Sam Metzger Carries San Marcos Past Ventura

Sam Metzger fired a 3-under par 69, and San Marcos shot a season-low 365 against Ventura's 497 in a Channel League golf match at Olivas Links on Thursday.

Three Royals had career bests or tied for best rounds in the match. Blake Bornand (77) and Braden Curtis (79) fired career bests while Bryce Quezada tied a career best with a 75.

Sam Metzger shot 5-under par for the week (2 under on Tuesday).

"We played pretty good golf today and it showed being 5 over as a team," San Marcos coach Aaron Solis said. "Scary thing is we know we still left some shots out there as three players had never seen the course before. But as good as this score is, it is just one score. We have to continue to have efficient, motivated practices to continue to improve so these types of scores can be more consistent."

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!
