    California, with its sixth victory of the 2012-13 season at the John Burns Intercollegiate, kept a firm grip on its No. 1 ranking in the first Golf World/Nike Golf men's Division I coaches' poll of the spring. The Golden Bears earned 21 of 23 first-place votes and rebounded nicely after suffering their first tournament loss of the season (a third-place showing at the Arizona Intercollegiate).

    Alabama, fresh off its third straight win at the Puerto Rico Classic, moved into the No. 2 spot, claiming the two remaining first-place votes. UCLA, winner at the Amer Ari Invitational to start the spring, rose to No. 3 in the poll.
