Nov. 6, 2013
PRINCEVILLE, Kauai, Hawaii - All five Pepperdine men's golfers shot under-par during the third and final round of the Warrior Princeville Makai Invitational on Wednesday, helping the Waves to end their fall season on a strong note.
The Waves shot a 9-under 279 at the par-72 Princeville Makai Golf Club, which was their best round of the fall. It also tied for the fourth-best team score of the day, though unfortunately it was only enough to move the Waves one spot up on the final leaderboard. Pepperdine finished in 12th place overall with a 9-under 855 (290-286-279).
During the final round, senior Jeremy Sanders (Chatsworth, Calif./New Community Jewish HS/Redlands) and sophomore Nick Thomas (Westlake Village, Calif./Chaminade College Prep/California) both shot 3-under 69s, senior Parker Page (Louisville, Ky./Ballard HS) had a 2-under 70 and junior Kevin DeHuff (Coto de Caza, Calif./Santa Margarita Catholic HS) and sophomore Frederick Wedel (The Woodlands, Texas/The Woodlands HS) both posted 1-under 71s.
Three Waves recorded an eagle on Wednesday: Sanders on the par-5 18th hole, Wedel on the par-5 fifth hole and DeHuff on the par-4 14th hole.
Both Sanders and Wedel played all three rounds below-par, and both tied for 20th place overall with a 5-under 211. Both Sanders (71-71-69) and Wedel (71-69-71) had four birdies in addition to their eagles today.
Page tied for 47th place with an even-par 216 (74-72-70), Thomas tied for 52nd place with a 1-over 217 (74-74-69) and DeHuff tied for 83rd at 225 (77-77-71). Page had three birdies against just one bogey on Wednesday. Thomas had four birdies, all in a seven-hole stretch toward the end of his round. DeHuff had three birdies to go with his eagle.
The Waves will be back in action at the Sea Best Invitational in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., on February 3-4.
