GLENVIEW, ILL - The University of California men's golf team placed 14th at the second annual Big Ten/Pac-10 Challenge Tuesday at The Glen Club (par 72, 7,149 yards) in Glenview, Ill. The Golden Bears shot a three-round score of 920 (298, 310, 312). Junior Michael Wilson (75-74-78) and freshman George Gandranata (75-74-78) paced the Bears with scores of 227 (+11), tying for 49th.

This year's field includes seven schools from each league: Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, UCLA, Oregon, USC and Washington from the Pac-10; Indiana, Illinois, Michigan State, Minnesota, Northwestern, Ohio State and Purdue from the Big Ten. Host Northwestern ended up winning the tournament with a score of 860 (286, 289, 285, -4). With three birdies on his last four holes, Northwestern's David Merkow came from behind to capture the individual title, and in the process, help the Wildcats claim the team title by three strokes over Minnesota.

Merkow, who carded a 4-under 68 for the third round and a career-best 7-under 209 (71-70-68) for the tournament, edged Washington's James Lepp, the 2005 NCAA champion, by a single stroke. Cal's other finishers included sophomore Jeff Vetterick at 234 (63rd, 78-82-74, +18), true freshman Larry Wong, from Diamond Bar, Calif. (Diamond Ranch High School) at 239 (68th, 75, 79, 85, +23) and senior Fredrik Svanberg at 242 (70th, 82, 80, 80, +26).

The Bears will next host the Alister MacKenzie Invitational, Mon-Tue., Oct. 10-11 at The Meadow Club in Fairfax, Calif. Teams competing in this years' Alister MacKenzie Invitational include Cal, Cal Poly, Fresno State, Hawaii, Kansas State, Michigan, Oregon, Oregon State, Penn State, Purdue, San Jose State, Stanford, UC Irvine, San Francisco, Washington State and Wichita State. Last year, Oregon State was the team champion with a minus 4 848, while Cal placed third with an 856 (+4).
