Troy Finishes 2nd After U.S. Intercollegiate Final Round Cancelled
April 16, 2006
Bad weather caused the cancellation of the final round of the U.S. Intercollegiate by the Maple Fund in Stanford on Sunday (April 16), prohibiting USC a chance from improving on its second-place standing after Saturday's 36 holes.
The USC men's golf team, playing through wet and windy conditions on Saturday, was only one shot back of the lead entering Sunday. The Trojans posted combined rounds of 290 and 289 for a 579, one shot back of leader UCLA. Host Stanford was in third (580).
That was also the standings after play was called Sunday.
Senior Taylor Wood finished tied for second with a 141 (+1, 71-70), six shots back of Stanford's Rob Grube. Senior Bradley Shaw was eighth with a 143 (+3, 73-70) while junior Joshua Wooding was tied for 18th at 147 (+7, 72-75).
Junior Jordan Nasser tied for 28th with a 149 (+9, 74-75) and senior Tyler Ley tied for 50th at 153 (+13, 79-74). Freshman Tom Glissmeyer, playing as an individual, tied for 35th with a 150 (+10, 75-75).
The Trojans are next in action April 24-26 when USC hosts the 2006 Pac-10 Men's Golf Championships at Bighorn Golf Club's Canyons Course in Palm Desert, Calif.
