Pacific Closes Out Invitational In A Tie For Sixth

Nov 2, 2013

Closing out action at the 2013 SCVB Pacific Invitational, the Pacific golf team tallied a -2, 282, in round three to finish at +1 overall. The Tigers +1 put them in a tie for sixth place in the standings alongside of Denver and Charlotte. The tournament finish marked the end of the fall schedule for the Tigers as they are off until Jan. 27 when they head to Tucson, Ariz. to take part in the Arizona Intercollegiate.

Finishing at the top of the standings was BYU which shot a three-round total of -25 to take home a wire-to-wire win at Stockton Country Club. The Cougars won for the second time at the Invitational after taking the inaugural tournament championship in 2006. Individually, BYU's Joe Parkinson captured the Invitational title at -13 after shooting a one-under, 70 on day two. The individual crown marked the second-straight season the Cougars claimed the win in Stockton after Devon Purser won the 2012 title.

Parkinson's domination of the course over the first two days was more than enough to hold off late challenges by a handful of golfers. No challenge proved bigger than Long Beach State's Kevin Lee who carded a tournament-best -9, 62 on the final day of play to move from 28th overall into a tie for second place.

For the Tigers, sophomore Austin Weatherholt posted Pacific's best round of the day as the second-year golfer his second-straight round in the 60's after posting a -3, 68 on Saturday afternoon. Weatherholt ended his tournament at even par with a 213 three-round total. Junior Byron Meth grabbed the top spot for the Tigers for the tournament with a -1, 212 after posting a -1, 70 in round three.
