USC, Shaw tie for titles

Cameron Shaw of Cal shared the individual title with Sang Lee of Washington State and USC tied for first with Oregon in the Itani Quality Homes Collegiate at Palouse Ridge Golf Club in Pullman, Wash.

Shaw, a sophomore from Duffield, England, and Lee finished with identical scores of 68-65-71–204, 1 over par, with the Englishman providing the shot of the tournament when he holed his blind second shot from 258 yards for an albatross on the 10th hole.

“I haven’t really come close to getting one before,” said Shaw, who claimed the first victory of his college career after finishing second in a tournament a week earlier. “I was searching for my ball around the back of the green and a guy shouted that it had dropped. It was absolutely ridiculous.

“It was a little surprising (to win) to be honest. After last week, I knew I would have a good chance, but for it to happen so early in the season feels awesome. I have come a long way since I began at Cal. The coaches talk about quantum leaps and this was by far the biggest one for me.”

Rico Hoey of USC was third at 66-65-74–205, and Aaron Wise of Oregon shot 67-64-75–206 to tie for fourth with Jonathon Thomas of Utah, who wound up at 62-70-74–206.

Max Rottluff of Arizona State was sixth at 68-70-69–207, while Sebastian Crampton of Cal shot 72-64-72–208 and tied for seventh with Zach Foushee of Oregon, who totaled 71-67-70–208, and Alex Franklin of Oregon State, who came in at 67-68-73–208.

Bobby Gojuangco of USC posted a score of 69-67-73–209 to tie for 10th with Derek Bailey of Washington State, who totaled 71-69-69–209, Jonah Texeira of USC, who finished at 67-69-73–209, and Frank Garber of Washington, who wound up at 69-67-73–209.

USC carded a score of 273-270-291–834, 6-under-par, while Oregon finished at 277-264-293–834.

Cal was third at 279-271-287–837, followed by Washington State at 274-270-298–842, Washington at 282-278-286–846 and Arizona State at 276-274-297–847.

Oregon State finished seventh at 284-273-291–848, followed by Idaho at 276-278-296– 850, Utah at 273-279-303–855 and Boise State at 279-285-300–864.
