BYU earns seventh place finish at WH Tucker tournament

BYU finished seventh Tuesday at the WH Tucker Intercollegiate tournament in New Mexico.

In the Cougars’ second tournament of the season they shot seven-under-par through the final day.

Tournament host New Mexico won shooting 29-under-par with Big 12 member Texas Tech finishing just behind with a score of 26 under. Texas Tech was the only Big 12 team to finish ahead of BYU in this match.

The Cougars outpaced other Big 12 members Kansas State, just three strokes behind BYU and TCU who finished shooting one over.

Junior Zac Jones headlined the individual scoring for the Cougars. Through day one Jones tied for 19th to finish two-under par for the day. Jones would improve on day two with his best round score of the event at 68. The day two performance moved him up nine spots to tie him at tenth with a final finish of 6-under-par. This was good enough for the fourth best Big 12 individual performance.

Jones wasn’t the only one improving from day one to two. The BYU team as a whole hit 286 which was good enough to move them from eighth at the end of day one, to seventh for the tournament.

While 286 wasn’t BYU’s best round of the event it was good enough to outpace TCU who dropped three spots following a round three score of 295.

The conference competition intensifies for BYU as they look to their first ever Big 12 Match Play tournament starting Oct. 9.
