Cal Ties for 8th at PING-Arizona Intercollegiate
Feb. 4, 2003
The California men's golf team posted a three round total of 851 (-1) to tie for eighth place with Arizona's junior varsity squad at the PING-Arizona Intercollegiate Tuesday afternoon. This is the lowest three-rounds the Golden Bears have played since 2001 when they shot an 851 at the Vandal Fall Classic.
Host Arizona shot a 23-under par 829 to lead the 16-team two-day tournament, contested at Arizona National Country Club in Sabino Springs, AZ, a par 71, 6,793-yard facility. UCLA carded an 831 (-21) to capture second place, followed by Pepperdine's 840 (-12). Rounding out the Top 5 are USC (845) and Wake Forest (846).
Individually, the Golden Bears were led by junior Peter Tomasulo, who shared a three-way tie for sixth place (206). Tomasulo crept back after standing in 15th place after the first round (70), carding 68's on the second and third rounds and making a way into a Top 10 finish for the fourth time during the 2002-03 season. His 206 three-round total ties his personal best collegiate record.
Chris Baryla of University of Texas El Paso emerged as the individual medallist (68-66-69=203) with a one-stroke lead ahead of Arizona's Chris Nallen (67-68-69).
After standing in 13th place after a first round team effort of 292, the Bears climbed into eighth place after the second round, shooting 275.
Cal returns to action February 19-21 at the John Burns Invitational hosted by Hawaii.
