Updated: December 5, 2011

The University of Oregon men’s golf team was never able to completely shake off a slow start, but the No. 2 Ducks did climb back to a third place finish at the Gifford Collegiate Championship at CordeValle.

Led by its top golfer Eugene Wong (third place overall) Oregon ended the 54-hole event at 20-over par 1085, finishing behind champion USC (-8) and defending champion and tournament host No. 10 UCLA. For his solid fall play, Wong was named the Pac-12 Player of the Month for October.
