First fall tournament in the books for men's golf
MONTEREY, Calif. – The BYU men's golf team shot a 279 (-1) in the final round of the Pasadera Collegiate Invite on Tuesday.
Pepperdine won the tournament with a combined score of 794 (-246). Loyola Marymount finished second 822 (-18), San Diego 827 (-13) third with Saint Mary's 829 (-11) fourth and BYU 842 (+2) in fifth.
"We couldn't get much going in any round," head coach Bruce Brockbank said. "I think this was a wake up call for us. There are a lot of great teams in our conference and we will have to step it up."
Carson Lundell put up a final round of 70 (E), matching his second round after a first-round 67 (-3) and tied for 14th overall.
Playing in his first tournament as a Cougar, David Timmins shot the best round on the team Tuesday, carding a 66 (-4) after starting the day at two-over after Monday. Timmins finished in a tie for 17th place.
Brock Stanger shot a 71 (+1) to finish in 22nd while Cole Ponich and Kelton Hirsch each recorded a 72 (+2) in the final round, finishing 29th and 34th, respectively.
