Hawks compete in Rockford:
Oregon played at the weather-shortened the Jefferson Invite, which was called due to rain after 13 holes, with all scores reverting back to nine-hole totals.

Oregon finished at +19 as a team, and was led by Carson Buck and Mitchell Nehrkorn, who earned a top-five finish at +1.
