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

From October to late November, frats, sororities, coops, dorms and groups of friends slugged it out on football fields, volleyball courts, bowling allies, and swimming pools.
At the same time, individuals and partners fought for domination of mini-golf courses, cross country trails, billiards tables, skeet shooting ranges, triatholon courses, and racquet ball, tennis, and badmitton courts.

few hours and anyone could participate.
"The program is for any OSU student unless they are a varsity player in the particular sport," explaines IM director Charles Fischer. "The majority, 80 or 90 percent, are people who are the so called average student on campus."
Fischer was proud to belong to the OSU intramural program, which dated back to 1930. "Students support the program very well, both financially and with their participation."
In fact, although OSU enrollment was down, intra-
mural participation increased. Unfortunately, this circumstance necessitated a new $10.00 team registration fee to make ends meet.
Diversity was one reason the program was strong. Fischer said, "We try to offer a lot of things that kids don't get many chances to compete in."
The quality of the program was another reason. "1 thought they (the IM office) did an excellent job. Everybody had a fair chance of winning the game," explained Chinh Nguyen.
But the bottom line was
fun. "A lot of them play it for fun," agreed Fischer. "You don't have to make the team."
Many teams did not even bother to practice. However, as Fischer pointed out, many of the teams did set out with the championship in mind.
"It's fun for my roommate and I," said Wilson Hall resident Nguyen. "It gives you a chance to get to know other people on your hall." All in all Nguyen said, "They ran a top notch program." □ by Brian Adams
