Hansen ties tournament record in Sacramento

Morro Bay High grad and current UC Davis golfer Matt Hansen tied the tournament record by shooting 199 to win the California State Fair men’s amateur championship Monday at MacKenzie Golf Course in Sacramento.

Hansen birdied the 18th hole to edge Jake Johnson by a stroke. Hansen finished at 17 under and tied the mark set by Robert Hamilton in 2001.

Hansen trailed by seven strokes after the first round when Johnson opened the tournament with a course record 12-under 60. But Hansen carded 66 in the final two rounds to rally for the victory.

Past winners of the event include Ken Venturi, Al Geiberger and Kevin Sutherland.
