Pullman, Wash.--- The Washington State men's golf team will compete in their final event of the 1999-2000 season this weekend at the US Intercollegiate. The tournament will be played at the par-71, 6746 yard Stanford Golf Course.
Thirty-six holes will be played on Saturday, beginning at 8 a.m., while play on Sunday will consist of only 18 holes.
The field is made up of 18 teams from California, Oregon, and Washington. Five teams are ranked in the top-50 by the MasterCard Collegiate Polls, including the host school, 18th-ranked Stanford. Individually, six participants are ranked in the top-100, with Pepperdine's Michael Beard the highest at 66th.
Last year's event was won by BYU, who will not play in the 2000 edition. However, 1999 runner-up Oregon will compete.
Washington State will head to the Bay Area with the lineup of senior Eric Toomey (Snohomish, Wash.), sophomores Jon Reehoorn (Burlington, Wash.) and Jeremy Taylor (West Richland, Wash.), and freshmen Matt McGeeney (San Pedro, Calif.) and Dustin White (Pueblo West, Colo.).
