HARTFORD, Wis. – The Utah men's golf team concluded play at the Marquette Intercollegiate at Erin Hills on Tuesday, finishing in seventh place the par 72, 7869-yard Erin Hills Golf Course in Hartford, Wis.
Utah put together a final round of 4-over par (292) to close out the event with a combined score of 28-over par (292-308-292=892).
“This was not a good tournament for our team,” said head coach Garrett Clegg. “Our guys really struggled throughout the entire event and we did not perform the way we would have liked to. Jordan was our top finisher in the event and he did a nice job this week to lead us. We have a couple weeks of practice to regroup and get ready for our next event in early November to close out the fall schedule.”
Junior Jordan Costello carded his best round of the event on Tuesday to finish the tournament in a tie for 25th place to lead the Utes. Costello was steady all day after notching 12 pars during the final round to go on to shoot even par (72) in the final round and have a combined score of 5-over par (221).
Sophomore Blake Tomlinson also notched even par (72) in the final round, which was his best round of the event, to finish in a tie for 36th place at 8-over par (224). Sophomore Tristan Mandur finished the event tied for 39th place with a score of 9-over par (225) after recording a final round of 2-over par (74).
Junior Mitchell Schow finished the event in 53rd place, following a final round of 2-over par (74) to have a combined score of 12-over par (228). Rounding out Utah's five-man team in Wisconsin, senior Kyler Dunkle placed in a tie for 56that 14-over par (230) after shooting 4-over par (76) on Tuesday.
