Men's Golf Travels to Pac-10 Championships
April 25, 2009
CORVALLIS, Ore. – The Oregon State men’s golf team travels this week to Seattle, Wash. for the Pacific-10 Championship at the Seattle Golf Club hosted by the University of Washington.
The championship showcases some of the top golfers in the nation along with three top-ranked teams in Washington, Southern California, and Stanford.
The three day event starts April 27 with 36-holes on the opening day. 18-holes will be played the following two day. Oregon State will tee off the first round at 7:50 a.m. on the 10th tee. Each team will have six golfers participate but only five scores will be counted towards the team score in every round.
The par-72, 6,836-yard Seattle Golf Club plays host to the three day tournament.
The field consists of all Pac-10 school; Arizona, Arizona State, California, Stanford, Oregon, Oregon State, UCLA, USC, Washington, and Washington State.
Last time out for OSU
Oregon State last hit the links at the U.S. Intercollegiate in Palo Alto, Calif. It finished 11th out of 16 with a 13-over par 853 (281-287-285). Paul Peterson led the way for the Beavers with a 3-under 207 (67-72-68). Nine Pac-10 teams competed at the U.S. Intercollegiate which was won by Washington, an impressive 15-strokes ahead of second place finisher USC.
Last year’s pac-10
The Beavers finished 8th last year at the Pac-10s at the Meadow Club in Fairfax, Calif. They finished with a four round total 1,461 (354-366-374-367) with former Beaver James Allenby leading the way with a 1-over 285 (68-71-73-73). Their 8th place finish last year was enough to propel them into the NCAA West Regional which they hope will be the same result this year.
