Sept. 21, 2010
AUBURN, Wash. -
The Oregon State men's golf team, ranked No. 21 according to GolfStat.com, concluded play at the season opening Kikkor Golf Husky Invitational, Tuesday, with a sixth place finish.
Four of the Beavers' five golfers posted improved scores in Tuesday's final round than they had tallied in the second round yesterday. In addition, OSU's four counting scorers combined to record a single bogey on the final holes of play.
"This was a good way to end our first tournament of the season," first-year head coach Jon Reehoorn said. "We got off to a bit of a slow start again today but we finished well and sunk a few birdies at the end."
Three Beavers fired subpar rounds with Jonnie Motomochi and Alex Moore each carding 2-under-par 70's and David Fink finished at 1-over 71. Morten Madsen completed Tuesday's scoring with a 2-over 74. Nick Sherwood recorded five birdies on the day but finished with a 3-over 75.
Motomochi finished as the Beavers tournament leader with a final tournament score of 1-under (70-75-70) 215 to finish 14th overall. Moore's second straight subpar round left him tied for 21st at 3-over (78-71-70) 219.
"Jonnie played great again today," Reehoorn said. "If he can continue to play like he did this week it will be a huge factor to the success of this team this year."
The Kikkor Golf Husky Invitational was a two-day, 54-hole tournament played at Washington National Golf Course, a 7,034-yard, par-72 course. Thirty-six holes were played on Monday with the round on Tuesday.
