BANDON, Ore. – A rough day out on the Pacific Dunes course at the Bandon Dunes Championship left the Oregon men’s golf team in ninth place on the final day of the event Tuesday. Thomas Lim led all Ducks with a final card of 68-76-73—217 and finished in a tie for seventh at 4-over par.
As a team, the Ducks fired in a final score of 289-297-304—890 and shot 20-over par on the final round. Its 38-over par score is the highest over-par finish since last season when the Ducks shot a whopping 73-over at the Pac-12 Championships.
“We just simply played bad all week,” head coach Casey Martin said. “We are all disappointed but we will get our Ducks in a row and play better for our event next week.”
Missouri narrowly held on for the team title after shooting 14-over par today. The Tigers’ 11-over par total, 281-284-298—863, was just good enough to beat UC Davis who came in second with a card of 292-288-285—265 (+13). The 13th-ranked Washington Huskies – according to Golfstat – finished in third-place and posted a score of 293-288-289—870 (+18).
The Huskies’ Jonathan Sanders was able to hold on to his first-place lead heading into the final round on the individual board and finished with a score of 71-67-72—210. The Aggies’ Matt Hansen and Luke Vivolo went second and third, respectively, to wrap up the top three spots.
Playing separate from the team score, Jonathan Woo wrapped up the tournament in a tie for 15th. The junior shot 6-over par overall and finished with a final card of 73-73-73—219. Brandon Baumgarten also played separate from the team score and finished in a tie for 21st after shooting 7-over at the tournament with a card of 72-72-76—220.
Brandon McIver’s final round echoed that of the team score as the sophomore fired a 75-69-79—223 (+10). Ryann Ree didn’t fare much better, finishing 14-over par and line of 78-74-75—227. Zach Foushee also shot better today was it wasn’t enough as the West Linn, Ore., native scored a line of 71-82-77—230 (+17).
Sulman Raza had a 360-degree spin on his score compared to that of the Wyoming Cowboy Desert Intercollegiate. Raza finished 23-over par and 12-over on the day to finish the tournament with a line of 75-78-83—236.
The Ducks will have a week off before hosting the 25th Annual Duck Invitational at the Emerald Valley Golf Course. The two-day tournament begins on March 24 and will end on March 25.
