Nevada shoots lowest team round of the day
April 20, 2014
EL MACERO, Calif. – The Nevada men’s golf team fired the lowest team round and finished fourth after the final day of the El Macero Classic, co-hosted by UC Davis and Nevada.
Nevada bounced back after a bad second round and shot an even-par 288, and finished the tournament with a 21-over 885. This is the sixth time this season that Nevada has finished in the top-5.
Nevada also had four players competing individually. Sophomore Kit Carson finished tied for 27th with a 10-over 226. Junior Gustavo Chuang tied for 41st, freshman Zach Berhost tied for 65th, and Junior Derek Ream finished in 68th.
“The guys did a great job of bouncing back after our bad round on Saturday,” said head coach Jacob Wilner. “To have the low round of the day is a great accomplishment.”
UC Davis won the tournament with an eight-under 856. UC Davis’ matt Hansen won the individual tournament with a six-under 210.
This was Nevada’s last tournament before the Mountain West Championship starting on Friday.
