Roseburg captures Southern Oregon Invitational

GRANTS PASS ' Sheldon's Ted Whitney fired a 2-over-par 74 at the Grants Pass Golf Course Saturday and the Irish posted a 308 team score, but it wasn't enough to unseat Roseburg in the two-day Southern Oregon Invitational Tournament.

The Indians took a 15-stroke lead into final day and won with a two-day total of 631. Sheldon was second at 633 and North Medford finished third with a score of 644.

My goal for our program is to become one of the best in the state and the only way to do that is exposure to stronger and stronger fields, North coach Kevin Klabunde said. Sheldon has won this tournament a couple of times, so it's a big tournament.

We played OK, but we had problems with the 18th hole. We had three double-bogeys and two bogeys, so we hurt ourselves on that one hole.

— Roseburg's Marc Goodell shot 77 Friday at the Rogue Valley Country Club and followed it up with a 77 at Grants Pass to finish second with a score of 154. Teammate Pat Jovin came in at 155 to tie for third with North Medford's Mike Berry, who also finished at 155. Jay Kirkwood of Grants Pass tied for fifth at 156. Rylan Wood of Crater shot 78 on the second day to finish in eighth at 158. Mark Palotai of Roseburg and Mike Cox from South Medford finished ninth and 10th, respectively.
