SMC golfers win 1st round at Cal State Amateur

Saint Mary’s golfers Roman Aragon and Perry Cohen got off to solid starts at the California Amateur Championship at Valencia (Calif.) Country Club.

Aragon took 19 holes to knock off Andrew Levitt of Ladera Ranch, while Cohen defeated Kevin Velo of Danville 2 & 1.  Both players advanced to the round of 16 tomorrow morning at 8 a.m.  Should both players advance, they will square off on Friday morning.

One of the nation’s oldest state amateur golf championships, the event originated in 1912 and was held at Pebble Beach Golf Links from 1919 until 2006. In 2007 the CGA broadened the scope of this prestigious championship by rotating the weeklong event to selected courses throughout the state, alternating between Northern California and Southern California every other year.

The championship consists of 156 players who will play 36-holes of stroke play to determine the 32 player match play field. The final match is played over 36 holes.
