SOUTH BEND, Ill. – Javier Barcos ended the day with three straight birdies to finish at 1-under and earn a share of 21st while the University of Utah men’s golf team placed 13th on the final day of the Fighting Irish Classic, which took place on Monday at the Warren Golf Course.

“Javi had a really good finish, birdieing his final three holes,” said coach Garrett Clegg. “We had some good moments, but overall, this was not close to how we expect to compete. We have a lot of lessons to learn and a lot of growth has to happen this year. We’re excited for what’s ahead and will work to make sure we are better at the Husky Invitational.”
Barcos’ 69 was the Utes’ lowest third round score and he reached that number despite logging three early bogeys. Over his final 12 holes, however, the junior from Estella, Spain shot 3-under, including birdies on the seventh, eighth and ninth holes to close out his day. This strong finish resulted in Barcos jumping up 13 spots and sharing 21st with four other competitors.
