The Arizona State men’s golf team set out for its fifth tournament of the spring season in which they won in dominating fashion, thanks to medalist Chun An Yu.
The Sun Devils shot a combined 824, translating to 28-under par at the Bandon Dunes Collegiate, hosted by Gonzaga. Meanwhile, the second-place Clemson Tigers finished a whole 13 strokes behind ASU at 15-under.
Chun An Yu led the way for Arizona State, as he went all three rounds under par to shoot a combined 13-under. An opening round 65 for Yu tied the lowest round in the tournament, but his competitors could not stay consistent throughout the weekend.
Clemson’s Turk Pettit had the other 65, but finished with a 202, good enough for third place and two strokes worse than Yu.
The rest of the Sun Devil golfers fared well, with two others finishing under par. Alex Del Rey finished second for ASU after shooting a 209 and 4-under par (66-72-71). Freshman Koichiro Ishika finished the last day 4-under par to shoot him up to T-13 and 2-under par for the tournament.
Sun Devil Mason Anderson hit a bump in the road the first day, but turned around with back-to-back 68s to finish T-26 and 2-over par. Rounding out the Sun Devil squad was Blake Wagoner who finished T-41 and 5-over par.
Arizona State beat out the likes of Pac-12 opponents such as Washington State, Utah and Oregon who finished third, fourth and sixth, respectively.
The Sun Devils also had five golfers compete individually, before Paul Chaplet withdrew on the eve of the final round. Leading all individual golfers and finishing T-9 with teammate Del Ray was Tobias Eden, who also shot 4-under par. Eden was followed by another individual golfer, and ASU teammate, Anthony Truong who finished T-15 at 1-under par for the tournament.
Rounding out the final two ASU individuals were Jino Sohn (T-48) and Ryan Douglass, (T-53), who finished a stroke apart, at 6-over and 7-over par, respectively.
Arizona State will look to win back-to-back when they travel to Stanford from March 29-31 to participate in The Goodwin, at Stanford golf course.
