BYU ties for 14th at The Goodwin
STANFORD, California – Despite a top-20 finish from Jordan Rodgers, BYU men’s golf finished in a tie for 14th at The Goodwin.
“There were some good things out there though and we had a couple of good scores," BYU head coach Bruce Brockbank said. "This one was definitely respectable. For the most part, our guys hung in there really well. The highlight was Rodgers. He didn't putt quite as well today, but overall he was great."
BYU tied for 14th along with San Jose State at 18-over-par. UAB and Southern Methodist both took home the top prize, finishing in a tie for first place. Out of the West Coast Conference teams in the tournament, Saint Mary’s finished the highest, taking seventh place.
Rodgers, a senior, led the Cougars by tying for 14th place (-4), his sixth top-20 finish of the season. This is the sixth tournament in a row that Rodgers has had the best scores on the squad.
After a solid first two rounds, junior Tommy Higham dropped to a tie for 39th, shooting two-over-par. Although freshman Zach Pritchard shot the same score as his second round, he fell to a tie for 73rd (+7).
BYU is off again until the West Coast Conference Championship on April 13-15 in Somis, California.
