DAVIS, California (Dec. 8, 2014) -- Former UCLA
NFL quarterback Drew Olson and partner David
Reneker advanced through sectional qualifying in
playoff at Del Paso CC on Monday to grab one of
available spots, firing a 6-under 65. Olson, 31, is
of UCLA's all-time passing leaders; Reneker, 46,
member of the Bruins golf team.
After posting their score and thinking they
made it into the field easily (38 of 52 teams had
posted and none had scored better) Olson and
Reneker retired to the Del Paso bar and were
into their second beer when they found out they
needed to lace up the shoes again.
They defeated Gary Dunn and Jon Peterson
the fourth playoff to gain the last spot. Olson
birdies to halve the first and third holes, while
Reneker sealed the deal with a 15-foot birdie on
fourth hole. The U.S. Four Ball will be each
second USGA event -- Olson qualified for the
Mid-Am while Reneker did the same in 2009.
Chico State golfers Alistair Docherty and Lee
Gearhart earned medalist honors at 8-under 63,
while Scott Colby and Gary Deblaquiere of
Bay, paired in the same late foursome as
and Gearhart, shot 64 and also advanced.
