Cal Bear Michael Weaver Sets New Course Record On MacKenzie GC at Haggin Oaks

Today in the 86th Annual California State Fair Golf Championship on the MacKenzie GC at Haggin Oaks, University of California sophomore Michael Weaver fired a blistering 63 to set a new course record on the 78 year old track.

As a freshman on the Cal Bears team, Weaver was a major force.  He posted the team’s second-lowest stroke average at 72.0 … finished tied for 41st at his first NCAA Championships (75-73-69 – 217, +1) with his final round 69 the best score shot by a Cal player at the 2010 NCAA’s … put together back-to-back impressive outings in his two events preceding the NCAA’s, placing a team-high eighth at the NCAA Southwest Regional (70-74-73 – 217, +1) after tying for sixth at the Pac-10 Championship (68-71-66-69 – 274, -10) … Cal’s top finisher in each of the team’s last two events, as well as its second finisher behind Pac-10 champion Eric Mina at the conference tournament … was named the California Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week (May 24) after his NCAA Southwest Regional performance … his finish at the NCAA Southwest Regional was the highest NCAA Regional finish for a Cal player since All-American and current PGA Tour professional Peter Tomasulo tied for sixth in 2004 … had four top-10 finishes, also tying for second at the Arizona Intercollegiate (64-68-71 – 203, -10) and tying for eighth at the Alister MacKenzie Invitational (69-68 – 137, -5) … the 64 he shot to open the Arizona Intercollegiate is a career-best and was also the lowest round by a Cal player this season … missed a pair of tournaments in the spring due to illness after his Arizona Intercollegiate showing before returning to action for each of the last six events.
