SAN JACINTO, Calif. - Final round play of the Big West Conference Men's Golf Championship at The Country Club at Soboba Springs was cancelled due to high winds, shortening the tournament to 36-holes.
Long Beach State closes out the 2013-14 campaign in fourth place at the Big West Championship at 11-over-par 587 with sophomore Kevin Lee tying for fifth at 2-under 142.
Cal State Fullerton captured the conference championship and automatic berth into the NCAA Regionals with a 2-under 578, winning by two strokes over UC Davis (+4) in second and eight shots over UC Riverside (+10) in third.
Matt Hansen of UC Davis won individual medalist with a 8-under, winning by five shots over three players tied for second.
After many attempts to get the third and final round completed, wind speeds of up to 40 mph proved to be to much and the final round of competition was cancelled, awarding the leader after day two the 2014 championship. This is the first time the tournament has been shortened since 2003 when rain allowed just two rounds of competition.
"The start was delayed until 9:00 a.m. and we observed the first 50 minutes of play and found that golf balls weren't holding on the greens," stated Rob Halvaks, deputy commissioner. "With no prediction of certainty of when the conditions would be playable, we met with the SCGA rules officials and determined cancelling the final round was our only option."
