COACH WHITE ON THIS WEEK'S TOURNAMENT – ""We've been preparing like we have for any other event so far this spring, and those tournaments are the ultimate preparation leading up to the conference championship. Things have been really competitive at home and I think it's helped translate to the road. The Pac-12 Championship is such a special event and the guys are looking forward to putting it all out there this week. It will be a good test of golf and no one will compete harder than we will. These guys have showed some grit over the spring and I look forward to walking alongside them to see some of our best golf yet."
