Zach Smith Leads UCSB Golfers to 2nd Place at Folino Invitational

Junior Zach Smith was one of just two players to shoot below par as he carded a 2-under 214 to lead UC Santa Barbara to a solid second-place finish at the Folino Invitational played at the Industry Hills Golf Club at Pacific Palms.

Smith played a consistent three rounds as he was 1-under in each of the first two rounds and then at even par in the final round. He finished five shots back of the individual medalist, Joe Fryer of Long Beach State who shot a 7-under par 209.

As a team, the Gauchos finished with a 10-over par 872, two shots behind the team champion, Long Beach State.  UC Irvine was third, 15 shots off the pace, Cal State Northridge came in fourth and Boise State was fifth.

In addition to Smith, the Gauchos were well represented in the tournament. Freshman Brett Bennett finished at 4-over par to tie for seventh-place while juniors Brandon Bauman and Willy Moffly each shot 5-over par to tie for 10th. Sophomore Nick Swanson tied for 31st at 15-over par.

UCSB returns to action at The Farms Collegiate Invitational in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., on Feb. 13-14, 2017.

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!
