BANDON, Ore. – Freshman Peter Jung finished the 2022 Bandon Dunes Championship in a tie for sixth place Tuesday, March 8, as the Washington State men's golf team concluded the tournament in a tie for eighth place on the team leaderboard after posting a three-round score of 866 (+34).
Jung, who was playing the tournament as an individual, capped off his three-day stay at the Sheep Ranch Golf Course by shooting 3-under par; 68. Jung shot 5-under on par-5 scoring in the tournament to complete the Bandon Dunes Championship at even-par; 213.
Sophomore Jaden Cantafio also posted a top-15 finish at the Bandon Dunes Championship, finishing in a tie for 11th on the player leaderboard at 4-over; 217. Cantafio capped off the tournament by posting his best round of play at the Sheep Ranch Golf Course on Tuesday. The sophomore shot 3-under par; 68 in his final round to move up 19 slots up the player leaderboard at the end of the tournament to finish tied for 11th.
"I'm proud of how all the guys fought the last few days," said WSU Head Coach Dustin White. "We just didn't quite have it this week. There was some good golf, but we weren't able to put it together as a group or finish rounds particularly well. The wind got up and the course played tough. This week taught us a lot and will make us better the rest of the spring. Peter had a really nice week and Jaden hung in there and had a solid final round. This should be a nice confidence builder for both of them."
Junior Pono Yanagi also posted a top-25 finish at the Bandon Dunes Championship. The Hilo, Hawaii native carded even-par; 71 in Tuesday's third round to end the tournament in a tie for 21st. Yanagi completed the Bandon Dunes Championship with a three-round score of 219 (+6).

The Spartans Caleb Shelter won the tournament's individual title by shooting 4-under; 209 over this three-day stay at the Sheep Ranch Golf Course.
