Day 1 Recap

BREMERTON, Wash. - BYU golfer Joe Parkinson tied for second place after three rounds to help the men's team finish fifth at the Husky Invitational Tuesday. 

"We made some birdies coming in," BYU men's golf head coach Bruce Brockbank said. "It's a big, long hard golf course, but we keep coming here because it's a great challenge and we accomplished our goal of getting into the leader group." 

The BYU men's golf team dropped from third place after Monday's rounds to tie with West Coast Conference foe Saint Mary's at 10-over-par. Washington remained on top in the 15-team tournament to finish 17-under-par. 

Parkinson finished the third round with three birdies and an eagle on his 18th hole to finish one-under-par out of a total of 75 players. 

"Joe was fantastic," Brockbank said. "His eagle on his last hole helped the team." 

Jordan Rodgers improved to tie for 15th place at one-over-par and three birdies in his 2nd, 16th and 18th hole. Cole Ogden and Jordan Hammer both shot 10-over-par to finish in 52nd place, while Justin Keiley finished 12-over-par to tie in 57th place. 

Individual participants Stephen Archibald (+1) and Tommy Higham (+14) finished in sixth and 38th place, respectively. 

Brockbank hopes to be more consistent and focused going into their next tournament. 

Other WCC teams in the tournament were San Diego (+7), Gonzaga (+28), Pepperdine (+29) and Pacific (+31). Utah remained in last place at 43-over-par after three rounds.
