UW Men's Golfers Head to Dallas on a Roll
Oct. 7, 2001
Seattle - Fresh off of a first-place finish at their own fall invitational, the Washington men's golf team returns to action this week at the 14th annual Taylor Made Red River Classic in Dallas. The 15-team tournament will be played at the par-72, 6,766-yard Dallas Athletic Club. The format calls for 36 holes of play on Monday followed by 18 holes on Tuesday.
The Red River Classic is co-hosted by Texas and Oklahoma. Also included in this year's field is Arizona, BYU, Duke, Houston, Kent State, Northwestern, Ohio State, Oklahoma State, Southern California, SMU, Texas A&M and TCU.
USC is the defending Red River Classic champion. Last year the Trojans turned in a 16-under par team score of 848, paced by medalist Hunter Mahan, who was 12-under 204. Washington was 11th in the 15-team field. Gordy Scutt led the Huskies with a 20th place finish after shooting 215.
Scutt leads the Huskies into the tournament after posting back-to-back tournament victories at the Vandal Classic and the Husky Invitational. During his last outing, Scutt posted a final-round score of 70 to win medalist honors and lead Washington to its first win at its own tournament. Scutt finished with a 54-hole score of 5-under 211. That bettered his previous best 54-hole score by seven strokes.
