CSUSM Junior Braeden Koran tied the men’s team for fourth place with a 2-over 218 and led the Cougars into the final round with a 1-under 71.
“I think we did a pretty good job overall. The greens were very tough because we haven’t played at that course very much. I am proud of the guys for fighting the whole tournament.”
Freshman Ryan Bisharat tied 45th place with a 13-over 229. Freshman Matt Fry finished with 22-over 238, placing him in the 78th spot. Sophomore Jake Williams finished with a 17-over 233, causing him to tie for 61st place. Junior Chris Tuulik tied for eighth place and finished with a 3-over 219.
