College golfer wins 4th ÔGolfer of the WeekÕ award
Submitted By Stephen Connolly, California State University, East Bay
Adam Stone, a senior at California State University, East Bay has nabbed a Golfer of the Week award from the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA). The award is for the week of Feb. 22-28. Stone led the universityÕs Pioneers to two recent tournament championships. The team ran away with first place at their home tournament, the Tim Tierney Pioneer Shootout, and later rallied in the final round for another title at the East-West Bay Area Invitational.
The Garstang, England native was runner-up at the Pioneer Shootout with a 54-hole total of 210 (-3) at Hiddenbrooke Golf Club in Vallejo. He was one of three Pioneers in the top three individually, as teammate Owen Hutchison captured the individual medal at 208 (-5).
Stone played even better a few days later at Wente Vineyards in Livermore. He took the individual medal at 209 (-7) with a final round card that was perhaps the best of his decorated career. He turned in a 66 (-6) with six birdies and 12 pars.
Last week, Stone did what he does about as well as any golfer in the nation -- make pars. He led the entire field in pars in both tournaments, and over his final 46 holes of the week, he did not record a single bogey.
Stone is the reigning CCAA Individual Champion and has now captured a program record four CCAA Golfer of the Week awards this season. He currently leads all players in the conference with a 71.10 scoring average for the season.
