MILTON, Ga. – One of the most decorated golfers in school history had his career at North Texas come to an end at the final round of the 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championship. Rodolfo Cazabuon shot an even-par 70 to finish in a tie for 32nd place as his magical senior season and collegiate career came to a close.
Cazaubon played nearly mistake free golf in the third round, posting one birdie and only bogey to go along with 16 pars. Cazaubon, who was playing for the national title as an individual, played against the nation’s best and was even-par for the tournament with a score of 210. He was one of only 37 golfers in the field of 156 to finish at even-par or better.
The senior rewrote the record books this season, winning three individual titles this season which is the most in the modern era in school history dating back to 1975.
In addition he was named to the all-conference team for the fourth time, becoming just the second player in school history to be a four-time all-conference selection.
Along the way he had the most top-10 finishes in a decade at North Texas this year. Cazaubon has seven top-10 finishes, the most since 2002-03. Cazaubon has 14 top-10 finishes for his career and eight top-five finishes in his career.
He was named the 2010 Sun Belt Freshman of the Year, the first time in the program’s storied history that has happened.
Cazaubon helped lead North Texas to back-to-back conference titles for the first time since 1974-75 and to the NCAA Tournament in three straight seasons, the first time since in 39 years the Mean Green has made three straight NCAA Appearances.
