Greg Hanson in the Arizona Daily Star writes:
The most meaningful accomplishment in UA golf history, connected to those who played for the Wildcats, could be Annika Sorenstam's ascension as the world's leading female player. But it is not.
You might choose to nominate Jim Furyk for his victory at the U.S. Open, or Don Pooley for winning the U.S. Senior Open.
How about Eric Meeks' triumph at the 1988 U.S. Amateur, or that of Ricky Barnes at the 2003 U.S. Amateur?Close, but no.
Today in Idaho, former UA golfer Jason Gore is playing in the Nationwide Tour's Boise Open, which, if you are asking for perspective, is the triumph of his career as a man and as a golfer.
Not to quibble, but uh, Jason Gore transferred and led another school to an NCAA title.
That might explain why Hanson called on the former golf beat writer for a quote instead of UA coach Rick LaRose to back up the assertion that it's the "most meaningful moment in UA golf history."
