UTSA’s men’s golf team has failed to match the exploits of the women’s team as they could only manage 11th place in the Conference USA Golf Championships from Oak Tree Country Club which wrapped up on Tuesday.
The Roadrunners finished the tournament with 898 with the leader of the side being Brett Hogan who managed a 10-overpar 220 over the three rounds.
There was hope that Hogan could lift UTSA in to the top ten after he recorded a 70 in Monday’s second round, after a shattering opening round 76 but Hogan could only manage a 74 in the final round on Tuesday, still the best of the Roadrunners, but not enough to match UNT who finished four strokes ahead.
Ryan Werre was three strokes behind Hogan, in a tie for 32nd, with 223 (+13) after he carded a disappointing 77 on the final round after some fair numbers in the opening rounds, carding 72 and 74 in a sliding week.
Werre’s collegiate career came to an end with the 77 but there was one bright spark for Werre as he managed an eagle on the fourth to be in with a shout of a solid score in the early going.
The remaining three Roadrunners all carded final round 76s with JJ Lindsey likely the most disappointed as his second round 71 fell away by five but still saw an impressive recovery from a horrible opening round of 80.
Garrison Lackey just snuck in to the top 50 with an improvement over the last two days, after an opening round of 79, Lackey carded a 75 and 76 to finish in a tie for 49th with 230.
Bryce Alley will be the most disappointed of the Roadrunners, having come in as the highest rated of the team, he rounded out the scoring, being put on the back foot from the opening round where he carded a poor 82, Alley recovered for 74 and 76 but the hole was too big as he finished in a tie for 55th with 232.
