Darren Wallace tapped in his final putt, looked up and saw the herd
of University of Washington men’s golf teammates running onto the 18th
green to hail him.
For a split second, he crouched to escape the attention – the only
time in the three-day Pacific-10 Conference championships he did not
face the competition straight-up.
Wallace, a junior from Vancouver, B.C., highlighted the Huskies’ big
week at Seattle Golf Club by capturing medalist honors Wednesday
afternoon after his closing 2-under-par 70.
His 11-under 277 total beat teammate – and fellow Canadian – Nick Taylor (281) by four strokes.
