Bruins Travel to Stanford for U.S. Intercollegiate
April 10, 2010
The seventh-ranked UCLA men's golf team travels to Stanford to play in the U.S. Intercollegiate, Apr. 11-13.
Twenty teams will compete in the 54-hole tournament at the Stanford Golf Course, which measures 6,727 yards with a par of 70. Nine Pac-10 teams are competing, including No. 5 Washington and No. 8 USC. Host Stanford is ranked third nationally.
The Bruins have won this tournament seven times, most recently in 2006. The last UCLA individual to win the U.S. Intercollegiate was Kevin Leach in 1987 (206).
The UCLA lineup consists entirely of underclassmen: sophomores Gregor Main and Alex Shi Yup Kim and freshmen Mario Clemens, Pedro Figueiredo and Pontus Widegren. Clemens recorded his best collegiate result at the ASU Thunderbird earlier this month by tying for 11th place.
In addition, the individual winner of the 2010 U.S. Intercollegiate receives an exemption to the 2010 Reno/Tahoe PGA Tour event later this year.
