By finally breaking the "ball sports" championship drought, the Oregon men's golf team take home the Webfoot Award as the moment of the year for Ducks athletics. The National Championship proved to be an easy choice, as the golf team took home 62.5% of the vote. Coming in second place was the school record 18 track and field athletes that the Ducks will be sending to the Rio Olympics which claimed close to 20% of the vote. In third place came the men's basketball team claiming a #1 seed while in fourth came the women's basketball team signing the best class in school history. Not to mention the many write in votes for the Vernon Adams Jr. fourth down pass to Dwayne Stanford against Arizona State, although I'm fairly certain that will find a way to win on its own.

But for now it's the men's golf team who preserve to win the moment of the year award. By winning the National Championship, the men's team won their first national title in program history while defeating a national power in the Texas Longhorns. Of course, what made this moment so great was that the Ducks were able to do it in their own back yard as the championships were held in Eugene. With three playoff holes needed to decide who would take home the title, it was Eugene native Sulman Raza who played hero as he knocked down the title clinching putt in front of family and friends.
