Conway and Johnson to Compete in All-America Tournament

Oct. 22, 2003

Seniors Steve Conway and Travis Johnson will represent UCLA in the 29th Annual Western Refining College All-America Golf Classic at historic El Paso Country Club, Nov. 23-25.

The 29-player field features seven Palmer Cup players and three Walker Cup players, as well as 2001 Golf Classic champion Brad Heaven of the University of Toledo. Three players plus Heaven will be making their third straight appearance in the event.

For Conway and Johnson the 2003 College All-America Golf Classic marks their first appearance. Senior John Merrick competed last year and tied for 21st. Merrick, who earned All-America honors in 2003 by tying for 16th place at the NCAA Championships, was invited to play this year, but declined in favor of his teammates.

Conway, who won the 2003 Alister Mackenzie Classic for his third collegiate title, was named a Second Team All-American last season. He won two tournaments as a junior and led the Bruins in scoring average.

Johnson, who tied for 19th at the 2003 NCAA Championships to earn Honorable Mention All-America honors, also earned Academic All-America honors from the GCAA.

"We're extremely proud to have Steve and Travis representing UCLA in this tournament," said Head Coach O.D. Vincent, who tied for fourth at this event in 1988. "In the future, we hope to make the College Classic an annual tradition for the All-Americans in our program."

Including Merrick, seven former UCLA All-Americans have competed in the annual event: Chuck White (1978), Corey Pavin (1979, '81), Jay Delsing (1982), Duffy Waldorf (1984) and Rob Sullivan (1989).

One-thousand dollars is donated to each school's general scholarship fund for each player participating in the tournament. Each school is limited to two players.
