Cal’s Limbhasut wins by 1 at Ka’anapali

K.K. Limbhasut of California shot 5-under-par 66 and held off Scott Stevens of South Carolina to win the Ka’anapali Collegiate Classic Invitational by one stroke at Royal Ka’anapali Golf Club in Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii.

Limbhasut, a junior from Loma Linda, collected birdies on the second third and sixth holes before making an eagle on the ninth hole and finishing with nine straight pars.

“I couldn’t ask for a better way to finish my fall season,” said Limbhasut, who claimed his second victory of the Fall Season and fourth of his Cal career. “I feel like my game is trending in the right direction. I had a really good fall and played really well in the last three events, but I still have some parts of my game that I want to sharpen up for spring.

“We had a good fall season but there is still a lot of room to improve in the spring. We know what we have to work on in order to compete for a national title.”

Limbhasut posted a score of 67-68-66—201, 12-under, while Stevens was second at 65-68-69—202, followed by Andy Spencer of Kansas at 68-65-70—203 and Will Miles of South Carolina at 66-72-66—204.
