Led by Michael Wilson's Title, Cal Men's Golf Places Third at CordeValle Collegiate

Nov. 1, 2005

SAN MARTIN, CALIF. - The University of California men's golf team, behind junior Michael Wilson's individual title, placed third at the inaugural CordeValle Collegiate, played at CordeValle Country Club in San Martin, Calif. Wilson, who redshirted last season and is the only returning member of the Golden Bears' 2004 NCAA championship squad, shot a 10-under three-round score of 206 (69, 70, 67), outpacing UCLA's Erik Flores and Arizona's Henry Liaw by six strokes (212). Wilson shot a 30 on the back nine of his final round, including four birdies and an eagle on the par five 15th hole.

As a team, Cal finished tied for third with Arkansas, shooting a three-round score of 859 (297, 282, 280, -5), trailing only host UCLA's 849 (284, 281, 284, -15) and Northwestern's 855 (291, 277, 287, -9). The CordeValle course measured 7,169 yards and carried a par of 72.

Wilson is the first Bear to capture an individual tournament title since Jeff Hood won the 2003 Mid-Pines Intercollegiate, Sept. 9, 2003 in Southern Pines, North Carolina. This past March, Wilson, the 2003 Pac-10 Co-Freshman of the Year, won the San Francisco City Championship at Harding Park.

Other finishers for Cal included sophomore Michael Jensen tying for 14th with an even par 216 (77, 68, 71), freshman Larry Wong tying for 30th with three-over 219 (78, 70, 71), freshman George Gandranata tying for 45th with a seven-over 223 (77, 75, 71) and sophomore Kyle Dowden tying for 55th with a 10-over 226 (74, 74, 78).

The CordeValle Collegiate concluded the Bears' 2005 fall season, which included a team-title at the Alister MacKenzie Invitational, Oct. 11 at the Meadow Club in Fairfax, Calif. Cal will next compete at the PING/Arizona Intercollegiate, Jan. 30-31, 2006 in Tucson, Ariz.
