Bruins Win Western Intercollegiate Title

April 8, 2003

The 10th ranked UCLA men's golf team won its fourth tournament title of the season and junior Steve Conway won his second individual title in a month at the 57th Western Intercollegiate at Pasatiempo Golf Course near Santa Cruz.

'The Western Intercollegiate is the oldest golf tournament on the West Coast. It has a long list of prestigious team and individual champions, and we are proud to be a part of its championship history,' said Coach O.D. Vincent. 'Pasatiempo is an unbelievable golf course. Our players were very patient and they fought all day to win this tournament.'

In the final round, the Bruins posted a team score of 292, 12-over par, for a 54-hole score of 855, seven shots in front of second place UC Irvine. Texas-El Paso placed third at 868, followed by Oregon at 869 and Pacific at 870.

Conway, who won the Cleveland Classic in March, captured his second career tournament title by one shot over Pacific's Matt Hanson. The Newport Beach native played the final 36 holes in four-under par and finished with a two-under par total of 208. He recorded three birdies and two bogeys for a final round score of 69.

'The course was really challenging,' said Conway. 'I've played [Alister] MacKenzie courses before, and this was a very good layout. The key was being able to putt well on the undulating greens.

'I shot a good score yesterday [67 in the second round] and was able to keep it going today,' he continued.

The Bruins' John Merrick finished 13th at 216 after a final round 76 and junior Roy Moon tied for 14th at 217 after an even par round of 70 on Wednesday. Travis Johnson tied for 20th at 219 and freshman John Poucher tied for 44th at 225.

UTEP's Dan Swanson placed third at even par 210, followed by three players in a tie for fourth at 211.

The Bruins next event will be the ASU/Thunderbird Invitational this weekend in Tempe, AZ.
