Jay, Bill Haas roll to record Umpqua Bank golf victory | Northwest
PORTLAND — The father-son duo of Jay and Bill Haas birdied the first 12 holes, eagled the 13th and rolled to a record-setting win in The Umpqua Bank Challenge on Tuesday.
Bill Haas shot a 12-under 60, breaking The Reserve North Course record, and the duo finished 26 under par, eight shots ahead of second-place Scott McCarron and Steve Elkington, the defending champions, and two shots better than the tournament record.
Billy Andrade and Brad Faxon set the tournament record of 24 under in 2001 at The Reserve, and Elkington and McCarron matched it last year at The Portland Golf Club.
Curtis Rystadt of Portland fired a two-day total of 136, 8-under par, to win medalist honors in stroke-play qualifying at the 37th Pacific Northwest Men's Master-40 Amateur Championship at Wildhorse Resort and Casino in Pendleton, Ore.
Rystadt finished three strokes ahead of Dan Pickens of Pocatello, Idaho. Kevin Burnett of Bellevue posted the day's low round — a bogey-free, 4-under-par 68 — to grab the No. 3 seed.
The top 32 players qualified for match play beginning Wednesday.
• The Washington women got the most first-place votes but finished second to rival Oregon in the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association preseason poll. The Huskies return six of seven runners from last year's NCAA runner-up team.
• Washington's Dylan Tucker-Gangnes was named Pac-12 men's soccer player of the week after scoring goals in wins over Gonzaga and Cal Poly. The Huskies (2-0) are ranked 25th in the latest Soccer America poll.
