FRESNO, Calif. -
The Wyoming Cowboy golf team shot 299 (+11) on Tuesday at the Fresno State/Lexus Golf Classic and finished the 54-hole event with a total of 914 (+50).
The Cowboys finished last in the field of 20 teams. UW shot 306 (+18) and 309 (+21) on Monday.
The San Diego State Aztecs won the team crown with a three-round mark of 841 (-23). Cal and Texas tied for second place at 844 (-20).
"We were certainly better today," said Cowboy head coach Joe Jensen. "It's going to take some rounds to put it all together, but we have to start each spring somewhere. Now we just have to get a little better at our next tournament.
"I was pleased to see a lot of good shots from the guys and our attitudes are good. We just need to eliminate the fundamental mistakes."
Henzlik and Zaremba tied for the best event finish on the team at 229 (+13).
San Diego State's Matt Hoffenberg and Texas' Charlie Holland tied for the individual title out of 104 golfers at 207 (-9). Holland won the sudden death playoff on the third hole.
The event was held at Fort Washington Country Club, which measures 6,729 yards, par 72.
Wyoming's next tournament will be the Border Olympics, hosted by the University of Houston, March 14-15 in Laredo, Texas.
