Men’s Golf Finishes Third at American Championships

Martino Tied for Lead at American Championships

Robinson Ties For Sixth Overall

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. - Nationally ranked Arizona State placed three of its golfers in the top 10 on its way to winning the team title at the 24th annual Cleveland Golf Classic held at the North Ranch Country Club in Westlake Village, Calif., on Tuesday (Mar. 6). Houston finished ninth among the 15-team field with a rained-shortened total of 604 (36-over par).

The Sun Devils shot a two round total of 581, including 287 on Tuesday, to finish six strokes ahead of second place TCU (587). Oregon State was third (592), followed by Washington (598) and three teams tied for fifth with a score of 600.

David Yarnes of Oregon State, who shot the day's lowest score on Monday (70), finished with a solid 72 on Tuesday to win individual medalist honors with an even par total of 142. Yarnes was one stroke better than runners up Matt Jones and Jin Park of Arizona State and Steve Conway of UCLA. Houston sophomore Simon Robinson fired back-to-back scores of 73-73 for a two-round total of 146 to finish tied for sixth and four shots off the lead. All-America candidate Andy Sanders tied for 24th with a seven-over 149.

Weather was the determining factor in the tournament. Rain and wind allowed for only one difficult round on Monday, as just three teams shot under 300 and only three golfers shot par or lower. Tuesday's round featured sunnier skies, no rain and yielded generally lower scores for the teams involved, with nine teams shooting under 300 and 10 golfers at par or lower.
