Cats struggle during final round

               

TUCSON, Ariz. ?- The University of Arizona men’s golf team shot a 31-over 319 Tuesday and finished in 15th place at the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational in Orlando, Fla.

 

Arizona’s 319 tally gave the team a 914 total after 54 holes, which placed the team 15th in the 18-team field.  UA’s 50-over tally for the tournament was 38 strokes behind tournament-winner Texas.  Florida (888), Texas A&M (890), Oklahoma State (892) and Georgia (893) rounded out the top five places.

 

High winds, a chilly 51 degrees and difficult final-round pin placements affected the entire field.  No team finished under par during Tuesday’s round, while three of the five teams in the field carded double-digit rounds over par.

 

Junior Creighton Honeck was Arizona’s top golfer, finishing with a 10-over 226 total and a tie for 33rd place.  Teammate Trey Denton tied for 35th place at 11-over 227.  Georgia’s Brian Harman captured individual medalist honors with an even-par 216 total.

 

Senior Josh Esler tied for 53rd place at 14-over 230, while junior Travis Esway finished in 84th place at 241 (+25).  Freshman Pedro Oriol, who withdrew during the first round, carded a final-round 78, Arizona’s low round of the day.

 

The Isleworth Collegiate Invitational was contested at Isleworth Country Club, a par 72, 7,544-yard layout.  The event was hosted by the University of Central Florida.  Arizona will next be in action, Oct. 29-31, at the Hooters Collegiate Match Play Championship in Fort Worth, Texas.
