Snyman Closes Strongly At Tavistock, Shoots 4-Under 68

Oct. 24, 2017

WINDERMERE, Florida - Junior Ian Snyman saved his best for last during the final round of the Tavistock Collegiate Invitational from the Isleworth Country Club Sunday after firing a 4-under 68 to finish the event in a tie for 11th at 2-under. The Mean Green climbed three spots to 14th place and finished at 21-over par following their best round of the tournament, a 3-under 285.

"The guys had a nice comeback today," head coach Brad Stracke said. "Ian and Thomas [Rosenmueller] had a fabulous finish today. Andrew [Hudson] was solid all three days. We played against some of the best teams in the country this week and I believe you learn a lot more about yourself playing better competition than playing weak opponents. We will grow from this week and be stronger in the spring. Playing the Tavistock Collegiate Invitational is a great expeirence for our team."

Snyman eagled the seventh hole and birdied on five occasions, on the first, second, 12th, 14th and and 16th holes, respectively. He also posted pars on nine holes during his best round of the tournament. Snyman shot up 18 spots on the leaderboard to close in a tie for 11th.

Rosenmueller, like Snyman, had his best day of the tournament Tuesday in the final round. The Munich, Germany, native fired a 2-under 70 Tuesday to climb to 6-over for the event. Rosenmueller birdied four times, on one, three, seven and 10.

Hudson shot a two-over 74 for the second straight day to finish at 4-over for the tournament. Hudson birdied twice, while parring 13 holes Tuesday to conclude his strong fall season.

The Mean Green will be back in action to open their spring season at the All-American Intercollegiate in Humble, Texas, with a three-day event from Feb. 16-18.
