University of New Mexico golfer Gavin Green hasn’t been in New Mexico during the recent heat wave, but is still on fire on the golf course. The rising senior shot an 8-under 280 to finish second at last week’s 15th FISU World University Golf Championship in Crans-Montana, Switzerland.
Mexico’s Gerardo Ruiz won the event by two shots. UNM senior-to-be Victor Perez was tied for 50th.
… Lobo teammate Sam Saunders of Albuquerque won the New Mexico-West Texas State Amateur on Sunday at The Canyon Club. His older brother, Steve, is a previous winner, and the Sun Country Golf Association reports they are the first brothers to both snatch the title.
