Hello Cardinal Faithful:
We are down to the nitty gritty and NCAA post season play! We find our NCAA Regional assignment next Monday May 10th, and eager to see what challenge lies ahead. The team is in good spirits after a close call at the Pac-10's last week at the ASU Karsten Course in Tempe. We jumped out to an impressive lead after the first day with some of the best golf I have witnessed out of our guys all season. We continued to play solid the rest of the event but hats off to the Washington Huskies for tracking us down. They closed strongly and ended up clipping us by three shots. A razor slim margin when counting five scores out of six guys. A ton of positives came out of the week even though finishing second is not the greatest feeling .... Sihwan Kim's 63 in round 1 and the play of Joseph Bramlett with three consecutive 66's were worth noting. I believe we have some good momentum as we approach Regionals and the guys have been grinding to be well prepared to try and win our 9th NCAA crown.
Recruiting for the new year continues to keep us busy as well. Cameron Wilson and Shane Lebow will be huge adds for us next year and in the 2011 entry class we have a very qualified, highly ranked, pool of players that will hopefully some day call themselves Cardinal!
I hope that if you are near our post season venues that you will come out and cheer us on! Go Cardinal and thanks for all of your support.
