Four Bruins Named to All-Pac-10 Golf Team

May 3, 2010

Four UCLA players were selected to the 2010 All-Pac-10 Men's Golf Team, the conference announced on Monday.

Sophomore Alex Shi Yup Kim was named to the first-team, and freshmen Pedro Figueiredo and Pontus Widegren and sophomore Gregor Main were selected to the second-team.

Kim's selection to the first team completes a remarkable turnaround from his freshman season. A year ago, Kim was ranked 438th nationally by GolfWeek with a season-ending scoring average of 75.5 in 28 rounds, 121 strokes over par. This season in 31 rounds, he has averaged 71.6, ranked 41st nationally and has posted nine rounds under par. He's also recorded six Top 20 results and three Top 10 finishes. In 10 starts, he's just 15-over par. In the second round of the USC Invitational, he fired a career collegiate best round of 65 (-6) and tied for eighth overall.

Main, last year's conference freshman of the year, has also enjoyed an outstanding season, tying for fourth place last week at the Pac-10 Championships at 11-under par 273. He leads the Bruins in stroke average (71.1), rounds under par (11) and rounds under 70 (8). He played 31 rounds this season in even par.

Widegren, ranked 50th in the nation, boasts a 71.7 scoring average in 31 rounds, 18-over par. He has recorded a pair of Top 10 results, 10 rounds under par and eight rounds under 70. Earlier this season he fired a final round 64 (-7) to tie for third at The Battle of the Beach. Recently, he was selected to compete for Sweden in next month's Palmer Cup.

Figueredo, ranked 91st, has averaged 72.3 in 31 rounds. He is tied for the team lead with four Top 10 finishes. In his first college tournament in October, he tied for second with a 54-hole total of 210 (-6) at The Prestige.
