GONZAGA AT THE 2011 KIKKOR HUSKY INVITATIONAL: Gonzaga University men's golf finished fifth at the rain-shortened 2011 Kikkor Husky Invitational. With the first day's 36 holes cancelled due to rain, half of the participating teams decided to head for home, hoping they could add another two-day tournament to their schedule. Gonzaga stayed and played the final day, shooting a 307 to finish four strokes ahead of West Coast Conference foe Santa Clara University and three shots behind another WCC foe in Pepperdine University. The University of Washington won the event, shooting a 293.

HEAD COACH ROBERT GRAY'S THOUGHTS ON THE UPCOMING TOURNAMENT: We're excited to head over to Gold Mountain Golf Course and play in this event again. Last year the 36 hole day got rained out but the weather looks to be great this year. Gold Mountain is a great test of golf and one of the best courses we'll play this year.
The field is always strong and this year is no exception. We'll see a few of our West Coast Conference rivals there, as well.
It will be nice to get in a few more rounds at the Gold Mountain Golf Course with the WCC Championship being held there next spring. Putting the ball in the right place is very crucial there. You have to really pay attention to the best places to be around the greens so you give yourself the best opportunity to get the ball up and down in case you miss the green.
We also need to take advantage of the par 5's and avoid making little mistakes. Something we didn't do last week.
