For the second time this season, the Pac-12 Men’s Golfer of the Month is a Golden Bear. Senior Sebastian Crampton received this recognition for the month of November after his individual win at the Ka’anapali Classic Collegiate Invitational that took place from Nov. 2 to Nov. 4.
This is the first time in his career that Crampton received this honor, and the Ka’anapali Classic was the first time he was an outright winner at an invitational. His mark of 17-under-par was the best of his career and tied the school record for 54 holes, ultimately propelling Cal to an 11-stroke team victory. This was the Bears’ first team victory of the season, and it allowed them to end their fall competition season on a strong note.
Besides this recognition, Crampton is currently ranked No. 38 nationally by Golfweek. He has had 14 top-10 finishes in his college career and seems to be playing some of his best golf this season. His 70.20 stroke average is the lowest of his career, and he has had two top-three finishes so far this season. He looks to continue this strong start to his season when the men’s golf team returns to competition in February.
“Being named Pac-12 Men’s Golfer of the Month is a neat honor, and I’m thrilled to have ended the fall on a high note,” Crampton said in a press release. “There are a lot of great players in our conference, so it’s nice see some of my work paying off.”
