Beverly stays hot, medals at NCGA Match Play
This time, Fairfield resident Aaron Beverly left no doubts regarding his fate.

Beverly, a junior at Sacramento State, claimed medalist honors and the No.1 seed at this week’s NCGA Amateur Match Play Championship on Tuesday, shooting a 3-under 69 at par-72 Spyglass Hill to finish stroke play qualifying with a 36-hole score of 141.

Last year, Beverly failed to advance to match play.

“It was just a steady round. I hit the ball in the right spots on the greens and kept it in the fairways,” said Beverly, who’ll face No. 32 seed Jack Persons in the first round.

A day after carding a steady opening round 72 that featured one bogey and a birdie, Beverly took it deeper, posting five birdies to go with just two bogeys.
