Nick Killpack - Men's Golf - Senior - St. George, Utah
Nick enjoyed a solid month of golf as he placed in the top 10 at the Fresno State Lexus Classic and followed it up with a strong performance at the Morris Williams Intercollegiate.
At the Fresno State Lexus Classic, he came in ninth place overall at 1-over-par in a field of 104 golfers. He ended the first round at 1-under 71 and finished the third round at even-par after scoring four birdies. His strong performance helped the Cougars to a sixth-place finish in the 20-team tournament. The ninth-place finish was his best of the season and third best of his BYU career.
Killpack was consistent throughout the month as he finished the Morris Williams Intercollegiate in 29th place overall at 15-over-par. He improved his stroke amount in each successive round, completing the tournament with a 3-over-par third round after making three birdies on the day. With the effort, he jumped from the No. 51 individual spot after two rounds to his final mark at No. 29.
His stroke average of 74.20 is third best on the team.
