WICHITA, Kan. --- Three Washington State golfers fired career-best rounds at the Diet Pepsi/Shocker Classic, helping the Cougars tie the single round scoring mark with a 276, and finish in fourth place.
Jon Reehoorn spurred the second-round explosion with a 66, his best round as a Cougar. The Burlington, Wash., native finished the tournament tied for 24th after posting a five-over par 218. Two more Cougars added to the record-tying 276 with career-best rounds. Jeremy Taylor fired a 68, while freshman Isaac Woods followed with a 69.
Taylor was the biggest story of the tournament for Washington State. He overcame a slump that has plagued him throughout the spring by firing a four-under par 209 and tying for ninth overall. He shot rounds of 71, 68, and 70 over the two-day event.
Dustin White, who led the Cougars with a 69 on Monday, shot an even 213 and tied for 11th. Woods just missed out on his sixth top 25 finish of the year, tying for 27th with a six-over 219.
Four Wichita State players finished in the top 20 to lead the host school to the team medal. The Shockers finished 13-under par, and held off Colorado State and Wichita State, who tied for second, by six strokes.
Andreas Rydholm of Oklahoma City, a Division II school, fired three rounds under 70 to take top individual honors. Rydholm finished 11-under par and beat second place Nick Underwood of Wichita State by three strokes.
Washington State will tee it up again Apr. 21-22 at the U.S. Intercollegiate hosted by Stanford.
