Men's golf blasts school record for 54-hole tournament in fourth place finish at Palmer Foundation Invitational – LINK

 

AMARILLO - In its first tournament of the 2017-18 season, the Texas A&M University-Commerce men's golf team set the school record for low 54-hole tournament, as the Lions finished in fourth place at the Ryan Palmer Foundation Invitational.

The Lions shot a 54-hole score of 843 (-21, 282-276-285) to best the previous school record by 15 strokes. That record had stood since the City of Fort Worth Championship in the 1996-97 season.

 

Wilfredo Sanchez shot even par in the final round to finish in the top 10 at ninth place with a 7-under par 209 (66-71-72). This marks a career best for him by five strokes and is his sixth top 10 finish as a Lion.

 

Blake Hartford shot his second sub-70 round of the season with a 4-under par 68 Tuesday on the way to 12th place at 211 (-5, 69-74-68).

 

Lucas McCubbin was 1-over par in Tuesday's round and finished in 15th place at 212 (-4, 75-64-73). Zach Burch finished in 21st place after an even par round Tuesday, shooting 214  (-2, 75-67-72) for the event. Garrett Landers was in 50th place at 5-over par 221 (72-74-75)

 

St. Mary's won the tournament at 27-under par 837 after a round of 17-under par on Tuesday.  The Lions were six strokes away from the lead, and one stroke away from second place.

 

The Lions will be away from competition for three weeks until the first of three October tournaments at the Western New Mexico Fall Intercollegiate in Goodyear, Ariz., on October 2-3.
