Senior Tom Glissmeyer tied for 21st while three of his teammates carded pars today, but USC men's golf team only managed an eighth-place finish at the 2009 Pac-10 Championships at the Seattle (Wash.) G.C. on Wednesday (April 29).

USC turned in its best round of the event, but not enough to move up the scoreboard. Host-school Washington, enjoying a home-course advantage, won the team title at 16-under 1424 (365-360-347-352) while fellow Northwest school Oregon took second at 2-over 1442 (366-363-350-363). Arizona State was third (1456) and was followed by Stanford (1457), Oregon State (1464), UCLA (1466), Cal (1467), USC (1474), Arizona (1483) and Washington State (1524).

Glissmeyer, Troy's top finisher, tied for 21st at 4-over 292 (71-75-72-74) and he had two birdies on the day.

Junior Jamie Lovemark (76-72-74-72) and sophomore Matt Giles (75-75-72-72) tied for 24th at 6-over 294. Lovemark had five birdies on the day to manage par while Giles had two birdies and an eagle on his final hole to do the same.

Freshman Steve Lim tied for 31st at 8-over 296 (74-76-72-74). Lim was 2-over through 9 holes but was 4-over on the back 9.

Sophomore Tim Sluiter tied for 44th at 12-over 300 (75-76-76-73) and had four birdies on Wednesday while sophomore Bo DeHuff tied for 49th at 15-over 303 (76-78-77-72). DeHuff was a counter for the first time with a final-round 72, which included 2-under front 9.

By finishing below UCLA in the standings, USC did not secure the five points available in the Lexus-Gauntlet competition, the year-long, all-sports battle between USC and UCLA. The team that finishes highest at the Pac-10 Championships secures five points for their respective school. Troy now leads 50-45.
