Lobo men’s golf finishes eighth in Dallas

DALLAS  — The University of New Mexico men’s golf team finished its calendar year tied for eighth among 13 teams competing at the Royal Oaks Intercollegiate. The Lobos finished the tournament with a 14-over 298 in round three for a 7-over 859 total on Tuesday.

Despite the team’s rocky second day, redshirt senior Andre Garcia shined during the event, posting a 3-under 68 in the final round for a 7-under 206 three-round total. Garcia finished second in individual scoring only behind host Baylor’s Cooper Dossey, who finished with an 11-under 202 total.

Juniors Augustin Holé and Sean Carlon rounded out UNM’s top three, with Holé scoring a 6-over 77 in round three for a 1-over 214 total. Carlon posted a 5-over 76 in the third round for a 3-over 216 total. The pair of juniors were followed by redshirt freshman Ross Sinclair, who scored a 6-over 77 in round three for a 14-over total, and freshman Galven Green, who scored a 9-over 80 in round three for an 18-over 231 total.

Today was a struggle. Andre played really well and shot a great round in some pretty windy conditions. It was a really nice way for him to finish a good semester,” said head coach Glen Millican. “As a team, we have to get more comfortable with being uncomfortable. We have room for improvement and have a lot of time to get better during the offseason.”

Baylor continued its great play into the final round, winning the event with a 3-under 284 in round three and a commanding 25-under 827 total. Arkansas held its spot from the previous day as well, posting a 3-over 287 in the final round for a 6-under 846 total and a second-place finish. Third-place Minnesota followed with a 3-over 287 to close the tournament, finishing with a 4-under 848.

UNM returns to action at the Arizona Intercollegiate in Tucson on Jan. 29-30.
