BYU men’s golf struggled at the Pacific Invitational in Stockton, California as it took 11th place in its last fall tournament of the year.

The Cougars have struggled throughout the fall season. They have finished in the top 10 only once in their five tournaments so far this year. The team is still a young team with three freshman and three sophomores. They lack veteran experience but they will continue to gain that as the season goes on. They have the potential to be a very good team if they put in the hard work during their break.

Sophomore Patrick Fishburn continues to be a bright spot for the team regardless of the Cougars’ struggles. Fishburn finished tied eighth at the Pacific Invitational. He has had some solid finishes this season with two top ten finishes. His best finish was third at the Nick Watney Invitational.

Kaimakani Ruiz and CJ Lee played well for the Cougars in Stockton. Ruiz tied for 32nd and Lee tied for 36th. Sacramento State won the tournament with a score of seven-over par.

The Pacific Invitational was the last fall tournament for the Cougars this year. They will continue their tournament play on Jan. 29-30 at the Arizona Intercollegiate.
