TUCSON, Ariz. - Bolstered by balance from top to bottom, TCU led wire-to-wire in winning the 2010 National Invitational Tournament at Omni Tucson National Golf Course.

The Horned Frogs posted a five-under 283 Thursday en route to a three-round total of 852 (-12) to win by 10 strokes. Four of TCU's five golfers finished within two strokes of par and in the top-18 places of the field to easily distance themselves from the rest of the field. The five-man team totaled nine rounds at par or better in the 54-hole event.

Texas (852), SMU (865), Arizona (867) and California (870) rounded out the top-five places. SMU carded the low round of the day and the tournament, a 10-under 278, to earn a top-three finish.

Host Arizona, who finished in fourth place, was led by Tarquin MacManus. The junior from Cairns, Queensland, Australia, posted rounds of 68, 73 and 74 to finish in a tie for fifth place. It was his third top-10 finish of the season.

MacManus was one of three Wildcats to finish in the top 20 places, as senior Rich Saferian and junior Jonathan Khan finished in 12th and 18th places, respectively. Saferian carded an even-par 216, while Khan tallied a one-over 217.

The National Invitational Tournament was contested at Omni Tucson National Golf Course, a par-72, 7,400-yard layout.

Arizona will next be in action on Sunday, March 21, as the Wildcats begin play in the Callaway Collegiate Match Play Championship at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Course at Dove Mountain. The event continues through March 23.
