SCAC Interactive - Teeing off with Oglethorpe University, the 2009 National Champions of Golf

With a final-round 289, the Oglethorpe University men's golf team earned the school's first-ever national title, winning the 2009 NCAA Division III Men's Golf Championship Saturday afternoon at the PGA Village in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

Oglethorpe, which started the day in second place and four shots from third-round leader Methodist University, finished four shots clear of University of La Verne and seven shots better than Methodist. The Petrels shot a four-day total of 12 over par 1164.

The national championship is the sixth for an SCAC team and the first since DePauw University won the 2007 Division III Women's Basketball Championship.

Just a week after its National Championship head coach Jim Owen, Senior Hap Kaufold and Junior Scott Pugh all had the chance to reflect on the weekend.
