Golf Team Finishes Fifth At CGF Match Play

The University of Houston golf team finished fifth among a prestigious field of the Top 8 teams in the country Nov. 12 at the 2000 Collegiate Golf Foundation National Match Play Team Championship held in Estero, Florida.

The Cougars recorded one win with a pair of defeats in the innovative event that featured the nation's top college golf programs in a unique match play competition. Houston dropped its opening match to Georgia, the No. 1 team in the country and No. seed in the tournament, but rebounded with a 4-1 win over Texas in the second round.

In the win over Texas senior All-America candidate Andy Sanders defeated UT's Jason Hartwick 2-up. Junior Wade Ormsby beat J.J. Wall 1-up while sophomore Simon Robinson downed Matt Dobyns 2-up. Houston true freshman Scott Ferguson stormed John Klauk 4 and 2 to round out the Cougars four wins in the head-to-head competition with its state-rival. The lone setback was true freshman Brad McIntosh falling to Matt Brost 4 and 2.

The win over Texas gave Houston a chance to play No. 2 ranked Clemson for fourth place in the weekend event. The Cougars could not pull off back-to-back wins and fell 4-1. Houston's lone victory was Robinson's win over Ben Duncan, 4 and 3.

The match play event was UH's final competition of the semester. The Cougars will return to action beginning in the spring. The full match play results are as follows...
