San Marcos and Long Beach Wilson, two of the most decorated boys golf programs in CIF-Southern Section history, competed in match-play format at La Cumbre Country Club on Wednesday.

Wilson won the team competition 5-1, taking four individual matches, with two others finishing in draws, which were worth a 1/2 point each. Chad Visser and Bennett Reichard squared their matches to give the Royals their one point. Sam Metzger lost 3 and 2; Bryce Quezada fell 2 and 1; Hayden Schoenfelder lost 2 and 1 and Braden Curtis was beaten 7 and 5.

"This was a great experience for the boys in a different type of pressure and strategy match that will benefit us as we start postseason next week," San Marcos coach Aaron Solis said.

Long Beach has the most CIF-SS golf championships and San Marcos is second.

Coach Evans (Wilson coach) and I like to schedule each other late in the season to prepare for the postseason. Wilson is one of the best teams in Southern Section, the boys on both sides respect and enjoy playing against each other. I always hate losing to any team named the Bruins, but this match has only positives out of it. I was especially pleased with Chad today. He was 2 down with 3 holes to play and was able to tie the match. "

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!
