Team set for CordeValle Tourney & David Chung returns from World Amateur

CordeValle GC in San Martin, CA
The 6-man team is set for the upcoming Gifford Collegiate tournament being played nearby at CordeValle  in San Martin, CA.  This event will mark the 2010 debut of Stanford's All-American and US Amateur runner-up  David Chung, who just returned from Buenos Aires and the World Amateur where he represented the US on its 3-person team.  CordeValle GC was the site of a recent PGA Tour event won by Rocco Mediate.  Live tournament scoring by GolfStat is available.

The 6-man team includes Andrew Yun, David Chung, Steve Ziegler, Cameron Wilson, Sihwan Kim and Shane Lebow.  The team selection came as a result of a two-round qualifier and 3 coaches selections.  Here are the results of the recent qualifier:

1.  Sihwan Kim - 74-72 = 146
2.  Andrew Yun 71-76 = 147
3.  Cameron Wilson 73-75 = 148
3.  Shane Lebow 75-73 = 148
5.  Steve Ziegler 76-73 = 149
6.  Graham Brockington 75-76 = 151
7.  Steven Kearney 78-76 = 154
8.  Andre DeDecker 75-80 = 155
9.  Wilson Bowen 76-82 = 158

All-American David Chung makes his 2010 debut -- David Chung did not compete as he was returning from the World Amateur  being played in Buenos Aires where he helped the US finish in 3rd place behind France and Denmark.  David tied for 9th individually with rounds of 73-70-73 in tough conditions with pouring rain in much of the tournament.  Congratulations David on your selection and top play in this outstanding event.  Here are complete scores from the World Amateur.  |  The event's website can be found here.  |  Golf Week had excellent coverage of the event and David's outstanding 2nd round in pouring rain was chronicled in this article.
