Nov. 22, 2011
EL PASO, Texas - In a gathering of 27 of the the best college golfers in the nation, Washington junior Chris Williams ended up tied for 15th at the 37th annual Western Refining All-American Classic on Tuesday.
Williams (Moscow, Idaho) shot 2-over 73 in today's final round and finished at +5 (218) for the 54-hole tournament held at El Paso Country Club.
Teeing off the 10th hole, Williams had an inconsistent start. He started with a bogey, followed by a birdie before scoring three-straight bogeys. Williams appeared to be headed back in the right direction when he eagled the par-4 18th hole to make the turn at +1. But, a bogey on No. 2 continued his back-and-forth round.
Birdies on No.'s 3, 6 and 9 were canceled out by a bogey on No. 4 and double bogey on No. 7.
Last year, Williams finished 12th at this same tournament.
Todd Baek (San Diego State), Jace Long (Missouri) and Cory Whitsett (Alabama) all ended regulation tied for first at -7, but Whitsett ended up taking home medalist honors by winning a playoff.
