    The USC and UCLA men's golf teams, ranked No. 5 and No. 8, respectively, by Golfweek.com, battled to a tie on Thursday (May 10) in a dual match at the Los Angeles Country Club.

    In a match that went longer than five hours, the crosstown rivals finished deadlocked at 2.5-2.5. USC earned five Lexus Guantlet points in the yearlong, all-sport competition between the two schools because the tiebreaker reverts back to the Pac-10 Championship, which the Trojans won on April 25.

    USC got on the board first at No.1 singles with freshman Jamie Lovemark beating UCLA junior Kevin Chappell, 3 & 2. The match was all-square at the seventh until Chappell dropped two points with bogeys at the eighth and ninth. He would not recover on the inward nine.

    UCLA's Craig Leslie defeated USC senior Jordan Nasser, 4 & 3. Leslie sealed the victory with a conceded one-foot birdie at the 15th hole after Nasser missed his long birdie attempt there.

    Matches two, three and four each carried to the final hole. USC freshman Rory Hie almost made up a 3-down deficit on UCLA's Daniel Im, the 2006 Pac-10 individual champion, but the Trojan first-year player fell 1-down.

    Senior Joshua Wooding and UCLA freshman Jason Kang halved their round.

    Sophomore Tom Glissmeyer took a 1-up lead after opponent Erik Flores bogeyed the 17th hole. Glissmeyer's bogey on the 18th was good enough to keep his lead for a 2-up win.
