NCAA Division I Championship: UCLA By 1

WEST LAFAYETTE, Indiana (May 31, 2008) --It was an exciting finish at Purdue's Kampen Course, as the NCAA Division I Championshiop came down to the wire.

UCLA clung to alternating one, two and three-shot leads during the final few holes. The UCLA lead was one with two players from UCLA and two from USC remaining on the course: freshman Tim Sluiter and sophomore Rory Hie for USC and Kevin Chappell and Eric Flores for UCLA.

Chappell holed a chip shot on the 17th hole to save bogey while Sluiter had to settle for double bogey. Meanwhile on 18, both Hie and Flores carded bogeys. This left USC one shot behind Stanford, two behind UCLA. Sluiter had about a 20-foot birdie putt on 18 to put pressure on UCLA and tie Stanford, but it stopped virtually a hair short of the hole.
