Felipe wins Match Play

The team started a match play tournament at the end of the fall season for some intra-squad competition. After a few days of stroke play for seeding, the tournament began but the championship match wasn't completed until last week. First-year Felipe Benalcazar beat ELG 2 and 1, beat Kalen 1 up and beat TY 2 and 1 in the championship match.

Championship Synopsis:
After Felipe got out to a quick start winning the first four holes, TY won 5 and 7 to tighten the match. Felipe birdied 8 to go three up and matched TY's birdie on 9 to keep the lead. TY won the 10th, but Felipe got up and down on the bunker of 11 for the halve and match. (12 hole match due to evening classes)
