Golf finishes seventh at Morris Williams
April 5, 2011
Austin, Tex. - The University of Texas at Arlington golf team completed the Morris Williams Intercollegiate Tuesday with their best round of the tournament to finish in seventh place at the prestigious event.
The Mavericks shot a team score of 299 Tuesday, which was their best round by seven shots as they improved each round.
"We improved each round and had a solid finish to a tournament where the conditions were difficult on day one," UTA head coach Jay Rees said. "We finished ahead of two top 50 teams and that will help improve our national ranking."
Hunter Brown fired an even par 71 Tuesday to finish as the top UTA individual in a tie for 17th. The sophomore had six birdies in the final round and would have posted a lower score if it were not for a pair of double bogeys.
Zack Fischer, who has moved into the top 100 individuals in the country, shot a four-over 75 Tuesday and finished in a tie for 26th. The senior had four birdies on his card Tuesday. Paul McConnell joined Fischer in finishing in a tie for 26th after shooting 78 Tuesday.
Carson Kallis played as an individual and also had his best round of the tournament with a 75 Tuesday to finish in a tie for 57th.
