Sophomore Brad McIntosh led the UH men's golf team to an eighth-place tie with Arizona in the Las Vegas Invitational, which concluded Sunday.

McIntosh finished tied for fifth in the individual standings after shooting a two-under-par 70 in the final round. He is the reigning Conference USA Player of the Year.

After the first round of play on Friday, the Cougars found themselves in 10th place despite solid play across the board.

The Cougars roared back Saturday with a very strong showing. Each of the UH golfers shot 73 or better as the Cougars moved up three places in the team standings
to seventh.

Sophomore Scott Ferguson led the charge in Sunday's final round with a five-under-par 67.

Ferguson's round ties a gem shot by teammate Chris Cureton earlier this year as the low card of the season for the Cougars. Ferguson finished 19th in the individual
standings. The Cougars' three-day total was 877.

Other Cougars in action on Sunday were juniors Brett Callas with a 221 (tied for 36th) and Simon Robinson with a 227 (tied for 54th) and freshman Daniel
Angenscheidt with a 230 (tied for 61st).

Georgia Tech captured the team title with a score of 844.

Troy Matteson of Georgia Tech and Camilo Villegas of Florida tied for the individual championship at 208.

On Tuesday, the Cougar golfers wrapped up a 12th-place showing at the Cleveland Golf Classic in Westlake Village, Calif.

Although the Cougars improved their scoring in each round finishing with a team total of 898 it wasn't enough to make any real headway among the strong
16-team field.

Callas posted a three-day total of 221 to lead the Cougars and tied for 20th in the individual standings.

Callas has become a leader on the team in his junior season after seeing only sporadic action his first two years at Houston.

Robinson finished in a tie for 30th with a score of 223 after shooting a 72 Tuesday.

Other Cougars in action were McIntosh with a 225 (tied for 33rd), John Wine with a 236 (tied for 73rd) and Scott Ferguson with a 238 (tied for 75th).

Host Southern California's "A" Team captured the team championship by three strokes over Washington and Oregon, which tied for second place.

Washington's Brock Mackenzie claimed the individual championship with a five-under-par 208 after shooting 68-69 in his final two rounds.

Next on the schedule for the Cougar linksters is a trip to Austin to compete in the Morris Williams Intercollegiate on March 25.
