Mikles’ solid round lifts Dons over Buena

Spencer Mikles hit 15 greens and shot an even-par 72 to lead Santa Barbara to a 387-394 Channel League win over Buena.

“Spencer hit the ball great today, making 3 birdies and 3 bogeys,” said Santa Barbara coach James Bedard.

Jonathan Collins and Mickey Kirby each fired 76s, as the Dons improved to 10-2. Buena is 5-2.

“Our depth helped with this win as Mickey and Jonathan chipped in with matching 76s,” Bedard said. “A win on the road in league is always a strong win and, even when some of the guys don’t have their ‘A’ game, it is nice for some of the others to step up.”
