Bixler in Fourth Place at Vandal Classic
Sept. 27, 2004
Moscow, ID - Washington freshman golfer Zach Bixler is in fourth place at the Vandal Fall Classic after turning in rounds of 69 and 68 at the Idaho Golf Course. His 5-under 137 trails the tournament leader by two strokes. Bixler is one of three Huskies competing in the tournament as an individual.
Junior Travis Andrews, a walkon who earned a spot on the Husky roster earlier this month, got his UW career off to a great start by posting a 6-under 65 during his first round. He shot 74 during his second 18 and is tied for eighth at 3-under 139. Husky sophomore Reid Rader is tied for third at 1-under 141.
Andrews' 65 was the second best score for the first round of a tournament in UW history. Only Dan Potter's 64, during the 2002 Stanford Invitational, was a better opening-round score than Andrews.
Loyola Marymount's Jason D'Amore leads the tournament at 7-under 135. He had rounds of 71 and 64. The final round of the tournament will take place Monday.
