SACRAMENTO, Calif. – On an extremely windy Tuesday morning, the Pacific men's golf program registered the eighth lowest score in its final 18 holes at the Olympic Club Intercollegiate, which was hosted on the par-71 Lake Course at The Olympic Club in San Francisco, Calif.
"There is a reason that The Olympic Club has hosted the US Open on five occasions, it is because of its championship caliber golf club," expressed Head Coach John Cook.
As a team, the Tigers registered an 894 to finish ahead of four other programs — Seattle University (894), Cal State Monterey Bay (896), Sacramento State (904), and Cal Poly (916). Pacific totaled 153 pars and 33 birdies, while ranking fourth in the field with a -3 in par-5 shooting.
Austin Fox had a stellar final round, shooting a team-best two over-par. He finished in a tie for 20th (219, +6) with round scores of 79, 67, and 73.
"Austin had a great finish, which was credited to his fantastic second round score."
Despite shooting a tournament high in his final round, Casey Scott secured a top 40 finish with a 224 (+11). Scott was the Tigers top par-5 shooter, ranking fourth among all golfers with a four under-par for the event.
"Jee put forth a great second round effort, while Beau had a great bounce-back round this morning after a tough finish on Monday afternoon."
Pacific will not have much of a break as it is set to hit the road again for the Grand Canyon Invitational, which is set for March 15-16, 2019. Last season, Scott claimed individual medalist honors at the Phoenix-hosted tournament.
