STANFORD, Calif. – The final day of play again proved to be the Achilles heel for the Oregon men’s golf team as the Ducks dropped two spots, finishing in a tie for fifth at The Goodwin on Sunday. Oregon shot a 285 5-over card on the last and final round to finish with a final line of 273-285-285—843 (+3), tying with UAB who shot 4-under on the day to catch up with UO.
Stanford, the host, shot a tournament-low 266 14-under card on the day to claim the team title with a final score of 268-281-266—815 (-25). USC and UCLA tied for second at 5-under, finishing with an 835 card while Washington took fourth with an 839 1-under card.
Patrick Rodgers won the individual title with a card of 196 14-under at The Goodwin to give Stanford the sweep. The Trojan’s Rico Hoey took second with a line of 66-69-67—202 (-8) while Stanford’s Cameron Wilson rounded out the top three with a card of 69-70-65—204 (-6).
Sulman Raza wrapped up the final day of the tournament firing in a 68 2-under card, and finished in a tie for 10th with a final card of 68-72-68—208 (-2). Raza has now placed in the top-10 in back-to-back tournaments and three of the last four events.
Brandon McIver slipped a few spots on the individual leaderboard to finish in a tie for 12th after sitting in fourth place through the first two rounds. McIver sank just two birdies compared to his five bogeys on Sunday, giving him a final card of 66-70-73—209 (-1).
Thomas Lim barely snuck in the top 25 after shooting 1-over on the day and finished with a card of 70-71-71—212 (+2). The freshman was at 1-under on Sunday heading into his final two holes, but back-to-back bogeys on the 17th and 18th-hole sent Lim over par.
Zach Foushee wrapped up The Goodwin with a card of 69-73-73—215 (+5). Foushee was 3-under on the day through eight holes before an unlucky turn of events. The sophomore shot three-consecutive bogey’s starting with the ninth-hole and then hit bogeys on the 14th, 15th and 17th-hole to end the day 3-over.
Brandon Baumgarten’s finish was quite different from the success he had at the Duck Invitational. The freshman finished with a final card of 73-72-75—220 (+10), in his first time playing in the Oregon line up.
The Ducks will take a week off before heading south to Santa Cruz, Calif., for their last tournament before the Pac-12 Championships. Pasatiempo Golf Club will serve as the site of The Western Intercollegiate, April 12-13, where Oregon will look to gain some momentum heading into the conference championship tournament as well as bolster its resume for the NCAA West Regionals – which the Ducks will be hosting – at Eugene Country Club, May 15-17.The Goodwin
