Snyman, Jackson Help NT To Second Place Finish At David Toms
Sophomores Finish In The Top 10 For The Mean Green Sunday
BATON ROUGE, Louisiana - No. 34 North Texas men's golf was led by a pair of sophomores who finished inside the top 10 Sunday at the David Toms Intercollegiate in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Sophomores Ian Snyman and Texas Tech transfer Devin Jackson helped pace the Mean Green to a second place finish at the University Club among a talented field, shooting seven-over-par as a team on Sunday, and +24 overall. Snyman finished in sixth place individually at +4, while Jackson, competing in his first tournament for North Texas, placed tied for seventh at +5. Hosts LSU took home the team title, finishing at -11 for the tournament.
Snyman wrapped up his weekend with an even-par 72 on Sunday, after a consistent start on Saturday. He birdied both 11 and 17 Sunday, helping himself to the best individual three-round performance for the Mean Green. Jackson birdied three times on Sunday in the final round, and were it not for a double bogey on 14, would have been -1 on the day.
Senior Corey Churchman placed in 19th place at +9, while sophomore Thomas Rosenmueller was a stroke behind his teammate at +10, and tied for a 21st place finish. Freshman Tobin Niblett had a very strong final round for the Mean Green as well, posting a one-over-par 73, after shooting a combined +17 through the first two rounds on Saturday.
The Mean Green continue their fall season next weekend with the prestigious Tavistock Collegiate Invitational in Orlando, Florida, at Isleworth Golf and Country Club. The three-round competition will begin on Sunday, Oct. 16 and conclude with the final round on Tuesday, Oct. 18.
