Men's Golf Finishes Fourth at Oregon Duck Invitational

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Vanderbilt men's golf team jumped five spots in the final round to finish tied for fourth place with a 10-over-par score of 874 at the Oregon Duck Invitational in Eugene, Ore. Arizona and Washington tied for the top spot in the tournament, which was played at the Eugene Country Club (Par 72, 6,854 yards).

After posting team rounds of 295 in each of the first two rounds, Vanderbilt recorded a score of four-under-par 284 Tuesday. The 284 was the best final-round performance in the 16-team field and is the Commodores' best performance in the past 13 rounds dating back to the 282 they shot Oct. 21 at the Tennessee Tournament of Champions. The fourth-place finish also is the team's best performance in the past four tournaments and is the third-best this season.

For the seventh time in as many tournaments this season, Brandt Snedeker led Vanderbilt individually. The senior entered the final round in a tie for 21st place, but shot a five-under-par 67 Tuesday to climb to the seventh spot with a three-round score of three-under-par 213. This is the first time this season Snedeker has finished out of the top three, coming up five shots short of the top three and six shots short of first place.

Following closely behind Snedeker was sophomore Mark Donnell, who finished tied for eighth place with a one-under-par score of 215. This is the second consecutive top-10 finish and second straight below-par performance for Donnell after he fired a one-under-par 141 to finish in a tie for sixth place this past week at the rain-shortened Cleveland Golf Collegiate Championship.

Sophomore Lance Goodson was next for the Commodores as he finished tied for 28th after posting a five-over-par 215. On the strength of a final-round 72, senior Craig Dunlap climbed 14 spots to finish tied for 58th with a 10-over-par 226. Rounding out the Commodore squad was senior Jason Dallas, who finished 80th with an 18-over-par 234.
