following that up with a 69 on Sunday, Hansen took the title by five shots.

“That was an absolutely dominant performance,” Williams said. “I’m very proud what he’s done the last two weeks. He’s really put this team on his shoulders.”

Also for the Aggies, redshirt freshman Nicolas Noya tied for ninth at even-par — his second straight top-10 finish — El Macero’s Ben Corfee (6-over) tied for 22nd, Luke Vivolo (7-over) tied for 24th and Joshua Granger (8-over) tied for 32nd at 8 over.
