Golf: Short-Handed Ragin' Cajuns Finish 11th in Vero Beach
Louisiana will wrap up fall portion of schedule beginning Monday in Hawaii
VERO BEACH, Fla. – This time, it was Peter Hinnant's day to shine for the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns Golf team.
One day after teammate Charlie Flynn tied his career low round and 36-hole total, Hinnant carded a 5-under-par 67 while setting a career-low, 54-hole total in the process and leading Louisiana to an 11th-place finish at the Quail Valley Intercollegiate on Monday at Quail Valley Golf Club.
Playing one man down due to injury, Louisiana posted a team score of 1-under-par 287 in the final round to finish at 855 overall and one stroke behind Big 10 member Rutgers in the 16-team field. No. 11-ranked Kansas – the first-day leader – claimed the team title at 829 overall with No. 31 Kent State finishing second (836) followed by No. 28-ranked and host Michigan State (841), Toledo (842), Memphis (843) and 24th-ranked Northwestern (843).
Hinnant, who carded rounds of 70 and 69 during Sunday's opening day, recorded four birdies and a pair of eagles in the final round to record his low round of the season and finish in a tie for fourth place with a 54-hole total of 10-under-206 – four strokes better than his previous best (210, Warrior Princeville Makai Invitational, Oct. 28-30, 2018). Hinnant posted a 2-under 34 on the back nine which was aided by an eagle at the par-5, 530-yard No. 14 before adding a second eagle in the round at the par-5, 622-yard No. 3 and going 3-under 33 on the front.
Flynn, who posted a 6-under-par 66 in Sunday's opening round, recorded a 2-over-par 74 in the final round to finish tied for 19th overall at 5-under 211. Freshman Eli Ortego recorded a final round score of 1-under 71 for the Ragin' Cajuns while Hudson Dubinski posted a 3-over 75.
Kent State's Chris Vandette fired a 5-under 67 in the final round to overtake a four-man logjam and claim medalist honors. Vandette finished at 14-under 202 for the 54-hole event with Kansas' tandem of Harry Hillier and Callum Bruce finishing three strokes back at 205.
Louisiana will close out the fall portion of its 2021-22 schedule beginning on Monday (Oct. 25) when it competes in the Hoakalei Country Club Invitational in 'Ewa Beach, Hawaii. The two-day, 54-hole event, which features 16 teams including Sun Belt schools Texas State and ULM, will start at 12:30 p.m. CT, with live results available at GolfStat.com.
