SETTING THE STAGE
EUGENE – Next week, the No. 7-ranked University of Oregon men’s golf team takes on the nation’s top teams in its 25th NCAA Championships trip in school history and fourth under sixth-year head coach
Casey Martin.

The 30-team event features three rounds of stroke play in three days at the Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles, Calif., on Tuesday-Thursday, May 29-31. The top eight teams then advance to match play with the quarterfinal on Friday, June 1, semifinal on Saturday, June 2, and final on Sunday, June 3.


Thanks to its top-five finish in the Ann Arbor Regional last weekend, the Ducks (second, 288-274-280-842) staked their fourth, top-two regional placing under Martin.


Two years ago, UO tied for third in the 2010 NCAA Championships and enjoyed its best-ever placing in program history. Martin’s other youth-laden squads in '09 and '08 placed 22nd and 27th, respectively.


This week, two Duck seniors rank 11 nationally – Pac-12 Player of the Year
Eugene Wong (fourth, 70.24) and fellow All-Pac-12 First-Team honoree Daniel Miernicki (11th, 70.59).

Besides Wong and Miernicki, three other Ducks stood top 250 this week – senior
Andrew Vijarro (153rd, 72.59), freshman Jonathan Woo (164th, 73.21) and redshirt junior Robbie Ziegler (179th, 73.06).

DUCK NCAA HISTORY
Oregon has made three of its 24 prior NCAA appearances under the guidance of sixth-year head coach
Casey Martin. In that span, the team's third-place tie in 2010 was its best-ever in program history, and one place better than its showing in 1959. His other youth-laden squads in '09 and '08 placed 22nd and 27th, respectively.

UO's all-time finishes in order of placing follow: third - 2010 (Stroke Play-861), fourth (1959 - 574), seventh (197 - 1228), 10th (1976 - 1194), 11th (1978 - 1188), 14th (1948 - 616; 1956 - 620; 1970 - 1208), 15th (1957 - 632), 16th (1960 - 628; 1975 - 1215), 17th (1947 - 638), 18th (1950 - 619; 1986 - 1192; 1999 - 614), 22nd (1983 - 907; 2003 - 924; 2009 - 897); 23rd (1990 - 1206), 27th (1981 - 904; 1998 - 590; 2008 - 935), 30th (1987 - 926) and 32nd (1964 - 640)



DUCK TEAM BREAKDOWN
Ranked top 15 nationally all season long, No. 7-ranked Oregon features one of its most talented squads ever, composed of four seniors who have led UO to team wins in six events and three individual victories in 2011-12.


Senior
Eugene Wong has led the team in the final standings of five of its 12 stroke play events. His win in the Alister MacKenzie Invitational (65-63-67-195) last fall was his third career-wise, and his school-record 18-under score was a career best by eight strokes.

Among his 37 rounds this season, he has a team-best 22 under-par rounds (and another at par), and has paced the team 17 times. In 2011-12, besides his Alister MacKenzie Invitational victory, he added two runner-up finishes in the Oregon Duck Invitational (-6) and U.S. Intercollegiate (even) and a third-place finish in the Gifford Collegiate ((-7).


Nationally this week in the Golfstat rankings, the 2010 Nickalaus Award winner stood fourth overall (70.24, +0.367) not far behind national leader and Texas frosh Jordan Spieth (70.68).

 
Four other Ducks rank top 250 this week - seniors Daniel Miernicki (11th, 70.59), Andrew Vijarro (153rd, 72.59)), freshman Jonathan Woo (164th, 73.21) and redshirt junior Robbie Ziegler (179th, 73.06).

The three-time All-Pac-12 First-Team choice Miernicki had the team's hottest start last fall, and opened with nine straight rounds of par or better, including seven under-par. He has led the team in 12 rounds this year, including six of the last 11.


The former honorable mention All-American posted his second U.S. Intercollegiate victory in late March (66-72-66-204 (-6)) – his fifth career win – and five days after he placed third in the Oregon Duck Invitational (71-69-72-212 (-4)). In early April, he added another of his eight top-10 finishes in the Western Intercollegiate (ninth, 73-70-69-212). The past month, he staked three straight runner-up finishes in the Aggie Invitational (73-70-74-217), Pac-12 Championships (68-72-66-71-277) and NCAA Ann Arbor Regional (71-65-70-206).


In the fall, Miernicki posted top-20 placings in his first four events - the St. Mary's Invitational (3rd, 72-68-70-210), The Prestige (fifth, 70-69-68-207), Alister MacKenzie Invitational (12th-t, 67-68-71-206) and the Gifford Collegiate (20th-t, 73-73-72-218) – and also in the Bandon Dunes Championship in early March (15th-t, 73-57-72-220).


Vijarro staked his first collegiate win in the Oregon Duck Invitational (71-70-69-210) at the Eugene Country Club in late March. The Bend, Ore., native shot three, same-tourney, under-par scores for the second time in his career. His six-under score was his third under-par tourney total this season and ninth career-wise (and only three off his career best (-9) that came in The Prestige event last fall (fifth, 68-71-68-207)).


Among other spring highlights, he placed 12th in the Bandon Dunes Championship (71-74-74-219) and top 25 in the Aggie Invitational (20th-t, 78-79-71-228), Pac-12 Championships (21st-t, 79-72-68-72-291 (+3)) and U.S. Intercollegiate (25th-t, 69-74-74-217).


In other fall action, he added two more top-20 finishes in the St. Mary's Invitational (20th-t, 73-72-76-221) and Gifford Collegiate (17th, 75-74-68-217). His other fall effort - the Alister MacKenzie Invitational - featured two under-par rounds (31st, 73-69-69-211).


Overall in Oregon history, Miernicki, Wong and Vijarro rank 1-2-3 in career rounds of par or better (89-81-57).


Redshirt junior
Robbie Ziegler played three fall events for the Ducks in 2011 after redshirting the 2010-11 campaign. The Canby, Ore., native kicked off the season with a 15th-place finish in the St. Mary's Invitational (20th-t, 73-72-76-221), and his two-under second-round is his season best and among 8 under-par scores on the campaign (to go along with two more at par).

In the spring, Ziegler led UO’s team entries in the Bandon Dunes Championship in the overall results (ninth, 70-74-72-216) for the first time this year. He added top-25 overall placings in his late March/early April outings - the Oregon Duck Invitational (eighth-tie, 73-71-71-215 (-1)), U.S. Intercollegiate (fifth-tie, 68-70-72-210 (E)) and Aggie Invitational (21st-t, 72-74-71-74-291)).


Ranked top 250 for the first time in his career the past month, freshman
Jonathan Woo jumped 84 places this week to his season-high national ranking (164th, 73.21). The Singapore native has shot par or better scores in four of his last five rounds in the Pac-12 Championships and NCAA Regional to give him six overall among his 19 on the spring and season. In the latter event in Ann Arbor in mid-May, he shot his first-under par tourney total – a five-under 208 (72-66-70) that included a five-under career-best second round.

He led UO for the first time in his career in the Western Intercollegiate with his first-round 69 in his first appearance as a team entrant (42nd-tie, 69-82-73-224).


A month before in his collegiate debut, he shot a three-under, first-round 68 in the Bandon Dunes Championship en route to his highest collegiate tourney placing (seventh, 68-74-73-215 (+2)). In his second collegiate appearance (and as an individual), the Singapore native added his second top-20 effort in the Oregon Duck Invitational (16th, 73-73-73-219), and his three-over tourney score was only one stroke off his then-career best.


Freshman
Rak Cho connected on under-par scores in six of his first nine rounds for the Ducks last fall, including a season-best five-under-67 in the finale of his collegiate debut, the St. Mary's Invitational (second, 74-68-67-209). He added a third-place effort in the Alister MacKenzie Invitational (67-68-66-201) en route to a 12-under tourney score that ranks fourth all-time for UO.

In the spring, Cho tied his season low round with his five-under 67 in the Amer Ari Invitational opener in early February. In March action, he added another under-par and par round on the par-71 Bandon Trails course en route to a third-place Bandon Dunes Championship finish and two-under tourney score (third, 72-68-71-211).


Sophomore
Ben Itterman played four spring events for the Ducks and placed top 35 in three of them – the Aggie Invitational (20th, 77-79-72-228), Bandon Dunes Championship (30th-tie, 79-75-69-223) and Oregon Duck Invitational (32nd-tie, 73-76-74-223). He had three rounds of par or better this season (including a career-best-tying two-under 69) among his seven career-wise, and another at one over in his most recent tourney.

Redshirt senior
Jack Paton played seven events and carded three rounds at par and two more under par. The Hillsborough, Calif., native placed top 50 in five events this season, with his top-two placings in his first stops of the fall - the St. Mary's Invitational (33rd-tie, 70-81-76-227) and Alister MacKenzie Invitational (31st, 71-72-77-220).

RECENT DUCK ACTION
In its sixth straight regional trip in head coach
Casey Martin’s tenure, No. 7 Oregon matched its pre-tourney seeding in the NCAA Ann Arbor Regional last weekend, and placed second in the 13-team field. The Ducks (288-274-280-842) ended one stroke behind the event’s top seed, No. 6 USC (289-272-280-841), to stake its fourth, top-two regional placing under Martin.

Senior
Daniel Miernicki (second-tie, 71-65-70-206) posted his third straight top-two finish this season, and ended at par or better in all three rounds to give him 24 this season and a school-record 89 career-wise. Miernicki scored the second runner-up regional placing of his career after a similar effort as a sophomore.

Freshman
Jonathan Woo (seventh-tie, 72-66-70-208) enjoyed his fifth and sixth rounds of par or better and shot a five-under season-best second round en route to his first-ever under-par tourney total.

Senior
Andrew Vijarro (28th-tie, 73-74-68-215) led UO for the sixth time this season in the finale, and his three-under score was one off his season best (-4), and two off his career-best (-5). That total was his 16th of the year at par or better and led the team for the 24th time in his career.

Senior
Eugene Wong (19th-tie, 72-69-72-213) staked his 10th, top-20 finish on the season, and UO’s other entrant was redshirt junior Robbie Ziegler (45th-tie, 73-76-73-222).

In prior regional trips under Martin, the Ducks have savored one regional title (2010), and finished second (2009) and 10th (2011) in the current 13-team regional format. In the previous 27-team regional format in his first two years at the helm, UO took second in ’08 and 19th in ’07. A list of recent team / individual finishes follows:

Two weeks before in the Pac-12 Championships in Corvallis, Ore., then-No. 11 UO tied for first place at the end of the regulation (364-358-344-362-1427 (-14)) after it entered the event seeded fifth among six teams ranked top 13 nationally.

In the event hosted at the Trysting Tree Golf Course, UO ultimately placed second after the two-hole playoff to then-No. 6 California. The Ducks still took satisfaction in their third runner-up finish in four years under Martin (and tied their best-ever Pac-12 league finish).


On the par-72 course, Oregon seniors
Daniel Miernicki (68-72-66-71-277 (-11)) and Eugene Wong (69-68-69-73-279 (-9)) placed second and third overall for their best-ever league placings.

Two other Ducks followed in the top 25 - senior
Andrew Vijarro (21st-tie, 79-72-68-72-291) and redshirt junior Robbie Ziegler (21st-tie, 72-74-71-74-291). UO's other entries included freshman Jonathan Woo (32nd-tie, 77-76-70-72-295), and sophomore Ben Itterman (59th-tie, 78-72-78-77-305).


PAC-12 NOTES
This week, the No. 7 Ducks are one of six teams in the nation’s top golf conference ranked top nine nationally that also includes No. 3 California, No. 5 UCLA, No. 6 USC, No. 8 Washington and No. 9 Stanford.


Other Pac-12 teams’ rankings follow: Oregon State (48), Arizona (60), Colorado (68), Arizona State (81), Washington State (117) and Utah (206).


Individual-wise, senior
Eugene Wong (fourth, 70.24, +0.378) is the highest Pac-12 player in this week’s national individual rankings.

Others ranked top 25 include Stanford freshman Patrick Rodgers (fifth, 70.62), Washington junior Chris Williams (sixth, 70.49) Oregon senior
Daniel Miernicki (11th, 70.59), UCLA junior Pedro Figeiredo (15th, 71.39), Washington freshman Cheng-Tsung Pan (17th, 71.19), UCLA sophomore Patrick Cantlay (20th, 71.28) and Stanford junior Andrew Yun (21st, 71.30).

In last June's NCAA Championships, the ‘Conference of Champions’ featured one team in the quarterfinals (UCLA), and the Bruins led the stroke play scoring (872) by three strokes. Three other league members placed top 20 after the opening three rounds - USC (12th-t, 895), Arizona State (18th, 899) and California (19th-t, 902).


On the individual front, the Pac-12 featured the 2011 NCAA runner-up - UCLA's Patrick Cantlay (72-69-71-212), and two four more top-20 finishers in California's Michael Weaver (eighth-tie, 71-71-74-216) and Max Homa (17th-t, 73-74-72-219), USC's Jeffrey Kang (20th-t, 72-73-75-220) and UCLA's Gregor Main (20th-t, 72-70-78-220).


Historically, five different Pac-12 teams (Stanford (7 - 1938, 39, 41, 42, 46, 53, 94), Arizona State (2 - 1990, 96), UCLA (2 - 1988, 208), Arizona (1 - 1992) and California (1 - 2004) have combined for 13 NCAA team titles since the first collegiate championship in 1897.


League individuals have claimed 14 national championships in the same span courtesy of Stanford's Frank Tatum (1942) and Tiger Woods (1996), USC's Scott Simpson (1976, '77), Ron Commons (1981) and Jamie Lovemark (2007), Arizona State's Jim Carter (1983), Phil Mickelson (1989, '90, '92), Todd Demsey (1993) and Alejandro Cañizares (2003),Washington's James Lepp (2005) and UCLA's Kevin Chappell (2008).



TOP DUCK PROFILE
Sixth-year Duck head coach
Casey Martin has established himself as one of the nation's most respected coaches after an equally noteworthy collegiate and pro playing career.

The Eugene native was tabbed the Pac-12 Coach of the Year in 2010 - his fourth season at the helm - after he led the Ducks to a then-school-record five tournament victories, including Oregon’s first-ever NCAA Regional title. UO followed with a school-best tie for third place in the NCAA Championships in Chattanooga, Tenn., thanks to a fifth-place effort in stroke play, and quarterfinal match play win over league rival Washington, 3-2.


That same 2009-10 season, then-sophomore
Eugene Wong was tabbed the co-Pac-12 Golfer of the Year, won the Jack Nicklaus Award as the Division I player of the year and was named a first-team PING All-American. Wong's tie for ninth at the NCAA Championships is believed to be the best finish ever by a UO golfer.

Other highlights his first few seasons included, wins in the 2006 Northwest Collegiate Classic - his second event at the Duck helm - and the 2007 Thunderbird Invitational in Tempe. Prior to becoming head coach, he served as a volunteer assistant for the Ducks during the 2005-06 season.


Before that he was one of the nation's most recognized professionals since the start of his pro career in 1998. He earned his PGA Tour card in 2000 - the same season he recorded five top-50 finishes. His best showing was a tie for 17th in the 2000 Tucson Open, and he also placed 23rd in the the 1998 U.S. Open.


A graduate of South Eugene High School, Martin was a three time all-conference selection and a two-time All-American at Stanford. In 1995, he received Academic All-America honors while graduating with a degree in economics. He was a member of the 1994 Stanford team that won the NCAA championship.



LANNING JOINS FOLD
The Oregon men's golf team welcomed
Brad Lanning to the program this past summer as a first-year assistant coach. In his recent work as a highly successful high school golf coach, Lanning again joins forces with head coach Casey Martin - his former Stanford teammate from three seasons, including the Cardinal's 1994 NCAA Championship squad.

After college, Lanning spent six years playing professionally with stints on the Hooters Tour, South American Tour and Canadian PGA, and also worked as a stock broker before entering the coaching ranks.


Success came quickly for Lanning as a high school assistant coach with a state title and runner-up finish in two years at St. Stephen’s Episcopal School in Bradenton, Fla. After relocating to Colorado to enter a master’s program at Denver Seminary, Lanning assisted Valor Christian High School to a pair of state championships in his three seasons at the helm.


A 1994 Stanford graduate with a degree in Political Science, Lanning, 40, earned his master’s in Counseling at Denver Seminary in 2011.
