Bears Tied for 21st at NCAA West Regional

May 20, 2004

SUNRIVER, Ore. - The Cal men's golf team faces an uphill battle to earn a berth in the NCAA championship rounds after shooting a 13-over-par 301 on the first day of competition at the NCAA West Regional Thursday at the Sunriver Resort in Sunriver, Ore.

The Golden Bears are tied for 21st place with Coastal Carolina, 18 strokes behind leader UCLA. In order to advance, Cal needs to finish 10th or higher in the 27-team field. Washington and UC Riverside are currently tied for the 10th position at 10-over-par (293).

The Bears have two more rounds to make up ground, with the tournament concluding Saturday afternoon.

Senior Peter Tomasulo was the only Bear not over par, as he shot an even-par 72 to tie for 26th place. Tomasulo started strong, getting to two under after 10 holes, but he ended the day with two bogeys over his final four holes.

Other Bear finishers included Jesse Ruda at 2-over 74 (T49th), Jeff Hood at 4-over 76 (T87) and Michael Wilson at 79 (T113th). Scott Carlyle, in his first action after missing several weeks with a back injury, struggled with a 13-over-par 85.
