Pepperdine Ties for 22nd at NCAA Division I Golf Championship

June 2, 2006

Sunriver, Ore. - Senior Alex Coe fired a 1-under par 71 and Pepperdine posted an 8-over par 296 on Friday as the Waves concluded play at the 2006 NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championships tied for 22nd with a 22-over par total of 886.

Pepperdine's 54-hole total was 12 shots behind Brigham Young, which won a playoff with Coastal Carolina, to make the cut as the 30-team field was sliced to the Top 15 for Saturday's final round at the par-72, 7,630-yard Crosswater Golf Club at the Sunriver Resort in Sunriver, Oregon.

The Washington Huskies maintained a three-stoke lead at minus-7 and are one of only four teams that remain under par after a soggy third round. Oklahoma State, tied for second place with Wake Forest and Arizona State at 4 under, made a big jump, led by tournament leader Jonathan Moore, a redshirt freshman.

Moore fired a 3-under 69 on the par-72 course, giving him a 9-under 207 for the tournament. Despite a consistent downpour and windy conditions, Moore carded a 33 on the front nine on Friday. He had five birdies on the day, with his only blemish being a double bogey on the par-5, 687-yard 12th.

Washington, who led by three strokes after the second round, combined for a 5-over 294 and sits at 857 for the tournament, just ahead of the Cowboys, Demon Deacons and Sun Devils at 860.

Minnesota and Lamar are tied for fifth with a three-day total of 865 (+1). The Gophers combined to shoot a 287 (+4) on Thursday, while the Cardinals were 2 over par (292).

Wake Forest senior Kyle Reifers, who led the field after the first and second rounds, was 1 over (73) on Friday and one stroke back of Moore in second place at 208 (-8).
