In a tournament filled with ups and downs, WSU men’s golf placed seventh in the Pac-12 Championships at Rolling Hills Country Club in California on Wednesday.
This marks the Cougars’ best finish at the Pac-12 Championships.
The Cougars’ even par performance in the final round was not enough to push the team up the leaderboard as they dropped one spot from their sixth-place standing after the third round Tuesday.
Senior Zach Anderson led the Cougars, earning a four-round total score of 275 (-9) to tie for eighth place.
After a seven-birdie performance Tuesday where he shot a 65 (-6), Anderson was tied for fourth place and in contention going into the final day. But it was too little too late, as his final round 70 (-1) was not enough to move him up the leaderboard.
With the top-10 finish, Anderson earned himself his highest career finish at the Pac-12 Championships in his final event as a Cougar.
Senior Derek Bayley and juniors Grant Cole and AJ Armstrong all shot a four-round score of 283 (-1).
Armstrong was sitting in 12th place overall going into Wednesday after shooting back-to-back rounds of 68 (-3). However, his five bogeys in the final round slid him down into a tie for 23rd place.
After a slow start in the first two rounds for Cole, he shot three under par in his last two to end the tournament on a positive note.
Bayley played consistently throughout, with his second round 74 (+3) being the only outlier in his final time taking the course for WSU.
The conclusion of the Pac-12 Championships brings an end to the Cougars’ season.
