CRESWELL, Ore. – The Oregon State men’s golf team crushed the 16-team Duck Invitational, including an11-stroke margin over third-place Oregon, to win the 25th Annual tournament behind an outstanding effort by all five Beaver players at the Ducks’ host event.

The Beavers concluded the two-day, 54-hole tournament with a 9-over 292-290-291--873 at the par-72, 7,165-yard Emerald Valley Golf Course to finish nine strokes better than second-place Minnesota (18-over 882) and 11 better than Oregon (20-over 884).

It’s the 37th team title in Oregon State history and the fourth under Reehoorn in his fourth season as the Beavers’ head coach (see the all-time tournament wins at the bottom of this story).

The conditions were much tougher on Tuesday than Monday’s nearly perfect weather, as rain and wind caused the majority of the scores to go up. It didn’t affect the Beavers, however, as they posted the best score on the final day to lead the tournament from start to finish.

T20 Alex Franklin (2) 72 72 79 223
T30 Scott Kim (4) 76 74 75 225

Freshman phenom Kevin Murphy posted the best finish of his young career, a tie for third place, with an even-par 72-73-71--216. He was one of only six players to shoot in red figures on Tuesday after carding an impressive 1-under 71 that featured four birdies and three bogeys.

Sophomore Brian Jung was solid both days for the Beavers as he finished in a tie for 10th place with a 3-over 74-71-74--219. He got to 1 under through 12 holes but the weather conditions caused him to bogey three of his final five holes for a 2-over final round.

Senior David Fink, who struggled in the first two rounds, bounced back on Tuesday with a 1-under 71 that included three birdies and a double bogey. The clutch round by the All-Pac-12 golfer moved him from a tie for 40th place through 36 holes into a tie for 15th with a 5-over 74-76-71--221.

Junior Alex Franklin was key to the Beavers’ first day success when he fired a pair of 72’s that put him in sole fifth place. He was unable to find the same magic on Tuesday as he shot a 7-over 79 to finish in a tie for 22nd with a 7-over 223.

Junior Scott Kim finished in a tie for 32nd with a 9-over 76-74-75--225 and Brett Johnson, who competed as an individual, shot a 7-over 73-75-75--223 for a tie for 22nd.

Jose Mendez of Minnesota and Jeremy Paul of Colorado shared the individual title with a 3-under 213.

The Beavers return to action on Monday, April 7 and Tuesday, April 8 at the Redhawk Invitational in Tacoma, Wash.
