Bennett Reichard shot a career-best 6-under par 64 to lead three San Marcos golfers to under-par rounds in a 355-400 Channel League win over Ventura at Buenaventura Golf Club on Tuesday.

Reichard had seven birdies and only one bogey in his round.

"It was fun to watch Bennett play so well from afar and I'm proud of him making strides with his mental game," said San Marcos coach Aaron Solis.

Chad Visser shot his best round with a 4-under 66, which included two eagles. Sam Metzger fired a 1-under 69.

"It was great to have three players under par today and to be only 5-over par as a team, and we know we can still do better," Solis said. "Chad had two eagles today, which always helps for a great round.

"We have to continue to focus each round, each hole, each shot as we still play a very good DP team in a couple of weeks, and a very good Santa Barbara team on Thursday at Muni. All the kids from both teams know Muni so well, so it is going to be a fun, shootout type of match."

San Marcos is 5-0 in league and Ventura is 1-4.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
