SEATTLE Last week, Herald sports editor Jeff Morrow and I attended the media day for the Pacific-10 Conference men's golf championships, which is being staged this week at Seattle Golf Club.
The tournament host is the University of Washington, and head coach Matt Thurmond spent about 30 minutes with membership of the Northwest Golf Media Association offering details on many aspects of the event.
Thurmond and the Huskies were basking in the glory of their victory at Stanford's U.S. Intercollegiate. Nick Taylor, medalist in the Palo Alto, Calif., event, is a semifinalist for the Ben Hogan Award, which is golf's version of the Heisman Trophy.
The 72-hole tournament runs Monday through Wednesday. In 2005, Washington State University staged the event at Walla Walla Country Club, and the Huskies staged a remarkable final-round rally to win the tournament.
