March 21, 2008
SEATTLE - After nearly a two and a half week hiatus, the Washington men's golf team returns to the links to compete in the Oregon Duck Invitational at the Emerald Valley Golf Club in Creswell, Ore., Monday, March 24 and Tuesday, March 25.
The 54-hole tournament will feature 36 holes to be played on Monday and the final 18 on Tuesday. Both days will feature shotgun start times beginning at 8 a.m. PT.
Joining Washington in the field will be No. 36 Arkansas, UC Davis, Idaho, Northern Colorado, host Oregon, No. 41 Oregon State, Pacific, Portland, No. 35 San Diego State and Washington State.
Last year's team champion was USC when the tournament was held at the Eugene Country Club. Washington's Alex Prugh shared 2007 medalist honors with USC's Jamie Lovemark and UCLA's Kevin Chappell.
The Huskies are coming off a sixth-place finish at the USC Collegiate back in early March, led by the seventh-place individual finish of sophomore Nick Taylor. Taylor has been Washington's top finisher in the last three straight events and has two Top-10 finishes in the spring.
Following next week's tournament, UW will next head to Columbia, Mo., for the Missouri Tiger Intercollegiate, April 7-8.
