Hill Shines On Final Day Of San Diego Classic

March 14, 2017

SAN DIEGO - Sophomore Trent Hill had his best round for the Mean Green, posting a 3-under par 69 during the final round of the Lamkin Grips San Diego Classic from San Diego Country Club in Southern California on Tuesday. North Texas finished in 12th place as a team, a 23-over par. 

Hill birdied on five occasions Tuesday, on No. 2, went back-to-back on No. 7 and No. 8, as well as No. 14 and No. 15. His 69 bests any individual round he has had as a member of the Mean Green. His final round lifted him into a tie for 39th place individually at 4-over for the tournament.

"The Lamkin Intercollegiate presented a competitive field with some really good scores," head coach Brad Stracke said. "Thomas [Rosenmueller] had another good round going today through eight holes, and learned a lot on the back nine, which will be beneficial in future tournaments. Trent Hill had a nice round today. I was happy with how he stepped in and performed down the stretch."

Fellow sophomore Thomas Rosenmueller came into the day alone atop the leaderboard, but a difficult front nine sent him down into a tie for 28th, shooting 7-over on the day. He did finish at 2-over par for the tournament, which was the best finish for a member of the Mean Green.

The Mean Green are back in action at the Valspar Collegiate Invitational at The Floridian Country Club in Palm City, Florida, from Sunday, March 19 through Tuesday, March 21.
