Rasmussen, BYU finish fourth at Olympic Club
SAN FRANCISCO – Rhett Rasmussen's strong tournament helped BYU men's golf secure a tie for fourth place at the Olympic Club Intercollegiate on Tuesday.
"Rhett (Rasmussen) had a very solid tournament," BYU head coach Bruce Brockbank said. "The wind blew hard today and made the course very challenging. We didn't putt well this week and need to work on it."
Rasmussen finished tied for fourth with an overall score of two-under. He shot even-par on the final day after two one-under rounds on Monday.
Peter Kuest tied for ninth with a one-over. He put up a 66 (-5) in the second round, which tied for the round's best score. Kelton Hirsch finished at nine-over. Carson Lundell and Chad Hardy posted scores of 13-over and 15-over, respectively.
After shooting a 285 (+1) in the first two rounds of the tournament, the Cougars finished with a 298 (+14) in the third round to wind up at 16-over.
San Francisco tied for fourth with BYU. Santa Clara (+10) finished in third as the West Coast Conference's top representative. Loyola Marymount (+27) and Pacific (+40) placed seventh and ninth, respectively.
The Cougars next play at the Goodwin Invitational at Stanford, beginning March 28.
