NCAA Southwest: UCLA wins by 17
By Julie Williams, Golfweek

In winning its third stroke-play title of the season at the NCAA Tempe Regional, UCLA also claimed its fifth regional title in the past decade.

The Bruins won wire-to-wire, and after building their lead to 11 shots in Round 2, brought the same level of intensity to Saturday's final round. UCLA posted an 11-under 269 at the par-70 Karsten Golf Course, the lowest final round by three shots.

Credit Jonathan Garrick for widening UCLA’s margin of victory even more Saturday. The freshman shot a final-round 64, which was the third 64 posted by a UCLA player over the 54-hole event. Senior Pontus Widegren posted that number in Round 1, followed by fellow senior Pedro Figueiredo in Round 2.

Garrick, who tied for second at 8-under 202, was the low Bruin. Three teammates also finished inside the top 10.

UCLA’s 30-under 810 total is the team’s lowest this season. The Bruins finished 17 shots ahead of runners-up Georgia and Central Florida.
