Gonzalez sweeps California Amateur
Tuesday, June 30, 2009
Cal Poly senior-to-be Geoff Gonzalez got a little revenge on Lake Merced Golf Club in the California Amateur this past week. Gonzalez played the NCAA Division I West Regional at Lake Merced earlier this year; competing as an individual, Gonzalez tied for 57th in the 74-player field.
At the California Amateur, Gonzalez swept the stroke- and match-play portions of the tournament, becoming the 12th player to do so. Gonzalez shared medalist honors with Cal State-Northridge’s Nick Delio, the defending champion.
Delio advanced to the semis before losing to Jeff Wilson, who was looking to add his first state amateur to a sterling resume. Wilson is a three-time medalist at the U.S. Mid-Amateur and four-time U.S. Open participant.
