The Cal men’s golf team opened the 2000-01 season with a seventh-place finish at the Topy Cup at the Tanagura Country Club in Japan.
Tohoku Fukushi of Japan won the 11-team competition, which featured four U.S. collegiate teams.
Individually, senior Dong Yi, in his first competition for the Bears after taking a redshirt year last season, tied for 12th. After shooting an opening-round 76, he came back with a pair of 71s for a three-round total of 218 (+2).
Unfortunately for Cal, no other player broke par in any round. Freshman Jayme Berkowitz opened with a 72, but finished tied for 37th with a 228 total. Walter Chun, who started with a 79, finished 73-72 to complete the tournament tied for 26th (224).
The Bears return to action Sept. 25-26 for the Husky Invitational in Seattle.

Cal heads to the Farm this weekend not to face their conference foe, the Cardinal, but to face a less familiar adversary in Northeastern University. The Huskies represent the America East Conference. Although a perennial field hockey powerhouse, Northeastern went through a rebuilding phase last year and finished 8-12.
The Huskies are still a young team with only two seniors returning in forwards Krisanne Duchemin and Jenn Foley. Rounding out the Husky line-up are eight freshmen, seven sophomores and only three juniors. Northeastern comes to the West Coast after a 2-1 win over UMass, evening their overall record to 1-1. Cal is 0-1 all-time versus Northeastern, losing 3-1 in 1986.
