PALM DESERT, Calif. (Feb. 19, 2017) -- The Oregon men's golf team hasn't missed a beat since defeating University of Texas in the NCAA championship last May. The national champs captured the Wyoming Desert Intercollegiate Sunday, their 2nd win in three events this spring.

Oregon capped off a wire-to-wire win with a total of 26-under 838 (282-271-285). Ducks freshman Norman Xiong shared medalist honors with Wyndham Clark at 11-under. Clark had to eagle the par-5 18th hole to tie his freshman teammate.

Clark and Xiong have been provided an impressive 1-2 punch so far this spring as neither of them have finished outside the top-10 in three events. Xiong, who graduated Temescal Canyon High School a semester early to join Oregon this spring, had posted a T-4 and T-7 in the Arizona Intercollegiate and Amer Ari Invitational prior to today's win.

Clark's win has further cemented him as the nation's top-ranked golfer. The Oklahoma State transfer is making the most of his new opportunity at Oregon with three top-six finishes in the fall and now two wins and a T-10 so far this spring.

University of Colorado finished in 2nd place with a three round total of 284 (291-266-290). The final-round was a complete turn around from yesterday as no scores in the 60's were shot. Texas Tech finished in third at 850 (292-278-280) while Kansas (293-276-293) and TCU (289-288-285) finished tied for fourth at 862.
