The last time the Cal men's golf team made it to the NCAA National Championships, it brought home the trophy.
This year, it finished 22 spots off of its 2004 run to the title.
The Bears steadily dropped in the standings through the weekend's three rounds at The Honors Course in Ooltewah, Tenn.
The par-72, 7,395-yard course in suburban Chattanooga saw Cal end the opening round last Tuesday in 15th place, with Eric Mina and Brandon Hagy both shooting even-par 72 to pace the Bears. A six-over par second round dropped Cal into 20th.
After all 54 holes, it was Michael Weaver who led Cal with a one-over 217 that put him in 41st. The freshman's performance had improved by two strokes after the first round and four after the second.
Illinois' Scott Langley shot a 10-under 206 to win the individual championship last Thursday. Augusta State captured its first-ever team title yesterday after entering stroke play as the No. 9 seed.
