Mackenzie Leads Husky Golfers to Title

Sept. 30, 2003

Bremerton, WA - Fielding a lineup that included three freshmen playing their first collegiate tournament, the Washington men's golf team shot 4-under 356 during the final day of play to win the Opus NW Husky Invitational. The Huskies finished the 54-hole event at 7-over 1087, 21 strokes better than second-place San Diego State. The tournament featured six-man teams with the top five scores counting toward the team total.

Husky senior All-American Brock Mackenzie posted his third straight sub-par round to run away with medalist honors. Mackenzie shot 4-under 68 on Tuesday to win the event by seven strokes at 8-under 208. San Diego State's Cory Segall and California's Scott Carlyle tied for second at 215.

The win was the fourth in Mackenzie's career, making him the all-time event winner in Washington history. He was tied with current UCLA coach O.D. Vincent.

'O.D. is someone I really respect, so it is exciting to go ahead of him, but it's not something I have spent a lot of time thinking about,' Mackenzie said. 'I'm more excited with my teammates really coming through today. We shot four under as a team, counting five scores. That was awesome.'

Washington's final round included a 71 by senior Corey Prugh, even par scores by Cody Upham and Erik Olson and a 73 by Alex Prugh. Dan Potter's 75 was the score the Huskies threw out. Washington was the only team to post an under-par team round during the tournament.

Olson tied for fifth overall at 2-over 218. Potter and Alex Prugh tied for 19th at 6-over 222.

'Anytime you shoot under par on a tough course like this, you're going to be pleased,' Mackenzie said. 'My driving and my irons were solid. I only made three putts outside of 10 feet all week. I hit 16 greens every single round. On a tough golf course, when you shoot that, you're going to be all right.

'It was vintage Brock Mackenzie,' said Husky coach Matt Thurmond. 'He didn't make any mistakes. There was nothing too amazing, just solid shot-after-shot play. It was a great way for him to start his season. I think he's going to win more tournaments this year and that's also his expectation.'

Washington entered Tuesday's final round with a nine-stroke lead over Oregon State. The Beavers shot 20-over 380, their worst round of the event, to fade back to seventh place. UCLA, ranked third in the nation, finished third at 31-over 1111. BYU and Washington State tied for fourth at 37-over 1117. California, ranked fourth in the latest Golfweek standings, was sixth at 1119.
