Cal Wins Ram Fall Classic

Sept. 11, 2007

FORT COLLINS, Colo. - The California women's golf team opened the 2007 fall season by winning the Ptarmigan Ram Fall Classic Tuesday at the Ptarmigan Country Club. The Golden Bears tied the school record for 54 holes by finishing at four-over 868 after shooting a one-under 287 over the final 18 holes.

Today's win marked Cal's first tournament victory since the Oregon Invitational in March 2005.

Washington State was the runner-up at the Ram Fall Classic, finishing 23 shots behind Cal at 887. BYU and Colorado tied for third at 891, and San Jose State and Colorado State tied for fifth at 898 at the 20-team tournament.

Cal junior Shannon Yocum also took top honors in the individual competition with a career-best score of two-under 214. Yocum shot a two-under 70 today - also a career best - to move from second to first. Bears freshman Pia Halbig placed second at even-par 216 in her first collegiate event. Halbig also was below par today at one-under. Yocum and Halbig each sank four birdies in the final round, and Yocum sealed her first collegiate title with a birdie on the par 4, 18th hole.

Cal sophomores Sofia Janer and Roseanne Niven also turned in top-10 showings, tying for ninth at 221. Junior Allison Goodman tied for 21st at 224.

The Bears return to action at the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational Oct. 8-10.
