California, pictured right, won its third tournament of the fall

Wednesday afternoon at Kapolei Golf Course. The Golden Bears fired

at the 17-team tournament.

71 today to finish at one-under 215. She finished two strokes ahead
of Cal senior Ria Quiazon and Texas A&M's Nicole Melton.
All five of Cal's golfers were placed in the Top 20 at the tournament
with Vikki Laing (Musselburgh) placed at 19th at 224, including
an even-par 72 for her last round.
The University of San Francisco posted a new program single round
record when they shot a final round 288 to finish fifth. Cruden
Bay Senior Lyndsey Devenish (75, 75, 72) was the top finisher for
USF and TOP SCOT, earning a share of 11th with a 222 when she fired

for 21st with 225.

California 15 shots in the lead after two rounds in Hawaii
University of California, Berkeley (Cal Bears) are having their
best season ever, reflected in their No 12 position in the Division
I league table, and have continued their success by taking a 15
shot lead over UCLA after two rounds with a total of 581 in the
Kent Youel Invitational at Kapolei Golf course, Hawaii yesterday.
Musselburgh's Vikki Laing, who has led her team to victory on two
occasions this season already, is in 23rd position with scores of
74 and 78 for 152, but credit for their No 1 position must go to
her four team mates who all figure in the top ten. Lyndsey Devenish
(Cruden Bay and University of San Francisco) is best Scot, with
two 75's and fellow team-mate Susie Laing (The Ladies Golf Club,
Troon) is tied for 38th with scores of 81 and 74. The University
of San Francisco is currently in joint 7th place. The tournament
concludes with one round today.
McLeary shares in Baylor slump
Jamie McLeary dropped out of a tie for third place with a final
round of four-over-par 76 in the Baylor Invitational men's college
tournament at Bear Ridge Golf Club, Texas. Scotland international
player McLeary from Scotlandwell and a member at Glenrothes finished
in joint 13th place on 214 after earlier rounds of 66 and 72. McLeary
is a golf scholarship student at the host college, Baylor, who lost
their second-round lead to finish second in the team event, two
strokes behind Southern Methodist Union whose leading player Brock
Mulder won the individual medal with 204 (66, 67 and 71). Baylor
has finished in the top five in its own tournament for 15 seasons
in a row but there was disappointment that a leading position was
squandered over the final 18 holes.
