The UC Davis men’s golf team placed second at the Winchester Classic this past weekend behind senior Tyler Raber’s sixth place finish in its final tournament before the Big West Conference Championships.
The Aggies shot an 873 total team score, a product of Raber’s 216 total and junior Jonny Baxter and freshman Ben Corfee’s 218 scores that tied them for eighth place. UC Davis also got a 17th and 30th place finish from juniors Matt Hansen and Matt Seramin, respectively, by scores of 222 and 227.
Corfee shot a two-under 70 on the first day, while Raber shot even pars every round to reach his total.
UC Davis came in second behind Cal State Fullerton, whose 868 score came from a clutch 286 total on the last round that boosted them over the Aggies, who put up a 295 in the final round.
The Aggies turn their eyes to the Big West Conference Championships, which will take place at the Country Club at Soboba Springs in San Jacinto, Calif beginning Sunday. UC Davis is seeking its third-straight conference title.
