Cougar golf hits the top 10
Cougar Sports Services
The Cougars didnit raze Arizona but they did raise a little hell at the Sun Devilsi own ASU Invitational on Saturday. After suffering through a couple of lackluster performances at its most recent tournaments, the UH golf team caught fire in the final round to vault into a tie for 10th place out of 19 teams.
Led by senior Brett Callasi 7-under-par 65, the Cougars finished tied with Brigham Young at 15-under-par 849, including a 10-under-par 278 in the final round. Host school Arizona State won the team title. Of the 19 teams, only California-Los Angeles finished above par (872).
Callas tied with ASUis Chez Reavie and Nevada-Las Vegasi Ryan Keeney for the best score Saturday. He finished in a six-way tie for 11th place and became just the 11th player in Cougar history to shoot a 65 or better. Callasi previous career best was a 67.
Senior John Wine wasnit that far off the pace. After leading the Cougars at the U.S. Collegiate Championships, Wine finished just one stroke behind Callas with a 7-under-par 209. His final round 67 was good enough to put him in a tie for 17th place.
Sophomore Daniel Angenscheidt finished tied for 65th place with a 2-over-par 218; Denton Walker was tied for 78th place with a 4-over-par 220; and freshman Kevin Newman was tied for 92nd at 7-over-par 223.
The Cougars will be off until the Conference USA Championships on April 21 in Tampa, Fla.
