Men's Golf Finishes Third At Stevinson Ranch

March 27, 2001

STEVINSON, Calif. - The Cal men's golf team, fifth after the first two rounds, were sparked by Peter Tomasulo's 73 and J.R. Ruda's 74 in the final round Tuesday and captured third place at the Stevinson Ranch Invitational. The No. 42-ranked Bears posted rounds of 306-299-301.

Kansas, winner of the first two CU-Stevinson invites and ranked No. 23, made it a hat trick as the Jayhawks won with an 899 team score, surviving the tough 7,029-yard, par-72 Stevinson Ranch Golf Club course layout along with two days of blustery conditions. Colorado, ranked No. 46, was second, five strokes back at 904, Cal was third and Tulsa (No. 32) and Pacific tied for fourth at 910. It is the first time more than two teams finished here within 10 shots of first place.

Kansas' Travis Hurst hung on to win medalist honors, as he recorded a 72-70-71-213 scorecard to win by shot over Colorado sophomore Kane Webber (74-72-68-214). Pacific's Jason Higton led going into the final round, but ballooned to a 76, still lower than the average score for the day, and finished third at 217. Hurst was in second, one behind Higton but four ahead of Webber, who recorded the tournament's only round in the 60s with his four-under 68 to close things out.

For the Bears, Ruda shot a three-round score of 225 (+9) to tie him for 7th place. Tomasulo and Dong Yi each shot a 228 (+12) and tied for 10th. James Hahn's 231 (+15) was good enough to tie him for 21st. Walter Chun posted a 234 (+18) and finished tied for 26th.
