LELAND, N.C. -- UTA men's golf earned its highest finish of the spring season on Monday with a tie for fourth at the Cape Fear National Intercollegiate. Tanner Gore had a career showing, also tying for fourth in the individual standings.
The Mavericks registered a two-day total of 910 (306-297-307) and claimed fourth among the 16-team field, hosted by Appalachian State.

Jacksonville State led through all three rounds to win the championship 26-over 890.
Gore shot a 2-over 74 in Round 3 to total a 222 on the week and earn the best finish of his career. The sophomore was a stroke over after the front nine and a birdie and bogey on the final holes pushed him 2-over for the day. Senior Zach Galliford was slotted in a tie for 12th place, scoring a 224, including an even par performance in the second round.
Aaron Guanlao carded a 16-over 232 while sharing a three-way tie for 34th. Josh Radcliff dropped into a tie for 48th, but shot his lowest round of the week on Monday, a 76 to bring his total to 236.
