Cal Charges Back to Win Arizona Intercollegiate

Feb. 2, 2010

TUCSON, AZ - The Cal men's golf team charged back by making up 12 shots on the final four holes to win its school-record third tournament of the regular season with a one-shot victory over host Arizona at the Arizona Intercollegiate.

Michael Weaver, who had led the two-day 54-hole event at the end of Monday's first two rounds of action, finished tied for second with a 10-under par three-round total of 203 after shooting a par-71 round Tuesday. Arizona's Rich Saferian won the event played at Arizona National with a 13-under par three-round total after shooting the best 18 holes of the day Tuesday with a 66.

'This was really special,' said Cal head coach Steve Desimone. 'As far as regular-season victories go this was about as good as it gets.'

A full recap will follow.
