Winning linkers take some STROKES /\fter a slow start, the golf team started picking up momentum as the ghosts of the past came back once again. Men's golf has been the most successful sports at UH, with 16 national championships under former coach Dave Williams. The program has spawned several successful golfers on the pro tour, but one came back to coach at UH, Keith Fergus. Keith knows all about the past, but now he's pursuing hopes of a conference and national title for his Cougars. While early on the season didn't look to promising, a team win at Stephen F. Austin's tournament at Crown Colony sure was what the doctor or- dered. The team, lead by strengths like senior Greg Cox, Sophomore Dean Larsson, and freshman Anders Hansen, the second half sure looked brighter. The Cougars made a strong showing as the All-American Intercollegate Invitational, a tournament that has been sponsored by Houston since 1955. After two rounds, the linkers had moved in to third overall, and after the last eighteen they landed in second, behind Arkansas, down by 12 strokes. Cox was one stroke under par for a second place individual finish while Larsson came in third, one over par. "Those two guys turned in excellent rounds," Fergus said. "The conditions were real tough, and the course is hard. I was real proud of them." Larsson also came in strong as he fought for a share of the individual title at the SWC Championships. A putt that just in the right direction rimmed the cup put him one stroke behind the leaders for third place. "The conditions were very tough, and I had one of my best tournaments," said Larsson. "At the time I didn't know the putt cost me the title. I was very disappointed when I found out. With I lansen and Cox tying for eight the team put in a strong effort and came in second behind Texas. This a 11 o wed the Cougars to move into the NCAA Tournament where it would take a team effort to do well. A tournament preview in Golf Digest dredged up some old ghosts and predicted < that the winningest team in collegiate photo by Thomas Nguyen Sports had 100-1 odds of finishing in the top 15, but the Cougars turned on the steam and swung there way to 13th place. Hansen turned in an even par score for 19th place and senior Todd Caliva put in one over par for 23rd. The team finish was the first top 15 finish in the five years under Coach Fergus. Fergus cited the lack of national exposure for the lack of respect for the team. "We played well in numerous tournaments, but we never dominated many," said fergus. "We finished second in a highly competitive golfing conference behind Texas, but we weren't known enough to be thought of as a contender. I knew we had a good team/] If the NCAA's are any indication, the ghosts of the past will be laid to rest as a new Cougar winning tradition starts with the winning ways of the team and Coach Fergus.-Michael Edwards 117
