BYU men’s golf competed in the Alister MacKenzie Invitational at the Meadow Club in Fairfax, California on Tuesday. The team finished in tenth following a disappointing final round.

“Our expectations for this tournament was to win and when you finish in tenth place, it’s a disappointment,” BYU head coach Bruce Brockbank said. “We started the event really well. The first round was exceptional, but we couldn’t handle the speed of the greens on the last two very well. I really like this group and know they will bounce back.”

Patrick Fishburn moved from third place into a tie for sixth following an even score on the final round to shoot a total of 203 (-10). Spencer Dunaway and Rhett Rasmussen also placed in the top 50 for the tournament.

WCC foes Saint Mary’s and Pepperdine ended the tournament in third (-24) and fifth (-23) places, respectfully. Arizona State blew out the competition by shooting an incredible 821 (-31).

Look for the Cougars to bounce back at the Pacific Invitational on Oct. 27-29. The tournament will be at the Stockton Country and Golf Club in Stockton, California.
