California beats Arizona State in NCAA golf championship

MILTON, Ga. (AP) - Top-seeded California survived a quarterfinal scare from Pac-12 rival Arizona State on Friday to advance to the semifinals in the NCAA golf championship.

Brandon Hage birdied No. 18 after a nearly perfect approach to give the Bears a 3-2 victory and a spot in the semifinals against Illinois. The fifth-seeded Illini beat defending champion Texas 3-2.

Host Georgia Tech will face Alabama, the 2012 runner-up, in the other semifinal at the Capital City Club's Crabapple Course north of Atlanta. The second-seeded Yellow Jackets needed a birdie from Ollie Schneiderjans on an extra hole to edge UNLV 3-2, while third-seeded Alabama topped New Mexico 4-1.
