Beavers Finish Seventh At Husky Invitational

Sept. 30, 2003

BREMERTON, Wash.- - The Oregon State men's golf team fired a final-round 380 Tuesday to finish seventh in the two-day Opus Husky Invitational at Gold Mountain Golf Complex. Their total score of 1120 was just three shots shy of fourth place.

OSU's Brad Simpson, in second place after two rounds, posted a final round 79 to finish tied for eighth overall with a 4-over 220.

The Beavers had three players within the top 22. OSU senior Sean Deacon and freshman Ryan Gilmour both shot 75 in the final round. Deacon cracked the top 20 by finishing tied for 19th at 222 and Gilmour, less than a week after finishing fifth at the Northwest Collegiate Classic, finished 22nd with a 223.

'We've played two tournaments this year and have been in position to win in both,' OSU coach Brian Watts said of his team's performance thus far. 'We hung with the leaders for most of the day, but just didn't execute down the stretch. We need to figure out how to finish off a golf tournament.

'As long as we keep putting ourselves in position to win, we are making progress. We have to put these positives toward our next tournaments and finish up our fall season strong.'

Jonathan Green tied for 32nd at 227 after leading OSU with a 74 in the final round. Brian Kelley finished tied for 49th and Mitch Gillis was one shot behind and tied for 52nd.

Washington's Brock Mackenzie held his lead from the first two rounds, finishing strong with a 4-under 68 to take individual medallist honors and lead his team to a 7-over first place finish.

OSU travels south to the Meadow Club in Fairfax California to play in the Alister Mackenzie Invite Oct. 13-14.
