Bennett Reichard fired a 1-under par 70 and Chad Visser parred his last six holes, leading San Marcos to a 387-398 win over Dos Pueblos to complete a undefeated dual match season in the Channel League.

It's the third straight league championship for the Royals and the second with an 8-0 record.

Reichard finished strong, shooting 5-under in windy conditions on his last 10 holes to earn medalist honors.

"Bennett's back nine was amazing," San Marcos coach Aaron Solis said. "He made up seven strokes on his opposing partner on the back nine. Awesome"

Andres Fairbairn led the Chargers (6-2) with a 75.

"It was a very close match at the turn, but we won it as a team on the back 9," Solis said. "It was great to see the guys finish well. DP is a great team and the guys have friends on both sides, but we didn't want to share the league title."

Solis noted that Visser's steady play down the stretch was crucial to the win. He was the No. 2 scorer for San Marcos with a 77.

"That was huge," he said. "Very windy conditions today. Not as windy as Monday, but it still had an effect on the match.

The Royals and Chargers will next play in the two-day, 36-hole Channel League Individual Tournament on Monday and Tuesday at Soule Park in Ojai

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!
