HUMBLE, Texas – Senior Jack Tolson recorded four of his five birdies during a five-hole stretch on the back nine and posted his third career top-10 finish as he led the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns Golf team to a fourth-place finish at the 2020 All-American Intercollegiate on Tuesday at the Golf Club of Houston.
Louisiana, which carded a team score of 2-under-par 862 for the second straight event, posted a final round score of 2-under-286 to finish two strokes ahead of No. 32-ranked Houston (864) and UTSA (864) with No. 30-ranked South Carolina six strokes back at 868.
Tolson, who finished at 4-under 68 in the final round and 4-under 212 for the 54-hole event, recorded a birdie for Louisiana at No. 4 before making the turn and bogeying the par-4, 350-yard No. 10. The senior then followed up with three straight birdies for the Ragin' Cajuns and added his fifth two holes later to eventually record his first top-10 finish since claiming medalist honors at the 2018 Lake Charles Invitational.
Charlie Flynn and Peter Hinnant each finished at 1-over-217 for Louisiana with Flynn posting an even-par 72 in the final round with Hinnant carding a 1-over 73. Bjorn Gudjonsson fired a 1-over 73 in the final round to finish at 6-over 222 for the Ragin' Cajuns with Hudson Dubinski posting a 2-over 74 and finishing at 223.
Sam Houston State claimed team medalist honors with a wire-to-wire finish, posting a 10-under 276 for the round to finish at 840 for the tournament. Wake Forest, ranked No. 8 in the GolfStat National rankings, was four shots back at 844 with tournament co-host Rice (852) finishing third.
Louisiana, Houston and UTSA rounded out the top-5 in the 13-team field with South Carolina, Louisiana Tech (871), ULM (874) and Lamar (879) finishing seventh through 10th.
Sam Houston State's Jack Randle took home medalist honors after shooting a 6-under 66 to finish at 205 and three strokes ahead of teammate Luis Carrera.
