MARANA, Ariz. – Severe weather conditions took its toll on the Oregon State men’s golf team at the Pac-12 Championship on Saturday, as the Beavers shot a 34-over 394 and slipped to ninth place at the three-day, 72-hole tournament, which concludes on Sunday.
The first two rounds were slated for Friday but the second 18 was suspended due to darkness. The Beavers got up early and posted their best round thus far in the tourney, a 6-over 366, to put them in a tie for fourth place. They were unable to find the same results in the third round and now sit in ninth place with a 53-over 373-366-394--1,133 with 18 holes to play.
The final round of the six-count-five format will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday with tee times off the first and 10th holes. Live scoring is available at golfstat.com.
