Without Tomasulo, Bears Finish 9th at ASU Tournament

April 10, 2004

TEMPE, Ariz. - Playing without its No. 1 player - senior Peter Tomasulo - in the third round Saturday, the 16th-ranked Cal men's golf team finished ninth at the ASU Thunderbird Invitational on the Karsten Course.

The Bears shot a three-round total of six-under-par 858, finishing in the middle of the pack in the 16-team field. Host Arizona State won the event with a tournament-record 43-under-par 821, followed by Arizona (832) and USC (835).

Tomasulo, who carded a course and tournament-record 11-under 61 (29-32) in the opening round and was tied for second at 11-under 133 after two rounds, had to withdraw after 12 holes in the final round due to an injury. His first-round 61 was one stroke better than the 62 shot by 2000 U.S. Amateur champion Jeff Quinney on April 18, 1999.

Without Tomasulo, J.R. Ruda was Cal's top finisher, tying for 18th at 211 after shooting a final round 69. Jeff Hood tied for 45th at 216, while Michael Wilson (T51st, 219) and Brandon Beck (T77, 227) rounded out the Bears' lineup.
