UCLA Lands Two Players on 2007 GCAA All-America Team

June 6, 2007

The UCLA men's golf program landed two players on the Golf Coaches Assn. of America's 2007 All-America Team, the association announced Wednesday.

Junior Kevin Chappell, an honorable mention selection in 2006, earned 2nd Team GCAA All-America honors and sophomore Lucas Lee earned 3rd team acclaim. During Coach O.D. Vincent's five-year tenure, a total of seven different players have earned All-America honors from the coaches association.

Since February, Chappell strung together seven consecutive Top 20 finishes, and placed among the Top 10 in seven of his last nine events. He won two tournaments during that span -- the John Hayt Collegiate and the Oregon Duck Invitational -- and tied for second at the NCAA West Regional. He tied for 20th at the NCAA Championship on June 2. He completed the season ranked 13th nationally by GolfWeek.

Lee also won twice this season, capturing titles at the Cal State Bakersfield Spring Invitational in February and at the Southern Highlands Collegiate in March. He has won four individual titles in two seasons, a team leader. He tied for 22nd at the NCAAs and finished the season ranked 22nd in the country.

In other UCLA golf news, only former All-American Duffy Waldorf managed to gain alternate status into the 107th U.S. Open Championship at Oakmont Country Club, June 14-17. Waldorf posted rounds of 66-72--138 at the Colonial Country Club in Memphis on Monday. The other 10 UCLA-affiliated players, including 1995 U.S. Open champion Corey Pavin, failed to make the cut at various sites nationwide.
