Men's Golf In Seventh At Ping/ Arizona Intercollegiate

Jan. 29, 2001

SABINO SPRINGS, Ariz. - - The Oregon State men's golf squad is in seventh place after one complete round of the Ping/Arizona Intercollegiate. The Beavers shot a combined 8-over-par 292 in the morning round, but USC held the lead at 276. Play was suspended due to darkness after 15 holes of the second round, and will be completed on Tuesday morning, prior to the final 18 holes.

Senior Anthony Arvidson shot a 1-over-par 72 at The Raven at Sabino Springs, which plays to 6,900 yards. Arvidson continued his consistent play from the fall season - during which he averaged 72.7 strokes per round - as he went out in 35 and came home in 37 to finish the first round tied for 22nd, and just five shots off the lead.

The rest of Beavers at the tournament are golfers in their first year of action at OSU, with true- freshman David Williams leading the way, as well as redshirt freshman Daren Grieg. The duo fired opening-round 73s, and is tied for 27th.

One shot back of Williams and Grieg are junior college transfer Dave Yarnes and redshirt freshman Sean Deacon, both of whom carded a 74 on Monday morning and are tied for 40th.

The Beavers will look to make up ground on the leaders Tuesday, as only nine shots separate the Beavers from second-place Ohio State, which posted a 1-under 283.

Four golfers are tied for the individual lead after shooting scores of 4-under 67.
