Husky Golfer's Rally Falls Short at Oregon Invitational

March 27, 2001

Eugene, OR - San Diego State's John Lieber pared the 18th hole, while Washington's John Robertson bogeyed to give the Aztecs a one-stroke win Tuesday at the 2001 Oregon Duck Invitational, played at the 6,854-yard, par-72 Eugene Country Club. The Aztecs entered the day with an eight-stroke lead over the Huskies and gave all of them back until Robertson's bogey. Washington was the defending tournament champion.

Washington's team score of 288 was the lowest round during Tuesday's play. Robertson's score of 71 allowed him to move up to sixth place after entering the final round tied for 12th. Corey Prugh fired his third straight round of 73 to tie for ninth place with a 54-hole total of 219. Will McCurdy and Derek Berg, playing as individual competitors, also shot 219. Conner Robbins carded a 1-under 71 to finish in a tie for 16th with a score of 220.

Playing in a constant rain and drizzle Tuesday morning, only eight players broke par, but the poor weather did not overshadow a brilliant tournament by individual medalist Jeff Wood of UC Santa Barbara. The only golfer to finish at par or better for all three rounds, Wood used his long drives off the tee to fire a 72-67-71 for a 6-under 210 that earned the 6-5, 270-pounder his first collegiate tournament title.

The Gaucho senior sealed the victory with birdies on two if his final four holes and ended the day three strokes better that Colorado State,s Martin Laird, who had an even-par 72 Tuesday and finished the tournament at 213.

Washington returns to action April 2 when the Huskies compete at the Western Intercollegiate in Santa Cruz, Calif.
