Martin fired a 6-under par 64 on Sunday and ran away with the title at a windy Santa Barbara Golf Club. The Cal Poly golfer from Arroyo Grande finished at 7-under 203 and won by five shots.

Second-round leader Jake Ledbetter played through a back injury he suffered early in the final round, shot a 72 and finished in a tie for second place with San Marcos golfer Sam Metzger at 2-under 208. Brian Helton was fourth at 1-under 209 while Nathan Clark, Preston Smith, Sage Casaga and Tyler Ley shared fifth place at even-par 210.

Martin, who was three shots back entering the final round of the 54-hole event,  said he was playing in his first tournament in six months after suffering a broken hand. His 64 was the lowest round of the tournament.

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!
