Southern California claims West regional title

CLE ELUM, Wash. -- Top-ranked Southern California -- the defending national champion -- used a handful of birdies and key pars to erase a late deficit and win the NCAA West region by one stroke on Saturday at the Tumble Creek Club at Suncadia Resort safely advancing to the NCAA finals later this month.

The Trojans, battling cold and windy weather, finished at 12-over 876 (284-294-298), one better than second-place host Washington (877), which enjoyed a five-stroke lead on the back 9. Arizona State was third at 25-over 889.

NCAA West, Central and East regionals, each made up of 24 teams and finishing today, determine the championship final field. The top eight teams plus two individuals from each field advance to the championship round, scheduled for May 20-23 at the Tulsa (Oklahoma) C.C.
