Cougar senior Hank Frame also performed dominantly with a score just one shy of the co-champions. Frame tied for third place with his three-round score of 6-under (210). He was 2-under in Tuesday's final round, sharing third place with Emilio Cuartero of Missouri. This was Frame's sixth top-10 finish in the seven tournaments the Cougars have competed in this year.

"Hank (Frame) has been an absolute rock for us," Cougar Head Coach Garrett Clegg said. "He has been phenomenal. Michael (Anderson) is a great player and he hasn't quite played as well as he would like. He's from Phoenix and for him to come and win his first tournament in his hometown is really special."

The Washington State University men finished runner-up with a team score to par of 4-under (860). They broke their tie from with Utah Valley from day one of the tournament and surpassed Gonzaga with their performance in the final round Tuesday. WSU and Missouri reversed the tournament standings of 2010, which had WSU as tournament champion and Missouri as runner-up. This marks Missouri's second team title in the four-year existence of the Snowman Getaway (first title was in 2011).

"We played well," Clegg said. "We played poorly in the opening 18. If we had played well in the opening round, we really could have had a chance to beat Missouri. They are a ranked ahead of us and are a better team than us at this time, but we are close. We had a chance to run them down but just didn't quite make it happen."

Washington State's Kyle Hurt, a redshirt junior, also placed in the tournament's top 10, but was competing as an individual in the tournament. Hurt carded scores of 74, 69, and 72 in the three respective rounds of the tournament (-1, 215).

The Cougars look next to the Bandon Dunes Championship in Bandon, Ore. The tournament will be hosted March 8-10 by Gonzaga - (Article courtesy of WSU Men's Golf)

Just Sayin'

By:  Chris Gregor - August 22, 2014

cg bust 125aThe WSGA recently concluded its version of the State Mid Amateur championships – The men's and women's championships were played concurrently over the par-70 RMG Oakbrook course in Tacoma – Tom Hale won the men's event with a 2-day total of 143 (+3), while Shawn Farmer won the women's title at +10 – That's all fine and dandy, but those results aren't what inspired me to write this article
