June 26, 2009


California Golden Bear Diane Kwon won the 79th Annual Long Beach City Golf Championship in Southern California, shooting a three-under in the two day tournament to earn the medalist honors. The tournament, held June 18 and 19 at the Recreation Park and El Dorado Park courses, was the first victory of the summer for Kwon, but the second for Cal golfers. Teammate Pia Halbig won the Slovenian International Ladies Amateur Championship at the beginning of June.
