Kaneohe, HI—Senior Scott Pickering shot an outstanding one-over-par 73 on a course considered by many to be the toughest in the nation today to lead the Brigham Young University-Hawaii men's golf team to a first-place finish in a tri-match at the Ko'olau Golf Course. Pickering was the only player to shoot under 80 on any of the three teams and helped the Seasiders shoot a team score of 319 to defeat Hawaii Pacific by ten strokes and Chaminade by 28.
The match was a complete turn-around from last week's season opener that saw the Seasiders turn in a worse score and finish third on an easier course.
Riley Bunker shot an 80 for BYU-Hawaii with Trevor Gosar turning in an 82 and Dillon Dudley carding an 84 to complete the team scoring. Colten Lamb also competed, shooting an 89 for the Seasiders.
Hawaii Pacific's Travis Miller shot an 80 to lead the Sea Warriors and the best Chaminade could muster was a pair of 85's.
BYU–Hawaii will be back in action on Monday at the Sonoma State Invitational in Santa Rosa, California.
