The Arizona State men's golf team won its Thunderbird Invitational for the fifth time in six years on Saturday at The Karsten Golf Course with a final round 273 and finished at 43-under par 821 (270-278-273), which broke the tournament record of 40-under 824 it had set last year.

Sophomore Alejandro Canizares, the 2003 NCAA champion, shot a final round 69 and tied the tournament record with a 16-under 200 (65-66-69) to win medalist honors. Canizares tied the mark set by TCU's Bret Guetz. Canizares also became the first Sun Devil to win the event since Paul Casey in 2000, as the three-time All-American shot a 9-under 207. It marked the third tournament win in 19 career events for Canizares, who also won the 2003 National Invitational Tournament in Tucson in addition to his 2003 NCAA championship in Stillwater.

Arizona State has now won its home event 13 times and has finished first or second every year since 1994, a streak of 11 straight tournaments. The Sun Devils also have won back-to-back tournaments for the first time since the 1999-2000 squad won back-to-back titles twice in a five-tournament span, as this year's team won the National Invitational in Tucson March 28-30.

The Sun Devils have also now won four tournaments on the year, as it also took home championship honors at New Mexico's Tucker Intercollegiate (Sept. 12-13), UNLV's Southern Highlands Championship (March 12-14) and the National Invitational (March 28-30) held in Tucson. It last won four tournaments in 1999-2000.

Senior Chez Reavie, the 2001 U.S. Public Links champion, finished third with a final round 67 and a 13-under 203 (66-70-67). Reavie now has a 21 top-10 finishes in his four-year career, including seven this year, and leads the team with a 70.84 stroke average.

ASU's Kendall Critchfield, playing for the ASU Maroon squad, finished tied for sixth with an 11-under 205 (63-70-72). The Mesa, Ariz., native shot a 9-under 63 in the first round and had a double-eagle on the par-5 14th hole, which was his finishing hole in the shotgun-start format used Friday. The 63 marked a collegiate best for Critchfield, whose previous best of 65 came on April 11, 2003, in the second round of the Thunderbird Invitational.

Ninth-ranked Arizona shot a 32-under 832 (273-285-274) to finish second.

Peter Tomasulo of 16th-ranked California, who carded a course and tournament record 11-under 61 (29-32) in the opening round and was tied for second at 11-under 133 after two rounds, had to withdraw after 12 holes in the final round due to an injury. His first-round 61 was one stroke better than the 62 shot by 2000 U.S. Amateur champion Jeff Quinney on April 18, 1999. Quinney shot a 15-under 201 that year.

ASU entered play this week fifth in the Golf Coaches Association poll, sixth in the Golfstat poll and seventh according to Golfweek. Chez Reavie is ranked 15th by Golfweek and Alejandro Canizares is No. 31.

Arizona State will next compete in the Pac-10 Championships April 25-28 in Tucson. The Sun Devils have won the league title 11 times, including a league-record six straight titles from 1995-2000. ASU coach Randy Lein has led ASU to seven of those Pac-10 titles.
