Snyman With Best Freshman Start To Season Since 1999
Mean Green Finish Fourth In Memphis
MEMPHIS - It was a quite a start to his collegiate career as true freshman Ian Snyman finished tied for fifth place at the Memphis Intercollegiate at two-under par, and the Mean Green climbed the leaderboard to finish in fourth place.
Snyman's fifth-place finish is the best by a true freshman playing in their first collegiate tournament since Freddy Espericueta finished in third place in his first tourney in 1999.
Synman had four birdies on the day as he shot a one-over par 73. Fellow freshman Thomas Rosenmueller wasn't far behind as he shot an even-par round of 72 and finished tied for 12th place. It's the first top-25 finish by two freshman in their first tournament at North Texas since 1999.
Sophomore Michael Cotton narrowly missed out on a top-25 finish after shooting his best score of the tournament with a 72. Cotton ended tied for 28th place. Cory Churchman shot a third-round of 80 and slipped into a tie for 51st place. Colin Pearson shot a five-over par 77 and was tied for 63rd place while Alejandro Villasana, playing as an individual, posted a 77 and was tied for 59th place.
The Mean Green shot a six-over 294 on the day and inched their way past UALR and MTSU into fourth. Memphis held onto win the overall team championship.
The Mean Green is back in action September 27-28 at the Windon Memorial Classic.
