Wallace Is April's Best
May 8, 2009
SEATTLE, Wash. -- Darren Wallace became the third Husky to be named Pac-10 Player of the Month during the 2008-09 season.
The entire conference was on hand to see just how dominant Wallace has been during the month of April, as all 10 schools participated in the Pac-10 Championship, which Washington junior won by five strokes. Wallace was 11-under and the only golfer to card all four rounds at par or better, shooting 70-72-65-70 277 and leading Washington to its fifth Pac-10 team Championship.. During his title run, his third-round 65 set the competitive course record at the Seattle Golf Club.
In addition to winning the Pac-10 tournament, Wallace was the runner-up at the U.S. Intercollegiate at Stanford where he shot a Husky-record, third-round 63. He also turned in a top-20 finish at the U.S. Collegiate championship at the beginning of April -- a tournament that showcased the top 12 teams in the country. In 10 rounds this April, Wallace shot under par in seven of them as part of his torrid two months.
