SAN ANTONIO, Texas – After a strong start to the Lone Star Invitational on Monday morning, Rice University men’s golf concluded the 54-hole event in seventh place at Briggs Ranch. The Owls carded a 283-292-295—870 (+6) at the event.
Tommy Economou broke out in Tuesday’s final round with a career-best 69 to move up to a tie for 20th place. He notched a 73-74-69—216 (E) with four birdies in each round. His only bogey in the final round came on his second hole of the morning as he tallied 13 pars. The 216 also marked the junior’s lowest 54-hole total of the season, topping a 217 at the Bandon Dunes Championship earlier this month.
After shooting a pair of 70s on Monday, Kevin Reilly also tied for 20th with a 70-70-76—216 (E). Seven of the freshman’s eight birdies came in the first two rounds, including four on the opening 18 holes of the event.
Fellow rookie Alex Levy and sophomore James Lee then followed in 30th place a 220 (+4). Levy carded a 70-74-76 with five of his 10 birdies coming in the opening round. Lee posted a 71-74-75 with three birdies in each round.
Senior Landon Michelson claimed 47th place with a 72-75-75—222 (+6), including eight birdies. His opening round 70 tied a season low.
No. 20 New Mexico fended off No. 25 Baylor to claim the team title at 848 (-16), six strokes ahead of the Bears. Host UTSA came in eighth, four strokes behind the Owls.
Also competing from Conference USA, North Texas tied for fifth at 866 (+2) and Louisiana Tech placed 14th at 888 (+24).
Gavin Green (New Mexico) defeated Owen Taylor (Sacramento State) on the second hole of the sudden death playoff. Each player carded a 210 (-6) in regulation.
