Bruins Finish Fourth at Pac-10 Championship

April 27, 2005

The 14th ranked UCLA men's golf team finished fourth at the 46th Pacific-10 Men's Golf Championship, hosted by Washington State at Walla Walla Country Club.

The Pac-10 Championship is a 72-hole, six-player-count-five tournament.

The Bruins, who started the day in second place, posted a team score of 371 (+16) in the final round. UCLA's score of 1,432 (+12) was seven shots out of first place and four shots behind third place Arizona at 1,428 (+8). Arizona State and Washington tied for the conference title. Oregon finished fifth at 1,436 (+16), Stanford placed sixth at 1,438 (+18) and USC was seventh at 1,444 (+24). California placed eighth at 1,449 (+29), followed by Washington State at 1,458 (+38) and Oregon State at 1,461 (+41).

UCLA's finish at the conference tournament clinched the title for the Bruins in the Lexus Gauntlet battle, which UCLA now leads 60-40. The Lexus Gauntlet is a year-long competition between the two rivals in common sports with the winner receiving a perpetual trophy.

Individually, sophomore Joakim Renstrom and senior John Poucher led the way for the Bruins on Wednesday. Renstrom, who rebounded from a first-round 77, fired a two-under par 69 in the final round. Although he tied for 19th place at 287 (+3), he played the final 54 holes in three-under par. Poucher tied for 14th place at 285 (+1) after posting a final round score of 73 (+2).

Freshman Kevin Chappell was the Bruins' highest finisher, tying for seventh place at 283 (-1). Daniel Im tied for 33rd at 292 (+8), Chris Heintz tied for 38th at 294 (+10) and Peter Campbell tied for 41st at 295 (+11).
