The top-ranked Cal men's golf team completed the first unbeaten fall season in school history Tuesday with a two-stroke win at the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational in Windermere, Fla.
The Bears' Michael Kim (73, 4-under 212) won his first collegiate individual title.
Cal posted rounds of 284, 295 and 289 for a 4-over 868 at the par-72, 7,544-yard Isleworth Golf & Country Club. New Mexico (286—870) finished second, and Alabama (285—873) took third.
The victory was the fifth in a row for Cal to open the 2012-13 campaign.
"This was NCAA Championship type stuff with a great field and a great golf course," coach Steve Desimone said.
Kim parred the par-four 18th hole to beat New Mexico's James Erkenbeck (71) and Alabama's Justin Thomas (70) by a stroke.
Cal's Michael Weaver (71—215) finished fourth and was the only other player under par for the tournament.
Cal returns to action Jan. 28-29 for the Arizona Intercollegiate at Arizona National in Tucson.
