Mahanth Chirravuri earns medalist honors.
Team Arizona – made up of Mahanth Chirravuri, Brasen Briones, George Rubelsky and Brayden Bozak – came in first place in the 2022 Hogan Cup held at Riverside Golf & Country Club in Portland, Oregon, August 13-14. The win marks Arizona’s third victory in the tournament’s 54-year history, with the second in team championship in 2018 and the first 36 years ago in 1986.
In the four-person-team format, the three lowest individual scores each day determine the team total score. In the first round, team Arizona made the turn at +3, before finishing at +7. They then fired even-par as a team on the final day, with rounds of 68-69-76 to remain at 7-over par. Oregon finished in second place at +14 and Idaho came in third at +15.
Individually, Chirravuri of Chandler, a member of the 2018 championship squad, topped the 2022 individual leaderboard at -3, four strokes ahead of second place. As the only player in red figures, the soon to be USC Trojan put up three birdies in the middle of his first round to post even-par 71. He then had it to 4-under after six holes in the final round, before closing with a 3-under 68. After posting T6 in 2018, Chirravuri topped this year’s second place finisher by four strokes and third place by five. Tucson’s Briones finished T4 at +3, after rounds of 76-69. Rubelsky, Phoenix resident en route to Columbia University, fired +7 (73-76) to finish T13, and Chandler’s Braden Bozak came in T34, with rounds of 77-79. He will join the UNLV Golf team in the fall.
