DENTON, Texas-It took a birdie on a par five on the fourth playoff hole, but Devin Carrey opened the 2007-08 golf season with a victory at the Mean Green Invitational. 

 

After shooting a two-under par 70 in the opening round, Carrey bettered his score by a stroke to shoot a 69 and force a playoff. 

 

Carrey tied Justin Perry of Western Kentucky and Cole Howard of North Texas at five under par. 

 

UL’s medalist helped the Cajuns to a tie for third place as a team with Texas State.  As a team, the Cajuns shot three-under par as a team, just two strokes behind tournament winner Western Kentucky and one stroke behind tournament host North Texas.

 

Individually, all six Cajuns’ golfers players finished in the top-25. 

 

Following Carrey’s five under par, Morgan Landry finished in tie for fourth place.  Landry carded his second consecutive round of one-under par to finish the tournament with a score of 142. 

 

Kyle Pritchard shot a one over par 73 to finish in a tie for 19th.  Pritchard finished one stroke ahead of Michael Smith, Dustin Petit and BC Thibeaux.  The trio finished in a tie for 24th.  Smith and Petit carded rounds of 73 and 74 respectively, while Thibeaux rebounded from an opening round 75 with a even par round of 72.

 

The Ragin’ Cajuns return to action on Monday, Sept. 24 as they head to Newport, R.I. for the Adams Cup.
