Tallies a three-round 221
TUCSON, Ariz. ?- The University of Arizona men’s golfer Mark Lamb finished in a tie for 22nd place Tuesday at the Western Refining College All-America Golf Classic in El Paso, Texas.
Lamb, a sophomore from Haddington, Scotland, shot a final-round 76 (+5) to finish with a three-round total of 221 (+8). His one-over 72 to open the event was his best effort of the 54-hole event. Lamb finished 17 strokes behind Texas’ Matthew Rosenfeld, who won the tournament on the first hole of a sudden death playoff.
The Western Refining College All-America Golf Classic is an invitation-only event open only to All-America honorees from the previous season. Lamb earned honorable mention All-America honors from the Golf Coaches Association of America in 2003-04.
The event was contested at the El Paso Country Club, a par 71, 6,781-yard layout.
This was the last event for the Wildcats this fall. Arizona will next be in action on Jan. 31-Feb. 1 when it hosts the PING-Arizona Intercollegiate.
