Bears End Windon Memorial in 12th

Oct. 5, 2009

GLENCOE, Ill. - The Golden Bears exited rugged weather conditions at Skokie Golf Club with a 12th-place finish Monday at the Windon Memorial as redshirt freshman James Coré recorded California's best round of the event, a 72, and was Cal's best finisher in his first competition for the Bears with a 10-over tie for 22nd.

Junior Eric Mina suffered seven bogies en route to a final-round 77 and an overall finish of 12-over (T30), while classmate Stephen Hale ended two strokes behind Mina at 14-over (T42).

Junior Evan Derian pointed his return to tournament play back in the right direction in Monday's final round with a 74 following a difficult second-round 84, and ended the event tied for 65th (+20). Freshman Curtis Loop finished in a tie for 74th at +24.

Overall, the Bears managed only 23 birdies against 93 bogies (including four double bogeys and one triple bogey), leaving them eager to get home and prepare for the Alister MacKenzie Invitational, which Cal hosts Oct. 12-13 at the Meadow Club in Fairfax.

'We just didn't get it done. Was experience a factor? I don't know,' said head coach Steve Desimone. 'We did not putt or play the par-5s very well. It was disappointing because we had the firepower to handle it better than we did. Fortunately we can get back after it next week.'
