Jackson Rivera fired his team-best eighth round in the 60s to close the Pac-12 Championships.

Freshman Jackson Rivera matched his career-best effort with a tie for sixth to again lead the USC men's golf team as the 2022 Pac-12 Men's Golf Championships came to a close  at the Aldarra G.C. in Sammamish, Wash., on Wednesday (April 27).

USC finished seventh at 36-over 1456 (362-356-380-358). No. 8 host Washington won at 2-over while Stanford was second (5-over) and Arizona State third (10-over).

Rivera fired his team-best eighth round in the 60s this year, a 2-under effort to finish the 72-hole tournament at par 284 (73-68-74-69). He went out at 3-under on the back 9 start and finished at 1-over, closing with a pair of pars.
