San Diego State's Alex Kang is the individual leader after shooting a nine-under par 62 first round but two Cal players are close behind as Ben Homa and Ben An fired collegiate career-best rounds of eight-under par 63 and six-under par 65 to sit in second and tied for third place, respectively. Two other Cal golfers - Stephen Hale and Michael Weaver - are tied for ninth after four-under par opening rounds of 67, while Eric Mina (T57th, 72, +1) is also competing for the Bears.

Cal is coming off a victory in its last tournament at The Prestige at PGA WEST and was third at the Windon Memorial Classic prior to that.

Last year, Cal took the title for the fourth time in the first eight years of the tournament in a rain-shortened 36-hole event as inclement weather on the second and final scheduled day forced the cancellation of the last 18 holes for the first time in the history of the event. Shouldn't be a problem this year with high temps expected to be in the 70's and very little chance of rain.
