                Wildcats post lowest team total of the season

               

TUCSON, Ariz. ?- For the first time this season all five golfers finished under par for a tournament as the University of Arizona finished sixth Friday at the John Burns Intercollegiate at Leilehua Golf Club in Wahaiwa, Hawaii.

 

Henry Liaw, Nathan Tyler, Travis Esway Trey Denton, and Josh Esler each carded under-par tournament totals to give the Wildcats a 31-under par total of 833, which placed the team sixth.  It was Arizona’s lowest tournament total of the season and tied for the fourth-lowest tournament total in relation to par in school history.

 

SMU came from behind to win the 19-team event with an 823 total (-41), one stroke ahead of Brigham Young.  New Mexico (830), San Diego State (831) and Colorado State (832) rounded out the top five places.

 

Junior Henry Liaw carded a final-round 71 (-1) to move into a tie for 18th place at 208 (-8).  In his last three team events, Liaw is a combined 21 strokes under par.  He’s been Arizona’s top finisher in each of the last four events.  Nathan Tyler also finished in a tie for 18th place with a 208 total.  It was his lowest tournament tally of the year.

 

SMU’s Brandon DeStefano and Auburn’s Jay Moseley shared individual medalist honors with 14-under 202 totals.

 

Sophomores Travis Esway and Trey Denton each tied for 25th place with 210 (-6) tallies, while Josh Esler also finished in the top half of the field at 213 (-3) and a tie for 42nd place.  Fellow Wildcat Nicholas Park, who competed in the event as an individual, shot a final-round 69 and tied for 18th place at 208 (-8).

 

The 54-hole John Burns Intercollegiate was contested at Leilehua Golf Club, a par 72, 6,917-yard layout.  Arizona will next be in action March 10-12 at the Las Vegas Invitational in Las Vegas, Nev.
