STANFORD, Calif. – Peter Kuest tied for third individually as BYU men's golf ended up sharing ninth place at The Goodwin on Saturday at Stanford Golf Course.

"It's another strong finish for Peter (Kuest)," BYU head coach Bruce Brockbank said. "He's playing great golf. As a team, we played well for most of the final round but let it slip on the last few holes."

Kuest shot even-par for the second-straight day to remain at two-under for the tournament. In the final round, he bagged 16 pars and one birdie.

Carson Lundell finished strong to put up BYU's second-best overall score at nine-over for the tournament. He recovered from an eight-over 78 in the first round to post scores of 70 and 71 in the second and third rounds, respectively.

Rhett Rasmussen finished one stroke behind Lundell at 10-over. Kelton Hirsch and Brock Stanger both shot 15-over for the tournament.

As a team, BYU (+27) posted respective scores of 295 (+15), 282 (+2) and 290 (+10) in the three rounds on the par-70 course. The Cougars improved 10 places in the second round but fell back a couple spots on Saturday to claim a tie with Northwestern, Nevada and Oregon for ninth.

West Coast Conference teams Pepperdine (+23, 7th) and Santa Clara (+24, 8th) finished ahead of BYU. San Francisco (+27) tied the Cougars for ninth place and Saint Mary's (+41, T21st) and San Diego (+69, 27th) trailed behind.

BYU next competes on April 12 in the ASU Invitational.
