Okla. State (Women), Pepperdine (Men) Claim No. 1 Seeds for Team Match Play Semifinals (Tuesday, 3-6 P.M. ET on GOLF Channel)

Women’s Semis: (1) Okla. State vs. (4) Arizona; (2) Ole Miss vs. (3) Duke Men’s Semis: (1) Pepperdine vs. (4) Oklahoma; (2) Arizona State vs. (3) Okla. State


ATLANTA, Ga. – (Oct. 25, 2021) – Oklahoma State sophomore Rina Tatematsu earned individual stroke play honors in the women’s division, while Preston Summerhays (Arizona State University) and Chris Gotterup (Oklahoma) shared low honors in the men’s division at the seventh annual East Lake Cup in Atlanta.

Tatematsu collected five birdies before finishing with an eagle on the closing hole at East Lake Golf Club to finish atop the women’s division at 5-under-par 67, four shots better than her closest competitor.

On the men’s side, Summerhays got off to a bogey, bogey start and then strung together six birdies, five on his inward nine and four in a row, en route to a four-under round of 68 and the clubhouse lead. Gotterup matched the low round amongst the men’s division by sinking a clutch 6-foot birdie putt on the 18th green.

“It means a lot,” said Tatematsu. “It is really such an honor just being able to come here to East Lake Golf Club. I’m very thankful for the opportunity”

“It’s a really hard golf course,” Summerhays said. “Starting bogey, bogey, especially for where I was on the first hole, I had a 6‑iron into a par‑5, going bogey, bogey to start, you don’t really want to get behind the eight‑ball on this course and I did exactly that. I had confidence in my game to kind of dig myself out of the hole and I got hot on the back nine and was able to make a lot of birdies.”

“It’s awesome. I haven’t won in a while and I had surgery a couple months ago, so it’s been a little while since I’ve been back in the winner’s circle,” said Gotterup. “I feel like I’m bringing something back to school. They gave a lot to me over the last couple months, so I feel like I’m somewhat returning the favor a little bit, but we’ve got a long way to go.”
