Hawaii, Wolfenbarger win UH/Turtle Bay titles

Hawaii shot a team total of 295 yesterday to catch UNLV and win its own UH/Turtle Bay Intercollegiate golf tournament.

Cody Wolfenbarger was 10-under for the tournament to lead UH and win the individual title in Hawaii's final action of the fall golf season.

"The conditions were really tough going into today," UH coach Ronn Miyashiro said in a release.

"It just became a matter of hanging on because nobody blew up. We just held our ground and didn't fall apart."

Hawaii's Jarrett Hamamoto shot a 3-over 75 yesterday to lock up a tie for eighth place -- his second top-10 finish of the season.

UH beat UNLV by three strokes.

UH-Hilo's Nick Mason was 5-over for the tournament, a tie for 26th place. He led the Vulcans to 16th place.
