Men's Golf Takes 16th At Taylor Made Intercollegiate

Feb. 18, 2001

WAIKOLOA, Haw. - - Anthony Arvidson increased his string of top-25 finishes to eight with his play at the Taylor Made Intercollegiate men's golf tournament on Saturday, as Oregon State took 16th overall with a score of 938 after a final-round 297.

The field of 24 played its 54 holes on the par-72 Kings' and par-70 Beach courses in Waikoloa, Haw., with all of the teams finishing on the Kings' Course on Saturday. OSU opened the tournament on the Kings' Course and played the second round on the Beach.

'We're not happy with where we finished,' OSU head coach Mike Ketcham said. 'But we did come away with some positives from the weekend. Our decision-making under adverse conditions is getting better, but we will continue to have our ups and downs, as was the case this weekend. We need to continue to show improvement from tournament to tournament.'

Arvidson's final round of even-par 72 gave him a three-round total of 228, which put him in a tie for 24th. The only senior on the squad, Arvidson has now posted eight consecutive top-25 finishes, dating back to the U.S. Intercollegiate of last year. The span includes a tie for 24th at the 2000 NCAA West Regional and two top-10 finishes during the fall slate.

Freshmen Cameron MacKenzie and Daren Grieg finished strong, as both fired 74s in the final round. MacKenzie earned a tie for 50th with a 21-over score of 235, while Grieg shot 247.

Michael Jurgensen, a sophomore, played the most consistent golf for the Beavers, carding a 78-78-79--235 to tie for 50th along with MacKenzie and nine other competitors.

Dave Yarnes finished with a 245 after a final-round 77.

Fourth-ranked Texas led the tournament from wire-to-wire, as the Longhorns grabbed a six-stroke victory over second-place Arizona State with a score of 893.

Nevada's Sprague Kolp edged out ASU's Matt Jones for a one-stroke victory in the medalist race, as Kolp shot 217, including a closing 69 on Saturday.

The Beavers play next at the Southwestern Intercollegiate in Los Angeles from March 4-6. OSU tied for eighth at last year's event.
