Charlottesville, VA - Virginia men's golf coach Bowen Sargent took some time off from the recruiting trail to win the inaugural Central Virginia Match Play Championship at Spring Creek Golf Club Sunday. Sargent built a commanding lead and held off a furious rally by Paul Kane for a 2-and-1 victory.
It was the first time Sargent competed in a match play event since playing in the 1991 U.S. Amateur Championship before turning professional.
With the match even after seven holes, Sargent birdied four of the next five holds to build a 4-up lead in the event. Beginning with the 6th hole, Sargent played a seven-hole stretch at 5-under par, ending it with a birdie on the par-5 12th.
Kane rebounded to win holes No. 13, 15 and 16 to draw within one hole of squaring the match. Sargent took the trophy when Kane was forced to concede the par-3 17th hole. The UVa coach stood 1-under par for the day with five birdies and four bogeys. Kane had played the first 16 holes at even par (three birdies, three pars).
The field for the inaugural event included the top 32 finishers in the local Battle Trophy standings.
