Cal Bears win Alister MacKenzie Invitational

The Cal Bears men's golf team, which makes Metropolitan Golf Links its home, took top honors at the Alister MacKenzie Invitational in Fairfield earlier this month. The Bears were led by Michael Wilson. Congrats!

FAIRFAX, CALIF. - Led by individual champion Michael Wilson, the California men's golf team shot an impressive 26-under three round score of 826 to win the fifth annual Alister MacKenzie Invitational Tuesday at the Meadow Club in Fairfax, Calif. The Golden Bears, who captured the Alister MacKenzie last season and in 2003 as well, outscored second place San Jose State (842, -10), and third place Oregon State (848, -4). Individually, Wilson, who was a member of Cal's 2004 National Championship squad, led the tournament the entire way with an 11-under 202 after shooting rounds of 65, 67 and 70. He also tied a school record with his third career individual tournament title, having won the Mid-Pines Tournament in Greensboro, N.C. as a freshman in the fall of 2002, the CordeValle Classic last fall, and now the Alister MacKenzie in 2006.
