Golf: Cajuns Golf Finishes Border Olympics On Strong Note
Jeff Schneider, Associate Director of Athletics Communications
LAREDO, Texas – The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns golf team carded a final round score of 8-under par (280) on Saturday to finish the Border Olympics in a tie for 13th with an overall score of 8-over (872) at the par 72, 7,375-yard Laredo Country Club. The final round was the lowest round recorded by the Cajuns this season.
Campbell used a final round score of 14-under (274) to pass up Arkansas State for the team title with a three-round score of 21-under (843). WKU's Billy Tom Sargent claimed individual medalist honors with a 54-hole score of 12-under (204).
"Certainly not where we want to finish any tournament as a team. We've had inconsistent play this week with too large of a margin between our worst and our best. That's what you can get when you have an inexperienced group. It's time for this group to start expecting more out of themselves after posting the low round of the season today.
Very proud of the efforts of Jack and Cole in the final round. For the second straight tournament Jack posted a 68 in his final round and then Cole had his first round in the 60s. I was glad to see both of them step up today and finish strong."
Tolson Equals Career Low Round
Sophomore Jack Tolson equaled his career low round with a 68 (-4) in the final round of the Border Olympics. Tolson had just one blemish on his card with five birdies while playing his final nine holes of the day mistake free. Tolson moved up 22 spots in the final round to finish in a tie for 21st at 2-under par, his fourth career top 25 finish and second straight this season.
Kendrick Cards First Round In 60s
Freshman Cole Kendrick was the biggest mover on the day climbing 27 spots up the leaderboard to finish in a tie for 56th at 4-over par after notching a round of 69 (-3) on Saturday. Kendrick had five birdies in the round and was blemish-free in his last 11 holes of the day to card his first career round in the 60s.
Louisiana returns to action March 19-20 at the Lone Star Invitational hosted at the Briggs Ranch Golf Course in San Antonio, Texas.
