San Marcos Beats Arroyo Grande by 10 Strokes at Windy Sandpiper

San Marcos withstood heavy winds on the first 14 holes at Sandpiper Golf Course and managed to score a 407 to win its season-opening boys golf match by 10 shots over Arroyo Grande.

San Marcos coach Aaron Solis said the wind was blowing 20-30 mph for the first 14 holes then calmed to about 5 mph for the last four holes.

Par is 72 at Sandpiper, but in reality it played to a par 75 or 76 today," he said. "We want to score better than we did today and will continue to work hard, but this is a good starting point considering the conditions today."

Chad Visser fired a team-low 76 to finish a stroke behind medalist Jack Avrit of Arroyo Grande.  Sam Metzger shot 77 for the Royals.

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!
