April 13, 2003
Tempe, Ariz. - The USC men's golf team shot a blistering 273 on Saturday on its way to a second-place finish at the ASU Thunderbird Invitational held at Karsten Golf Course.
A check of records indicate that the Trojans' total of 832 (32 under par) is the lowest score ever by a USC squad after 54 holes.
Troy finished 12 strokes back of tourney champion Arizona State, which shot a tournament-record 824. Pepperdine was third (835), TCU was fourth (836) and Oklahoma was fifth (840).
Senior David Oh had his finest performance as a Trojan, shooting a career-low 204--including rounds of 68 and 66--to finish second, three strokes behind individual champion David Schultz (201).
Freshman Taylor Wood continued his fine play of late, shooting a career-best 207--including rounds of 68 and 66--to finish tied for seventh.
The Trojans are next in action at the Pac-10 Championships in Glendale, Calif., on April 28-30. USC will be vying for its third-straight conference crown.
