No. 14 Trojans Set For Pac-10 Championships

April 21, 2005


The No. 14 USC men's golf team--the highest ranked team in the conference--looks to improve upon its fifth-place finish last year as it prepares for the 2005 Pac-10 Men's Golf Championships at the Walla Walla (Wash.) Country Club from Monday to Wednesday (April 25-27).

A winner of a Pac-10 best 17 conference crowns, including back-to-back titles in 2001 and 2002, the Trojans will tee off in the third pairing (with host school Washington State) at 8:36 a.m. from the first tee. The low five scores from teams of six competitors will count towards the team totals each day.

A practice round is set for Sunday (April 24) before the teams kick off action with 36 holds on Monday. They follow it up with 18 holes each on Tuesday and Wednesday. The course is Par 71, 6,606 yards

No. 24 Arizona and No. 66 Oregon start at the first hole at 7 a.m. on Monday and are followed by No. 17 Arizona State and No. 75 California. No. 16 UCLA and No. 61 Oregon State start at the 10th hole at 7:20 a.m. and will be followed by No. 50 Stanford and No. 29 Washington.

USC finished fifth at last year's championships, shooting a combined 1479, 29 shots back of winner Arionza. Ben Hayes led the Trojans with a ninth-place mark.

The Trojans are coming off of a high after winning the U.S. Intercollegiate on April 17 for their first win of the 2004-2005 season. Taylor Wood paced USC, tying for second with a one-under 209.
