Aztecs dominate in Fresno
SDSU wins by 26 strokes over second-place Pacific
No. 7 San Diego State men's golf team earned its second tournament title in as many weeks in dominant fashion, posting a 3-over 1083, including a final-round 362 on Tuesday to win the 54-hole Fresno State Lexus Classic by 26 strokes at the par-72, 6,950-yard Sunnyside Golf Course.
Pacific was second at 29-over 1109.
The win is the third tournament title in four spring events for the Aztecs.
J.J. Spaun was San Diego State's top finisher, placing third after shooting a 4-under 212 for the tournament. On the final 18 holes, the junior shot a 1-over 73. Sophomore Tom Berry also shot a 1-over 73 over the final 18 holes to finish with an even-par 216 for the two-day tournament. Berry's even-par effort was good for an eighth-place tie in the 100-player field.
Colin Featherstone was the third Aztec to register a top-15 finish after tying for 12th place with a 54-hole total of 218 (+2). The redshirt junior closed the tournament with a 3-over 75.
