USC Beats UCLA by 5 at Silverado

Seventh-ranked USC came from behind in the final round to win the Silverado Showdown by five strokes over arch-rival UCLA, and Ellie Slama of Oregon State held off Allisen Corpuz of USC for the individual title at Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa.

The Trojans claimed their fourth victory of the season with a score of 291-290-281—862, 2-under-par, and the Bruins finished at 288-289-290—867, while Oregon State was third at 291-291-303—885, and Oregon totaled 295-298-293—886 to tie for fourth with Arizona State, which finished at 292-296-298—886.

“That was a really impressive round on an incredibly difficult PGA Tour golf course,” USC Coach Justin Silverstein said. “We got great effort from everyone in our lineup and that is what it’s going to take to succeed in the postseason.

“Malia (Nam) gave us a huge round (a 67 to tie for 13th) today and we needed every bit of it. Allisen continued her insanely good play and she should be considered one of the favorites for National Player of the Year.”
