The Ducks finished third in the team standings a year ago and saw Greyson Leach tie for first in the individual tournament. Nate Stember tied for fourth in the individual part of the tournament, while Owen Avrit led the Ducks in the team competition by tying for eighth.

His score included a career-low 65 in the second round. Owen Avrit tied for eighth at 11-under 199. He opened the tournament with a career-best 63 that was one shot off the Ducks' school record.
