CAL NOTES

► Seeding and Rankings – Cal is No. 5 seed in the NCAA Championship as well as the No. 5 team in the most recent rankings released by Golfstat (May 20) and the Golf World/Nike Golf Division I College Coaches’ Poll (May 14). Cal is No. 6 in the latest Golfweek/Sagarin rankings (May 18).

Cal to Play First Two Rounds of NCAA Championship with Georgia Tech and Georgia – The seedings, pairings and tee times for the first two rounds of the 2014 NCAA Championship were announced on Monday, May 19. Cal will play with No. 4 and No. 6 seeds Georgia Tech and Georgia for the first 36 holes of action Friday and Saturday. Cal’s group featuring one player from each of the three teams in a total of five threesomes will start Friday’s opening round from the first tee at 12:40 p.m. CT. The same three teams will begin from the 10th tee Saturday at 7 a.m. CT, with the pairings and tee times for Sunday’s third and final round of team stroke play to be determined by the results of the first two rounds.

NCAA Championship History (Team) – Cal has extended its school record of NCAA Championship appearances in 2013-14 to five in a row with its 13th appearance overall, advancing from the NCAA Sugar Grove Super Regional during its school-record-tying eighth straight NCAA Regional appearance. The school-record NCAA Championship streak started in 2009-10 when the Bears reached the final 30-team field for the first time since the school’s lone national title in 2004. Cal was 23rd in 2009-10 and improved to a tie for 19th in the 2011 before back-to-back appearances in the match-play semifinals to tie for third each of the past two seasons. The team’s other previous appearances since NCAA Regional play began have come in 1995, ’98, ’99 and 2000. Cal was sixth in 1995, 15th in 1998, tied for 16th in 1999 and tied for 17th in 2000. Cal also played in the event four times prior to the beginning of the Regional format in 1939 (16th), 1948 (T20th) and 1949 (17th). Cal’s lone match-play participation has come over the last two seasons with the Bears a combined 2-2 with a 1-1 mark in each campaign.

► NCAA Championship History (2014 Lineup) – Four of the five players in the Cal lineup at the 2014 NCAA Championship – Brandon Hagy, Pace Johnson, Joël Stalter and Michael Weaver – have experience playing at the NCAA Championship. Hagy and Weaver will both be playing in the event for the fourth time with previous top finishes of eighth for Hagy in 2013 and tied for eighth for Weaver in 2011. Stalter will be playing in the event for the third time with his top finish tied for 49th in 2013 and Johnson for the second time with his previous finish tied for 61st in 2012. Shotaro Ban will be playing in his first NCAA Championship.

► Amazingly Successful Three-Year Run – In addition to winning six of its first 13 events in 2013-14, Cal has been victorious in 24 of its last 39 stroke-play tournaments overall dating back to the beginning of the 2011-12 campaign. The Bears have finished in the top five in 38 of those 39 events as well as another four additional match-play events during the period for 42 top-five showings in their last 43 tournaments overall.

► Next Win – Another Cal victory this season would give the Bears seven in 2013-14 and the second-most in school history behind the record 12 stoke-play events Cal won in 2012-13.

► Hagy Raking in the Honors – National Player of the Year, All-American and All-America Scholar candidate Brandon Hagy has a long list of awards in 2013-14 including the Byron Nelson Award, Capital One Academic All-District® 8 Men’s At-Large, Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year, Tom Hansen Pac-12 Conference Medal, Co-Team MVP Cal’s Ben Furth Award and a Golden Bear Achievement Award. He was also a national semifinalist for The Ben Hogan Award, a first-team All-Pac-12 selection, chosen to represent Team USA in the 2014 Palmer Cup and the Pac-12’s Player of the Month for September of 2013. Hagy is a candidate for several more 2013-14 honors yet to be announced. Hagy is ranked as high as No. 6 in the latest national rankings according to Golfweek.

► Stalter Earning His Share of Recognition – Joël Stalter, also a candidate for All-American and All-America Scholar honors, also spent most of the season among the top on the Haskins Award watch list, was a finalist for the Byron Nelson Award, on the watch list for The Ben Hogan Award and a first-team All-Pac-12 selection. Stalter is ranked as high as No. 18 in the latest national rankings according to Golfweek.

► Individual Medalists – Hagy and Stalter have both been individual medalists three times in 2013-14, which is one shy of the school-record four individual medalist honors captured by 2012-13 unanimous national player of the year Michael Kim. Hagy won outright at the Jack Nicklaus Invitational and Aggie Invitational, while Stalter was victorious on his own at the Alister MacKenzie Invitational and National Invitational Tournament. The two shared the Arizona Intercollegiate title.

► National Team Birdie Leader – Cal leads the nation with 695 birdies and is 31 ahead of second-place Arizona State (664) and 35 in front of its closest competitor at the NCAA Championship in Oklahoma State (660). The Bears are also among the nation’s top 10 teams in greens in regulation (2nd, 68.7%), putts on greens in regulation (4th, 1.819), subpar strokes per round (4th, 3.58) and par-four scoring (8th, 4.09). Individually, Brandon Hagy is tied for fourth nationally with seven eagles, fifth with a 73.7 percentage of hitting greens in regulation and tied for sixth with 136 birdies, while Joël Stalter is seventh with 4.36 subpar strokes per round. Cal’s complete national team and individual stroke-play stats and rankings can be found online at http://golfstat.com/2013-2014/men/mstop10.htm.

► Pac-12 and NCAA Regional Win Streaks Snapped – Cal had won two consecutive team titles at both the Pac-12 Championship and NCAA Regionals during the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons before finishing third at the Pac-12 Championship and tied fourth at the NCAA Sugar Grove Regional this season.

► NCAA Championship Lineup Change – After sporting the same five players in the lineup (Shotaro Ban, Brandon Hagy, Keelan Kilpatrick, Joël Stalter and Michael Weaver) for both the Pac-12 Championship and NCAA Sugar Grove Regional, the Bears will replace Kilpatrick with Pace Johnson at the NCAA Championship. Johnson was last in the lineup March 7-9 at the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters but also played twice as an individual since then at the Aggie Invitational and Western Intercollegiate. Johnson is a senior in his third season with the program after transferring from Cal Poly prior to the 2011-12 campaign. He played at the NCAA Championship during his first campaign in 2011-12 before redshirting last season.

► 10-Year NCAA Championship Anniversary – Cal (279-289-287-279 – 1134, +14) won its lone NCAA title 10 years ago in 2004. The Bears had led by a single stroke after each of the first two rounds of the 72-hole stroke-play format before falling into third place after 54 holes eight shots behind third-round leader UCLA. But Cal had the best round of the day in the fourth and final round, outshooting the Bruins by 14 strokes for a six-shot win. Jeff Hood (65-71-77-69 – 282, +2) and Peter Tomasulo (72-73-70-67 – 282, +2) led the effort by tying for 10th place. Cal had entered the tournament as the No. 24 seed after finishing seventh at the Pac-10 Championship and tied for sixth at the NCAA West Regional at the Sunriver Resort at the Crosswater Club in Sunriver, Oregon.

► Longest Trip in NCAA Regional History – Cal’s trip to the 2014 NCAA Sugar Grove Regional marked the longest trip the Bears had ever made for an NCAA Regional. The furthest east the team has traveled previously was in 2009 to Austin, Tex.

► All-Pac-12 Honors – Brandon Hagy and Joël Stalter were selected to the 2013-14 All-Pac-12 Men’s Golf first-team by the league’s head coaches to lead five Golden Bears honored. Pace Johnson, Keelan Kilpatrick and Michael Weaver were honorable mention picks. Hagy, Stalter and Weaver were all honored on the All-Pac-12 team for the third time in their collegiate careers, while Johnson and Kilpatrick were recognized on the first occasion. Hagy had earned second-team honors each of the past two seasons, while Stalter was a second-team selection last year after picking up honorable mention recognition in 2011-12. Weaver was previously a first-team pick in 2012-13 and an honorable mention choice in 2009-10.

► Team Awards – Brandon Hagy and Joël Stalter shared Most Valuable Player honors when the Cal men’s golf program announced its 2013-14 team awards during its annual banquet May 3 at the Orinda Country Club. Hagy, who also shared team MVP honors in 2011-12 with Michael Kim and Max Homa, added the Ben Furth Award given for academic and athletic excellence for the third consecutive year. Other 2013-14 honorees included Alex Helgans (Co-Most Improved Player), Pace Johnson (Ed Arnold Coaches Award), Keelan Kilpatrick (Co-Most Improved Player), Michael Weaver (Ed Arnold Coaches Award) and Alexander Wilson (Newcomer of the Year). The team’s Coaches Award was renamed this season in honor of Arnold, who passed away last November at the age of 95 after being a longtime friend of the program.

► Special Day – The self-funded Cal men’s golf program received a boost on May 7 with the presentation of a $10,000 grant by the Northern California PGA Foundation in honor of Jim Langley, a Cal alumnus who was the PGA head professional at Cypress Point Club on the Monterey Peninsula for 34 years and who passed away last summer. Langley’s wife, Louette “Lou” Langley was on hand to present the check to head coach Steve Desimone, who expressed his appreciation for the grant and the program’s relationship with the NCPGA Foundation. The ceremony at the California Memorial Stadium University Club was preceded by a luncheon attended by Desimone; Walter Chun, associate head coach; 11 of the 14 members the Cal men’s golf team, members of the Cal Golf Committee, and a few University staff. Representing the NCPGA Foundation were Langley; Len Dumas, President; John Hughes, Secretary; Frank LaRosa, Tracy Stansberry and John Abendroth, Board Members; Chris Thomas, Executive Director; and Nancy Maul, Managing Director. The NCPGA Foundation has committed to supporting the Cal men’s golf program for three years and hopes to continue the commitment through the help of the community and alumni through its many fundraising activities.

PRAIRIE DUNES COUNTRY CLUB

Prairie Dunes Country Club (4812 E. 30th, Hutchinson, KS) is an American original and one of the most scenic courses anywhere. You could never mistake pictures of it for any other American course, although it is easily confused with some of the best of the British Isles. Hutchinson, Kan., the center of the United States, is the last place anyone would expect to find a links style course with rolling hills reminiscent of the seaside courses in Scotland. Nestled five miles northeast of Hutchinson, Prairie Dunes is the hidden treasure of Kansas.

Emerson Carey, founder of Carey salt company, was an avid golfers and had traveled the world with his family, playing top ranked courses in the early 1900s including Scotland in the 19230s. Carey and his four sons became a staple in the Hutchinson golf community, contributing to the development of several courses in the area. In 1935 the Carey family commissioned architectural genius Perry Maxwell (Southern Hills, Colonial Country Club, redesign of Pine Valley and Augusta National) to design a masterpiece. Thus, the idea of Prairie Dunes was born.

Maxwell’s response to the 480 acre canvas for his masterpiece, “There are 118 holes here, and all I have to do is eliminate 100.”

Thus, construction began on Prairie Dunes. The course was molded from the Kansas land using 18 horses and mules, Fresno scrapers and wheelbarrows. The only mechanized equipment used were Model T and Model A Fords used to bring workers to the site. Greens and fairways came to life by teams dragging plows and scoops, while roots of native grass and weeds were removed by hand – one wheel barrowful at a time. In true Kansas fashion, a tornado swept across the site, forcing men into a bunker for protection. Despite the elements, Prairie Dunes opened the first nine holes on September 13, 1937. Twenty years later in 1957, The Dunes opened the second nine holes, designed by Perry Maxwell’s son, Press.

The Carey family brought the masterpiece that is Prairie Dunes to the world of golf and continued to contribute to this wonderful game. Two members of the Carey family became influential figures in the United States Golf Association (USGA), while Howard J. (Jake) Carey was elected a director of the Trans-Mississippi Golf Association in 1950, served for seven years on the USGA Executive Committee as chairman of the Senior Championship Committee and the Public Links Committee.

In the vision of the Carey family and Perry Maxwell, Prairie Dunes has become a world renowned course and has played home to several major events including the Trans-Miss Men’s Amateur (1958, 1973, 1987, 1996, 2005), U.S. Women’s Amateur (1964, 1980, 1991), Curtis Cup Match (1986), U.S. Mid-Amateur (1988), U.S. Men’s Senior Amateur (1995), U.S. Women’s Open (2002), U.S. Senior Open (2006) and Men’s NCAA Championship (2014).

Other honors include No. 13 in Golfweek’s Best Classic Courses (2014), No. 17 in Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Courses in the U.S. (2013), No. 25 in Golf Digest’s America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses (2013-14) and No. 26 Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Courses in the World (2013).

DES SAYS
► On NCAA Championship experience of players in 2014 NCAA lineup
“The seniors have been through it – the competitive side, the pressure side, every one of the four has played in at least one NCAA Championship. There isn’t anything new here to these guys.”
► On playing at Prairie Dunes earlier this year prior to the Aggie Invitational
“We’ve already played 27 holes at Prairie Dunes. Conditions will be different than what we saw five weeks ago but the layout, the landing areas, the greens, a lot of the things that we’ll need the knowledge about on the course we’ll be reasonably comfortable with. That will definitely help us as we go forward. We took a little detour before the Aggie Invitational and that was one of the best decisions we ever made.”
► On final chance for seniors to win an NCAA title
“This is the end of an era, one way or another – win, lose or draw over the next few days. Obviously we’re going back to compete and our goal is to bring back an NCAA championship, but whatever happens back there is not going to put any type of a cloud over what these guys have accomplished over the four and five years they’ve been at Cal.”
► On Brandon Hagy, Joël Stalter and Michael Weaver graduating from the Haas School of Business
“It’s a time of celebration. They are three of the best student-athletes in the history of not just Cal golf but in the history of Cal Athletics. I am very proud to have been their coach and really proud of what they’ve accomplished.”


Associate Head Coach Walter Chun
Former Cal golf standout, Walter Chun is in his 10th season on the Golden Bears’ coaching staff in 2013-14 and his fifth as associate head coach, with the Bears making the NCAA Championship in each of his first five campaigns in his current role after a previous five-year absence.

CAL’S NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP HISTORY

Cal has extended its school record of NCAA Championship appearances in 2013-14 to five in a row with its 13th appearance overall. The school-record streak started in 2009-10 when the Bears reached the final 30-team field for the first time since the school’s lone national title in 2004. Cal was 23rd in 2009-10 and improved to tied for 19th in the 2011 before back-to-back appearances in the match-play semifinals to tie for third each of the past two seasons. The team’s other previous appearances since Regional play began have come in 1995, ’98, ’99 and 2000. Cal was also sixth in 1995; 15th, tied for 16th and tied for 17th, respectively from 1998-2000. Cal also played in the event prior to the beginning of the Regional format in 1939 (16th), 1948 (T20th) and 1949 (17th). Cal’s lone match-play participation has come over the last two seasons when the Golden Bears were a combined 2-2 and 1-1 in each campaign. Following are recaps of each of the team’s past five appearances at the NCAA Championship that cover the current streak and the team’s lone NCAA title.

2013
Cal's historic 2012-13 season came to an end when Illinois defeated the No. 1-ranked and top-seeded Golden Bears, 3-2, in an NCAA Championship semifinal match at the Capital City Club's par-70, 7,319-yard Crabapple Course.
