HEAD COACH - DEREK FREEMAN All-America certificates. He has tutored a pair of Nicklaus Award winners, one Mickelson Award recipient and one Hogan Award winner. In addition to coaching Chappell, who won the NCAA individual title, he has coached two players who have won NCAA Regional crowns. Overall, 10 players have won 17 individual tournament titles under his watch. Two players — Chappell and Cantlay — have been named Pac-10 Player of the Year under his direction and two have earned Pac-10 Freshman of the Year. Twelve players have received 22 all-conference certificates. In 2009-10, Freeman’s team entered the NCAA Championship with the youngest lineup in the tournament. He led the Bruins to a 16th place finish, a final ranking of ninth in the national poll and two team victories. Two players earned AllAmerica honorable mention honors from the coaches association and four players earned All-Pac-10 acclaim. In addition, Kim emerged as one of the most improved players in the country vaulting from 438th in the rankings his freshman year to 41st as a sophomore. In 2008-09, despite the loss of three talented players during the season, Freeman managed to guide the Bruins to their seventh straight NCAA Championship berth. he also guided UCLA to its third NCAA Regional title in program history. In addition, Main was voted Pac-10 Freshman of the Year and senior Erik Flores became the only player in school history to earn First-Team All-Pac-10 honors three times. Flores also earned All-America honors for the third time in his career. The Bruins won the 2008 NCAA title by one stroke over defending champion Stanford at Purdue’s Kampen Course on the last day of May. A key par by Chappell on the 72nd hole clinched the victory, but it was Chappell’s bogey save from a disastrous lie at the 71st that enabled the Bruins to maintain a slim lead. Freeman kept his star player level-headed and positive, and coaxed his other senior — Craig Leslie — into playing the final three holes in one-under par to win the title. In the succeeding days, Chappell collected some awards that had UCLA historians creating new mantle space. He became the first UCLA golfer in the 75-year history of the program to win the NCAA individual championship and the Nicklaus award. He also became just the third player in school history to earn consensus first-team All-America honors, and the first since 1985. A month before the season ended, Chappell became the sixth UCLA player to earn Pac-10 Golfer of the Year honors. Freeman claimed one other All-American — Flores, who also won his first collegiate individual title. In addition, both Chappell and Flores were selected First-Team All-Pac-10. A former all-conference golfer at the University of Oklahoma, Freeman made an immediate impact on the UCLA program soon after his appointment on July 16, 2007. Through the 2007 Fall campaign, the Bruins did not lose a tournament, winning the Big Ten/Pac-10 Challenge, the Collegiate Match Play Championship and the CordeValle Collegiate. The Bruins finished his first half season ranked No.2 in the nation. In the November signing period, Freeman inked the nation’s No. 2 ranked group of recruits as judged by GolfWeek. The list included two AJGA All-Americans and one of Mexico’s top amateurs. Four months later, he added another AJGA AllAmerican to that list.

In 2007-08, the Bruins won five tournaments, a figure that ranks fifth in school history. UCLA also won its first-ever Collegiate Match Play Championship. In that event, Chappell and freshman Philip Francis posted records of 4-0-0. During the season, four players won five individual tournament titles, including Chappell who won twice and ended the season 20-under par through 34 rounds. Chappell also set a single season school record at the time by averaging 71.0 strokes per round and ended his career ranked fifth in school history with five career victories. Finally, he was the only player under par at the 2008 NCAA Tournament. In his first year, 2006-07, as the Bruins’ assistant coach, Freeman coached the UCLA Blue Team, which won the Cougar Invitational and and the Cal State Bakersfield Spring Invitational. Senior Chris Heintz won the Cougar event, and at the Bakersfield tournament, the Blue Team scorched the course for a score of 25-under par with sophomore Lucas Lee capturing medalist honors at 14-under par. Eight years ago, Freeman spent the season as Oklahoma’s men’s assistant coach. In 2005-06, the Sooners finished 29th at the NCAA Championship after placing seventh in the NCAA Central Regional. Oklahoma also won its first Big 12 Conference team title since Freeman’s sophomore year as all five players finished among the Top 15 individuals. Prior to his appointment at OU, Freeman served the previous three seasons (2002-05) at Oklahoma City University. As an assistant coach for the men’s and women’s programs (2002-03), he helped lead OCU to 14 combined titles, including the men’s 2003 NAIA Championship. Following the 2003 season, Freeman was promoted to head coach of the OCU women’s program and guided the Stars to their second straight runner-up finish at the NAIA Championship. In his second season, 2004-05, OCU captured the NAIA women’s national championship and Freeman was named the NAIA National Coach of the Year. The team set a championship record with a 49-stroke victory. In two seasons as the OCU women’s coach, Freeman mentored eight All-Americans and seven academic All-Americans. Twice he was voted the NAIA Region VI Women’s Golf Coach of the Year (2004 and 2005). As a player at OU, Freeman enjoyed a fine career, serving as the Sooners’ captain for three seasons (1992-94). During his collegiate career, he earned All-Big Eight honors in 1994 and All-Big Eight academic honors in 1993. Freeman was a two-time Bruce Drake Award winner for most improved player and won OU’s Jim Begwin Award for leadership and sportsmanship. Overall, Freeman played in four Big Eight Conference Championships, including the 1992 event in which the Sooners won their first-ever league title. He also participated in four NCAA Regional events and four NCAA Championship tournaments. Of his 51 collegiate appearances, he finished in the Top 30 25 times. He received his degree in Economics from OU in 1994 and later played two years on the Canadian, Mexican and Nike Tours. A rib injury forced him to change careers, and he worked in the financial services industry for five years prior to entering the coaching ranks. Freeman, his wife Stephenie and their two sons live in the Santa Clarita Valley.

ASSISTANT COACH BRANDON CHRISTIANSON

BRANDON CHRISTIANSON ASSISTANT COACH • 2ND YEAR • UCLA ‘09

Brandon Christianson (UCLA ‘09) was named the Bruins’ assistant coach on Aug. 9, 2012. He begins his second season as the Bruins’ full-time assistant coach under Derek Freeman. After earning four varsity letters for the Bruins from 2005-08, Christianson served one season as the Bruins’ Undergraduate Assistant Coach while completing his degree in History in 2009. He returned to Westwood after working on the PGA Tour as a caddie for three years (2010-12), most recently with UCLA alumnus Kevin Chappell. “We’re very fortunate to have Brandon as our full-time assistant coach,” said Freeman. “His experience caddying for Kevin Chappell and Jason Gore is exactly the type of on-course expertise from which our players can benefit. “Also, as a recent UCLA graduate, he knows precisely what we expect from our student-athletes both on and off the course,” Freeman continued. “And, having been a member of a national as championship team, he realizes the tremendous amount of dedication required to achieve that goal.”

As Freeman’s chief assistant some of his main duties include organizing the annual Gifford Collegiate Championship, hosted by UCLA. In addition, he plans and runs practices, mentors players and serves as the one of the Bruins’ designated coaches at all tournaments. He also works at the annual UCLA golf camps, teaching young golfers the fundamentals of the game as well as managing many aspects of the camp operation. In his four seasons on the team, Christianson played 57 career rounds and averaged 74.5 with a 93% counter ratio. He also recorded 10 Top 10 results, 18 Top 20s, 14 rounds below par and five rounds below 70. In his second collegiate round as a freshman in 2005, he fired a team-best 66 (-6), which became his best collegiate score. In 2008, in his final collegiate round, he fired a 68 (-4) to tie for 19th at the Wyoming Cowboy Classic. That season, the Bruins won the NCAA title. At Valencia High School, he earned four varsity letters and twice was the Foothill League MVP. In a conference championship tournament in 2004, he fired a league record score of 65 at Harding Park. In the 2003 CIF Southern Section playoffs, he blistered Soule Park GC for a 10-under par round of 62, considered to be the lowest round ever by a high school player in Southern California. Christianson, 27, is single and lives in Valencia.

1988 NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP SUMMARY In 1988, the Bruins won their first NCAA golf team championship at North Ranch Country Club in Thousand Oaks, CA. On the final day of the tournament, UCLA, 13 shots behind the leader, rallied for one of the great comebacks in NCAA golf history. The Bruins shot a one-under par 287 over the final 18 holes to win the national championship by three shots over Texas-El Paso. The Bruins’ Brandt Jobe fired a final round three-under par 69 to record a one-under par 72-hole score of 287 and finish in a tie for second place. Jobe’s Kevin Leach finish was the best individual finish ever by a UCLA golfer in the NCAA Championship. Although no other Bruin finished among the Top 20, clutch performances, especially on the final day, produced one of the most memorable championship moments in UCLA history.

2008 NCAA CHAMPIONS S

enior Kevin Chappell made a par on the 18th hole to give UCLA a one-shot victory on May 31, 2008 at the 111th NCAA Men’s Golf Championship, hosted by Purdue at its Kampen Course in West Lafayette, Ind.

Chappell won the individual title and led the fourth-ranked Bruins to their first men’s golf title since 1988. He finished at 2-under 286 and was the only player in the field under par for the event. He became the first UCLA player to win NCAA medalist honors. “The feeling I have right now is better than anything,” said Chappell. “To win individually is great, but it becomes even more special because the team also won. I can’t say enough about this team. All season long we’ve always been there to pick each other up and that’s what championship teams do.” In the third round, Chappell made a round-saving bogey from kneehigh rough at the 18th hole. That score helped him post a cool 68 (-4) and assume first place entering the final round. At the time, he called it “the best bogey of my life.” He amended that statement on May 31 with a bogey that preserved the Bruins’ national championship. At the 71st hole, a 230-yard par 3 over water, Chappell dumped his tee shot in the hazard. His third shot from the drop area skirted 22 paces past the hole -- almost a certain double-bogey. “I knew he could get it up and down from there,” said Head Coach Derek Freeman. “I figured we’d take [a] five and move on to 18.” The two-time All-American chipped it in. “That was the best bogey of my entire life,” he said. Chappell had struggled most of the week at the 18th. In the second round, he came to the brutish 484-yard par 4 at one-under par. A double-bogey gave him a 73 (+1). His bogey there in the third round prevented him from carding a 67 (-5). And in the final round, he knew a par would preserve the Bruins’ precarious one-shot lead and their championship dreams. His tee shot found the fairway, leaving him 189 yards to the green. His second shot landed 20 feet above the hole. He barely missed making a birdie, but tapped in for par before the entire UCLA entourage charged the green to embrace their senior leader. “This is huge for our school which prides itself on national championships,” said Freeman. “Now, I want to figure out how to get better because I sure like this feeling.” Senior Craig Leslie’s birdies at the 16th and 18th holes proved crucial to the Bruins’ title hopes, as well as key par saves on the final holes by junior Erik Flores and freshman Philip Francis. The championship was the third won by the Bruins in the month of May, 2008. On Mother’s Day the women’s water polo team won its fourth consecutive national championship, and on May 20, the women’s tennis team won its first team title. These three titles gave UCLA a total of 103, a national leader. For complete scores, please see next page. Previous page (top): The Bruins hoist the team trophy.

FRIENDS OF GOLF

T

he Friends of Golf (FOG) organization has been a fixture of financial support for the UCLA golf program and collegiate and youth golf nationwide for more than three decades. The origins of this group come from former UCLA Athletics Hall of Fame golf coach Eddie Merrins, who served as Bel Air’s head professional for nearly 40 years. Under his active leadership, the UCLA golf program has developed into one of the most successful in the country. To implement that program, Merrins pioneered the FOG organization to aid in fundraising activities for college and youth golf programs. FOG was incorporated in 1981 as a non-profit organization and has drawn enthusiasm from many prominent professionals in the business and sports communities. The annual FOG event is highlighted by an elaborate golf tournament and dinner held at Bel Air Country Club. Luminaries such as Dinah Shore, Digger Phelps, Rick Pitino, David Wolper and Richard Crenna distinguished the tournament in 1991. Highlighting the 10th annual tournament was the legendary Jack Nicklaus. Each year, FOG honors a member of the PGA Tour, which has enabled Friends of Golf to endow the Golf Scholarship Fund at UCLA. The late, legendary golfer Byron Nelson called the annual FOG event, “The best one-day golf tournament in the country.” At right is a list of the past honorees: Jack Nicklaus was the honoree at the 1991 FOG tournament.
