Highlights from NCAA Regionals Team Qualifying Tournament

Since the Pac-10 Championship at Stanford, the team has played four rounds of a team qualifying competition in order to determine the traveling roster for NCAA Regionals at Wolf Run, Indiana.

Here are a few of the Highlights...

Round 1 held on 5/6/11 at The California Golf Club:

It is just a 35 minute drive up to the Cal Club from Stanford but the change in conditions were a bit of a shock... minus 30 degrees fahrenheit and plus 15mph of wind! Nevertheless, scores were very respectable. David Chung and Cameron Wilson tied for low score with 73s whilst Graham Brockington and Steve Kearney shot 74s.

Round 2 held on 5/7/11 at Stanford Golf Course during the Alumni Match:

This time it was cool and breezy on the home track. Low scorers were Messrs. Brockington and Wilson with 72.

The Alumni took full use of their experience and forward tee advantage to beat the Team for the second time in three years!

Round 3 held on 5/11/11 at The Olympic Golf Club (Lake Course):

The beautiful and challenging course was somewhat tamed by Steven Kearney who played solidly for a round of 70 to take the low score by two from Steve Ziegler.

Round 3 held on 5/13/11 at Lake Merced Golf Club:

The story of the day was Graham Brockington's clutch round of 69 that won him the low score of the day by 3 from Sihwan Kim who shot a level par 72. With that 3 under par round, Graham also won the qualifying competition by 3 strokes.

Following play at Lake Merced the NCAA Regionals traveling roster was announced. The Team that will play Wolf Run, Indiana are:

1. Andrew Yun
2. David Chung
3. Graham Brockington
4. Steven Kearney
5. Steve Ziegler

Go Cardinal!
