“It was a good finish for the first event of the year on a golf course that plays very tough and plays long and firm,” UW Director of Golf Joe Jensen said. “We played solid both days and it is unique we had three different players lead us and that shows the depth of this team. We have a ton to build on and I was pleased with the final round and how we bounced back from the first day.  We will get ready to head down to Air Force, which will be a similar course and will get some practice and be ready on Sunday.”

Jimmy Dales and Patrick Azevedo finished the final round firing an even par score of 70 to finish +5 (215) for the event.

Jaren Calkins fired a 76 (+6) in the final round and finished with his teammates tied for 21st place at +5 (215) over three rounds. Kristof Panke finished tied for 25th after shooting a 72 (+2) on Thursday for a three-round total of 216 (+6). Davis Seybert finished play with a 74 (+4) and a total of 222 (+12) for the tournament for share of 48th place.

Noah Wagner and Evan Johnson played as individuals with Wagner finishing with a three-round score of 226 (+16) and Johnson at 228 (+18). Johnson had a hole-in-one yesterday in his first college event on the second hole.
