Apr 26, 2022

The Sun Devil men's golf team is in second heading to the final round of the 2022 Pac-12 Championship in suburban Seattle, as it is seven strokes back of host Washington through Tuesday at the par-71, 6,979-yard Aldarra Golf Club in Sammamish.

The Championship has turned into a three-team race, as Washington (5-under 1060), ASU (2-over 1067) and Stanford (4-over 1069) hold the top spots, with Oregon fourth at 14-over 1079.

Mason Andersen had hole-in-one on the 152-yard ninth hole. He is currently sitting at 2-under 211 (69-73-69) and tied for fifth. It was the 23rd eagle of Andersen's career, behind only Jon Rahm (39 from 2012-16) and Alex del Rey (26 from 2016-20) in the Sun Devil record books in the Golfstat era.

COACH THURMOND HAS THREE RINGS: Sun Devil head coach Matt Thurmond earned three Pac-10 titles in his 14 years at Washington, as the Huskies claimed the team title in 2010, 2009 and 2005. UW had not won the Pac-12 title since 1988 prior to its 2005 championship.

PAC-10/12 SUCCESS AT ASU: Arizona State has won 12 Pac-10 titles in its 42 chances, including a conference record six straight from 1995-2000. In addition to the six straight Pac-10 titles, ASU's other six Pac-10 titles were in 1979 (its first year in the league), 1981, 1989, 1990, 1993 and 2008. ASU tied for the league title in 2005 with Washington but lost on a tiebreaker formula, and the league decided to go to a playoff format after that season.
