MARAUDER MEN'S GOLF TEAM STRUGGLES IN BAKERSFIELD

MARAUDER MEN'S GOLF TEAM STRUGGLES IN BAKERSFIELD

BAKERSFIELD - So far this season in three conference matches the Marauder men's golf team has consistently finished near the middle of the pack.

It has yet to have a breakout match.

In its third match on Monday hosted by Bakersfield College at the Stockdale Country Club, AVC finished sixth. In Western States Conference matches, AVC has finished sixth, fifth and sixth, usually flip flopping places with Allan Hancock College.

Mike Weis and Jonathan Hand each finished with a score of +8 (79) on the par 71 course. Michael Draper shot his best round of the season, finishing one stroke behind Weis and Hand. Matt Cheng of College of the Canyons had the low score of the day shooting even par (71).

"We didn't get the results we were hoping for today. With the pins tucked in difficult spots, scores were higher than average for this league. Collectively we need to focus on minimizing mistakes and play more consistent," AVC head coach Brad Hazard said. "Mike (Weis) was able to scramble for a 79 with only hitting one green in regulation. It was good to see Michael (Draper) have his best round of the season. He is capable of consistently scoring in the 70s. He just needs to gain some confidence."
The top finishers of the day were Santa Barbara City College (385), Ventura College (386), COC (389), Citrus College (390), Allan Hancock (404) and AVC (407). In three conference matches COC has won two and Santa Barbara one and also a second place and a third place. Ventura has a couple of second place finishes and Citrus has consistently remained in the fourth spot.
