COLUMBUS, Ohio-The Ohio State men’s golf team finished 11th at The Prestige at PGA West in La Quinta, Calif, Tuesday. The 54-hole, 18-team tournament was contested at the Greg Norman Course (par 72, 7,156).

Conditions were wet during the final day of the event after periods of heavy rain, which halted play during the second round, soaked the course Monday. Several holes from Round 2 were completed before third round action Tuesday.

The Buckeyes shot 897 (302-298-297) for the tournament.

Ohio State freshman Dan Rush (Cleveland, Ohio/St. Ignatius) tied for 17th-place to lead the Buckeyes. This is his career-best finish in three collegiate tournaments. He fired rounds of 73-72-74=219 (+3).

UCLA was the team champion, winning by 10 strokes. The Bruins shot 860 (280-291-289) over the two-day event to finish 4-under par, the only team to break par at the tournament. BYU placed second with a score of 870 (295-291-284 +6).

Tim Cha of UC-Irvine and Danny Zimmerman of Illinois tied for medalist honors after both shot 70 over the final 18 holes to finish at 213 (-3) for the tournament.

The Buckeyes complete the fall portion of their 2005-06 schedule Oct. 28-30 at the Landfall Tradition in Wilmington, N.C.
