Husky Golfers Place Third at Duke Classic

Oct. 18, 2004

Durham, NC - The 17th-ranked Washington men's golf team shot 3-under 285 Monday to finish third at the Duke Classic at the Duke Golf Club. Washington's 54-hole score of 12-over 876 was 16 strokes behind the Blue Devils. Duke's team score of 4-under 860 set a record for the event. North Carolina placed second at 873.

Washington's James Lepp and Cody Upham tied for ninth in stroke play at 3-over 219. It was Lepp's best finish in three tournaments at Washington and equaled his best tournament score at UW. He shot 73 during all three rounds. Upham's score was his best as a Husky and it marked his first top-10 finish at UW.

Erik Olson placed 22nd at 222 while Alex Prugh carded UW's best finishing-round score, a 4-under 68, to move up to 25th at 223. Zach Bixler completed the event in 27th place at 224.

North Carolina's Martin Ureta was the individual medalist after coming out on top after a four-man playoff that also featured Duke's Ryan Blaum and Michael Quagliano, along with Michigan State's Matt Harmon. All four players finished the tournament at 6-under 210. Quagliano and Harmon both had pars at the first playoff hole, but Blaum and Ureta had birdie threes. Ureta finally won the playoff with a birdie on the fourth extra hole.

The Huskies next tournament is the inaugural Pac-10/Big Ten Challenge at Bandon Dunes Oct. 25-26. Washington will be without Lepp for the two-day competition. He will be competing for Canada at the World Amateur Team Championships in Puerto Rico. Lepp, from Abbotsford, B.C., is one of three Canadians in the tournament that features teams from 67 countries.
