Men’s Golf: Brenchley finishes fifth at first collegiate tournament
Freshman Max Brenchley and junior Carson Lundell placed in the top 10 for BYU Men’s Golf at the La Purisima College Invite Oct. 19-20 in Lompoc, California.
Brenchley was the Cougars’ top finisher and tied for fifth overall is his first college tournament. He shot a 74 (+2) in the first round and a 73 (+1) in the second round. He continued to improve throughout the tournament, shooting a 71 (-1) during the final round.
“Max played impressive golf this week,” BYU head coach Bruce Brockbank said. “It is nice to see. This kid has been working and he is such a competitor. It was good to see him step up and help the team.”
Lundell also finished in the top 10, tied for ninth place. His best round was the second, when he finished with a 71 (-1). Lundell and sophomore David Timmins both shot an even 72 in the final round, with Timmins finishing in 14th.
Spencer Dunaway and Brock Stanger rounded out the Cougar competitors, finishing in 25th and 31st place, respectively. Dunaway joined Lundell and Timmins with a 72 in the final round.
“It was a better team score today,” Brockbank said. “It was a step in the right direction but we are still far off from what we are hoping for.”
The tournament was held at the La Purisima Golf Course, where five other West Coast Conference teams participated. San Diego finished first with a total team score of 861 (-3). BYU ended in fifth place, scoring 888 (+24).
BYU plays in its final tournament of the fall on Nov. 5-6 at the Rustic Collegiate Classic in Moorpark, California.
