Hansen sits 36th in Trans-Mississippi golf event

Former Morro Bay High golf standout and Los Osos resident Matt Hansen was tied for 36th Wednesday after two rounds at the 107th Trans-Mississippi Championship at Denver Country Club.

Hansen, who recently signed a letter of intent to play collegiate golf at UC Davis, has carded a 5-over 145 through two rounds, 11 strokes behind Virginia’s Amory Davis and Cal’s Max Homa, who are tied for the lead at 6-under 134.

Hansen is playing against a competitive field with current collegiate golfers allowed to play in the tournament for the first time in its history.
