Men's Golf Competes at Husky Invitational

Sept. 27, 2001

SEATTLE - Following two top-5 finishes to start the season, Cal men's golf coach Steve Desimone is looking to continue the momentum on Oct. 1-2 at the Husky Invitational.

In the team's first outing at the Mid Pines Intercollegiate, Cal placed fourth and last week finished third at the Vandal Fall Classic.

This week, Cal faces a field that includes five other Pac-10 schools. Two of those, Washington State and host Washington, finished ahead of Cal at the Vandal Classic last week.

'I have a clear sense that we're playing pretty well overall,' Desimone said. 'We're still looking to solidify our fifth-man position, but we'll give George (Serra) another shot this week.'

The Bears finished fifth at last year's Husky Invitational, but this year's tournament takes place on a different course. The teams will compete at Gold Mountain Golf Complex (par 72, 7,035 yards).

Joining Cal and host University of Washington are Pac-10 rivals Washington State, Oregon, Oregon State and Stanford. The rest of the field includes defending Husky Invitational champion Pepperdine as well as Georgia Southern, University of Nevada at Reno and Colorado.

The format of the tournament calls for 36 holes of play on Monday and 18 holes on Tuesday. Tee times start at 7:30 a.m. both days. The tournament features six-man teams with the best five scores going toward the team scoring.

1. Scott Carlyle
