STANFORD, Calif. -- Competing in the three-day Stanford-hosted tournament The Goodwin, the Fresno State men's golf team recorded its lowest score of the 2013-14 season at 859 (289-286-284) to clench a top-ten finish.
Among a field of 18 teams, the Bulldogs fired 19-over par to finish in 9th place above No. 22 UNLV, No. 33 San Diego State, and No. 43 TCU.
"I am very ahppy with the way we played," head coach Chad Spencer said. "It is good to see our guys peeking at the right time in the season as we prepare for the Mountain West Championship."
Senior Nate Jessup maintained his lead among the Bulldogs and finished the tournament in a tie for 24th place. Jessup made 11 birdies and one eagle to record two-over par, 212 (68-72-72).
Senior Keenan Nelson trailed Jessup by one stroke to finish the tournament in a tie for 28th place. Nelson made 13 birdies to card three-over par, 213 (73-69-71).
Freshman Michael Pugh proved his skill among the 93-player field after posting his best score of the season. Pugh finished in a tie for 53rd place at eight-over par, 218 (77-71-70).
"Michael had a great week as he continues to learn he will only get better," Spencer said.
