Cal State East Bay senior Adam Stone has been named the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Golfer of the Week. Stone was honored for the week of March 29-April 5 and now has won five Golfer of the Week awards in 2016-17, extending his own program record.
The left-hander from Garstang, England continued his remarkable senior campaign, claiming a share of the individual championship at the recent 2017 Mustang Intercollegiate, hosted by Western New Mexico at Palm Valley Golf Club in Goodyear, Arizona.
Stone shot three straight under-par rounds, highlighted by a second round score of 67 (-5) and finished the 54-hole event at 206 (-10) forcing a one-hole playoff with Colorado School of Mines' George Markham, which also resulted in a tie.
Overall, the reigning CCAA Individual Medalist tallied 15 birdies and was one under par in par-3 scoring, two under in par-4 scoring, and seven under in par-5 scoring. With one tournament remaining in the regular season, he leads the CCAA and ranks No. 10 in the nation with a 71.58 scoring average.
As a team, the Cal State East Bay Pioneers finished second (855, -9) in a strong field at the Mustang Invitational behind BYU-Hawaii. They climbed three spots in the final round, carding a season-best total score of 279 (-9) to close out tournament.
In his four-year career Stone has earned seven CCAA Golfer of the Week awards and five individual tournament titles. He now appears to be headed toward a third straight appearance on the All-CCAA team.
