Ducks to Conclude Fall Season at Ka’anapali Classic
EUGENE– Heading into the final tournament of the fall season, the Oregon men’s golf team looks to add to its success when the Ducks head to Lahaina, Maui for the Ka’anapali Collegiate Classic this weekend. The tournament will be played on the par-71, 6,700 yards Royal Ka’anapali Course.
The No. 2-ranked Ducks will be squared off against 12 other teams from around the country, including No. 25 Clemson, No. 32 North Florida and No. 48 Georgia.

LAST TIME OUT
The 21st-ranked Oregon Ducks cruised to its third straight victory at a very competitive Nike Golf Collegiate Invitational by six strokes over second-place Stanford. The win – their third in three weeks – tied the program record from the fall of 2011 for most consecutive wins in the fall. Sophomore Thomas Lim also claimed medalist honors thanks to a 25-foot birdie on the 18th hole to secure his win over Cheng-Tsung Pan of Washington and secure the sweep for Oregon. Lim was also awarded a sponsor’s exemption to the 2015 PGA Tour Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial
