Spartans Ninth At Bandon Dunes Championship

BANDON, Ore. -- San Jose State men's golf concluded the Bandon Dunes Championship with an eighteen-over par 302 on March 18 and finished in ninth place out of 15 teams.


The Spartans shot 295-292-302-889 (+37) as a team for the tournament on the 6,743-yard par 71 Bandon Trails Course and finished 32 strokes behind tournament champion Washington.

 

"This tournament was a tougher for our team than it should have been," said San Jose State head coach John Kennaday. "Effort on the guys' part is not to blame, they played with heart this weekend."


San Jose State Seniors Matthew Hovan and Jay Myers each shot 75 on Sunday and finished at 221 (+8) for the tournament. They were two of five players in a tie for 21st place.


Christopher Lang also shot a 75 on Sunday and finished the tournament in a tie for 74th place at +25.


Justin Estrada had a final-round 77 and finished in a tie for 30th totaling a 223 (+10) while Daniel Semmler's 80 put him in a tie for 52nd at 229 (+16).


Washington's Chris Williams is the individual tournament champion shooting 71-67-66-204 (-9) for a six-shot victory.

 

"Now our team gets to see what they're made of with two more tournaments coming up very shortly," Kennaday added.


The Spartans will tee it up next at the Oregon Duck Invitational beginning March 26 in Eugene, Ore.
