OSU Finishes 16th At Western Intercollegiate
April 8, 2003
SANTA CRUZ, Calif. - -
For the second day in a row, Oregon State struggled with its approach shots as the men's golf team had to settle for 16th at the Western Intercollegiate with a final round 307.
The Beavers shot 911 for the tournament at the par-70 Pasatiempo Golf Course, which is known for its slick, undulated greens.
'We just continued to put the ball in the wrong places and weren't able to get up and down,' OSU coach Brian Watts said. 'We flat out just didn't get the job done. We struggled with the putter and from the fairway in.'
For the seventh time in nine tournaments, Michael Jurgensen led the Beavers with a tie for 39th. His 75 in the final round gave him an 8-over 224 for the tournament.
UCLA claimed the tournament title with a 15-over 855, beating UC-Irvine by seven strokes. The Bruins' Steve Conway came away with a 1-shot victory over Pacific's Matt Hansen in the medalist race, shooting 208.
OSU plays in the ASU Thunderbird Invitational this Friday and Saturday.
