MEN'S GOLF From the Oregon State Invitational golf tournament in October to the Pac-10 Championships in May, the Men's Golf Team tried its best to keep its scores low. "You determine your own successor failure,"said Coach Rick Garber, "but we do play as a team." The team voted Todd Gjes-vold, a senior in Business, as the Team Captain. Gjesvold, whose average for the year was 75.7, was also chosen as the Outstanding Golfer of the Year. Sophomore Steve Altman was the recipient of the Barry Martin Inspirational Citizenship Award. This award goes to the golfer who most represents the qualities of leadership as a student athlete. Alan Cockerham was chosen as the Outstanding Freshman of the Year.

One of the year's highlights was the University of San Francisco Invitational in November at the Olympic Club Lakeside Course, the site of the 1987 U S. Open. The Beavers finished with a 10th place tie at 929. They were led by Gjesvold who was 19 over par with 76-74-82 on three rounds. "I played pretty well the first two rounds," Gjesvold said. "It was a thrill to play that course." Freshman Rob Nelson said, "We didn't play any other course of that caliber." Nelson scored 77-81-76 on the course for 21 over par. Coach Garber noted that the Beavers will be able to compare their scores with those of the pros when the 1987 U.S. Open is played there this summer. The Men's Golf Team took a break in February to play in the John Burns invitational at Honolulu, which was also attended by several teams from Japan. Although the Beavers finished 22nd, and even encountered some rain, the members enjoyed the tournament. Gjesvold and Altman led the team in that tournament with scores of 76-73-73 and 73-78-72 respectively. The team snacked on tropical fruit during the play. "There were pineapples on the course as tee markers," Altman said. "We brought knives and cut them up and ate them." "Golf isn't a major sport so you don't get much exposure," said Coach garber. "It takes a lot of self discipline to get out and practice in the rain in January." Gjesvold said it is the toughest sport to play and still get good grades. Team members practice all year, five days a week. They play every weekend and are out of town about 25 days each term for tournaments and qualifying rounds. These men play on the golf team because of their love for the sport. "I love to play golf," said senior Eric Gifford. "I've played my entire life. Being on the team gives me access to play while I'm in school." Ross Jesswein, a senior in Journalism, played four years for the Beavers. He has played since age 15. Nelson, who plans to play for the Beavers again next year, knows from personal experience that golf is a lifetime sport. He began to play at age five with his grandmother. Altman affirmed that "golf is a good sport because you can play it all your life." □ by Mary Kacmarcik 246 Golf

C.rrf; fUniirf From finding pineapples as tee markers in Hawaii to playing with red balls in the snow in Colorado, Beaver golfers enjoy this LlFETIM WOMEN'S GOLF When the sun started its consistent run, people seemed to automatically flock outdoors to enjoy it. Barbeques, sun bathing and one of the most popular exercising events, golfing, prevailed. The OSU Women's Golf Team, led by Walt Kennick and assistant coach Elaine Kennick, spent many afternoons following Spring Vacation on the green. "The season begins right after Spring Break and ends before Thanksgiving," Coach Kennick said. "We try to squeeze as much time in as we possibly can." The Lady Beavers'schedule was a busy one. The five-woman traveling team, which consisted of two se- niors, Sarah Bloemendaal and Karen Campbell, freshman Candi Jordan and sophomores Susan Rakozy and Sue Skjonsby traveled nationwide during the season. "Sarah and Karen played consistently well all year long," Kennick stated. "We will really be at a disadvantage without them next year." Tournaments held in Idaho and Utah, such as the B.Y.U. Invitational, filled the itinerary, but nice weather was not always a pre-requisite for playing. "We were in Colorado Springs for the Lady Falcon Tournament," Elaine Kennick remembered. "Playing with the red balls was interesting, but we were snowed out on the third day and had to cancel the whole thing!" The Pac-10 tournament in Tuscon, Arizona, brought nine of the best teams around together. "At least we beat the Ducks," Assistant Coach Kennick laughed. "Thank God for Oregon." Mr. Kennick really had his work cut out for him. With a less than adequate slice of the budget, team members did not have the money necessary to be adequately prepared for their games. "If we're going to compete in this league, we've got to get the girls," Coach Kennick stressed. "Other schools can afford to send out letters of intent that have something to offer. We don't have that option." Arizona, Oklahoma and San Jose were just a few of the top-rated teams OSU was up against during the year. "These girls are able to get scores very near to those women on protours achieve," Coach Kennick admitted. Other tournaments the team played in were the U of W Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational, the U.S.I.U. in San Diego and the Trojan-Bruin Classic. "Golfing is a good reason to go on vactaion," Coach Kennick stated. "But we work really hard to do our best at playing." □ by Lindy Humphreys Skip Zwahlen blasts out of a sand trap as he approaches the green. Ctrf lUnro Golf 245
