Last Wednesday the Card was able to overcome a 9 shot deficit in the final round to win the Pac 12 Championship for the second straight year. The feat can be summed up best with one small fact: this is the first time in program history that we have won back-to-back conference championships. The Card managed to weather the tough conditions and improved its team score every round despite a slower first round at Palouse Ridge Golf Course in Pullman, Washington. Palouse Ridge served as a great venue. It plays fairly open off the tee, but some substantial elevation changes and constant wind with firm and fast greens made it a stout test. The course is surrounded by rolling hills and is located on Washington State University's campus.
While Maverick's play was exceptional, the final round was truly a team effort as our highest score of the day was a 72. Overall, freshman Franklin Huang turned in the second best tournament finishing in a tie for 11th while junior David Boote finished tied for 15th. For full results, click here.
