Bruins Win The Prestige
Oct. 18, 2005
Tenth-ranked UCLA won its second straight tournament title at The Prestige at PGA WEST on Tuesday, capturing a 10-stroke victory over BYU at the par-72, 7,156-yard Greg Norman Course.
For the Bruins, three players broke par in the final round and four finished among the top 11 individuals.
UCLA, which led after each round, posted team scores 280 (-8), 291 (+3) and 289 (+1) to finish at 860 (-4), while BYU finished at 870 (+6), followed by UC Irvine at 872 (+8) and Illinois at 875 (+11). Pepperdine and Notre Dame tied for fifth at 880 (+16).
For the Bruins, junior Chris Heintz and freshman Erik Flores tied for third at 214 (-2). Flores fired a 70 (-2) and Heintz posted a 71 (-1) in the final round. Sophomore Daniel Im tied for sixth at 215 (-1) after posting a 71 in round three. Freshman Lucas Lee tied for 11th at 217 (+1) and junior Joakim Renstrom tied for 68th at 231 (+17).
Tim Cha of UC Irvine and Danny Zimmerman of Illinois tied for medalist honors at three-under par 213. The day also featured a hole-in-one by Notre Dame's Cole Isban, who aced the par-3, 216-yard 13th hole. He finished the day with a 4-under 68, the second-lowest score of the third round. Isban tied for 11th overall.
UCLA's 10-shot win was the second-largest in the tournament's six-year history, trailing only Texas Christian's 15-stroke victory in 2002. It was also just one shot off the nine-shot win the Bruins recorded at last year's tournament, also played at the Greg Norman Course.
