Final Round of Husky Invitational Cancelled Due to Weather

Oct. 2, 2007

BREMERTON, Wash. - The Washington State men's golf team will use its first day of scoring as the second day of competition at the Husky Invitational was cancelled due to inclement weather Tuesday, Oct. 2 at the par-72, 7,061-yard Gold Mountain Golf Club. Tournament scores were based on the first 36-holes played Monday as rain and wind forced the cancellation.

The Cougar men finished the first day, and the tournament, in 13th place as they fired a two-round total of 618. Sophomore Austin Hurt led the Cougar squad with a total score of 152 (+8). Hurt's 2-over par 74 during the second round of play helped him move up the leader board to finish in a tie for 31st.

Sophomore Nick Grigsby also played well for the Cougars and moved up 12 spots during the second round of play. Grigsby carded a two-round total of 155.

Freshman Xavier Dailly fired a two-round total of 156, freshman Nick Ellis scored a 157 and sophomore Kevin Tucker shot a 162 to round out the Cougar contingent.

Pacific-10 Conference rival Oregon State won the tournament and OSU senior James Allenby took home the medalist honors.
