USC and Washington shared the title Feb. 20 at The Prestige at PGA West's Norman Course in La Quinta, Calif. The Pac-12 rivals finished at 1-under 851, five shots clear of UCLA and Texas Tech.
USC, No. 8 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings, shot 6-under 278, the final round's only sub-par score, to catch No. 3 Washington, which shot 286 Wednesday. This was the second consecutive first-place finish for Washington, which tied UCLA at the Amer Ari Invitational before losing in a playoff. USC finished third in all three of its fall stroke-play starts before a fourth-place showing at the Amer Ari.
UCLA's Pedro Figueiredo won the individual title, shooting 8-under 205 (71-67-67) to finish five shots ahead of the field. USC's Anthony Paolucci, Oklahoma State's Jordan Niebrugge and Washington's Chris Williams finished second. The victory was the second of Figueiredo's career.
