Bruins to Compete in Oregon Duck Invitational

March 21, 2003

The seventh-ranked UCLA men's golf team will compete in the Oregon Duck Invitational, Mar. 24-25, hosted by the University of Oregon.

The Eugene Country Club will play to a par of 72 over 6,854 yards. Monday's shotgun start begins at 8 a.m., featuring 36 holes of continuous golf. Teams will tee it up again on Tuesday in another 8 a.m. shotgun start.

En route to winning three tournaments this season, the Bruins have set several school scoring records, among them lowest 54-hole score and lowest single round score. They are currently averaging 11 strokes better per round than last year's team after seven events.

Individually, juniors Steve Conway and Roy Moon have led the team in scoring at 70.8 and 71.1 strokes per round. Conway became the first UCLA golfer in six years to win an individual title when he posted a six-under par score of 207 in capturing medalist honors at the Cleveland Classic.

Moon has chopped three strokes off his average from last season and leads the team with four Top 5 finishes. At the TaylorMade Classic last month in Hawaii, he fired a second round score of 62, eight-under par, to set a new school record for lowest single round and best score in relation to par.

Junior All-American John Merrick tied for third at the Cleveland Classic and ranks fourth on the team with a scoring average of 72.0.

Junior Travis Johnson has a scoring average of 72.1 with three Top 20 finishes.

Sophomore John Poucher (74.3) will be making his second appearance of the season at the Oregon event. Third year sophomore Steve Jones will be making his first ever collegiate appearance.
