Kilpatrick Photos

Kilpatrick has returned to the team’s lineup on a consistent basis in the spring of 2014 after redshirting in 2012-13 and playing on only a single occasion in the fall of 2013. Since his return to the lineup on a full-time basis he has finished in the top 15 in four of 16 events including a career-best tied for eighth in his first event back at the John A. Burns Intercollegiate and a pair of tied for 12th place showings at the prestigious Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters and the Pac-12 Championship. Kilpatrick arrived at Cal in the spring of 2012 and made an immediate impact, playing in a total of seven events and five stroke-play tournaments including the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters and Pac-12 Championship.
