Cal, Crampton Sweep Titles at Ka’anapali

Sebastian Crampton, who claimed the individual title, and his California teammate Collin Morikawa both shot 8-under-par 63 in the final round and led he Golden Bears to an 11-stroke victory over North Florida in the Ka’anapali Classic at Ka’anapali Golf Course in Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii.

Cal claimed its first title of the season with a score of 266-275-264—805, 47-under-par, followed by North Florida at 278-266-272—816, Oklahoma at 275-278-264—817, while UCLA totaled 272-284-269—825 to tie for fourth with Clemson, which finished at 262-292-271—825.

“I’m so proud of this team,” Cal Coach Walter Chun said. “It’s been an up-and-down fall season but to finish it with a win validates all their hard work. We started off slow today, and North Florida had made birdies and passed us. But the guys stayed patient and just went lights out on the back nine.

“To have one player shoot 63 in a final round is huge, but to have both Sebastian and Collin do it is a testament to their character and just how much they wanted it for the team.”

Georgia was sixth at 268-282-277—827, followed by South Carolina at 271-279-280—830, while Boise State shot 271-294-270—835 to tie for eighth with West Virginia, which wound up at 271-280-284—835, and Kansas was 10th at 290-275-274—839.

Sacramento State finished 16th at 283-300-282—865.

Crampton earned the second victory of his career by shooting 66-67-63—196, 17-under-par, while Quade Cummins of Oklahoma was second at 67-66-65—198, followed by Morikawa at 66-70-63—199, Riley Casey of Oklahoma at 67-70-64—201 and Andrew Alligood of North Florida at 69-63-70—202.

“I played solid golf all week,” said Crampton, a redshirt senior from Pacific Grove who went birdie-birdie-eagle on the fifth through seventh holes and birdie-birdie-birdie-eagle on Nos. 11-14. “I did a great job of staying patient and not forcing the birdies to come during my final round.

“The final round was extremely important for us because we have not played our best in final rounds this fall. Obviously we found something today, and we’re going to take a lot of confidence into the spring and beyond.”

Scott Stevens of South Carolina totaled 64-70-69—203 to tie for sixth with Turk Pettit of Clemson, who finished at 65-74-64—203, and Patrick Welch of Oklahoma, who wound up at 67-69-67—203.

Bryan Wiyang Teoh led UCLA in a tie for 11th at 68-72-65—205 and Joe Fowler of Sacramento State tied for 42nd at 65-76-70—211.
