Texas Tech Golf Claims UTSA/Oak Hills Invitational

The UTSA/Oak Hills Invitational has been good to the Texas Tech Red Raider Golf team. The Red Raiders rallied in the final round to shoot a 2-under 282 team round to move up three spots to claim the championship for the fourth consecutive year and the sixth time since 2001.

Tech Golf coach Greg Sands said, “I couldn’t be more proud of the way the guys fought today. It was a lot of fun to watch.  Things went back and forth on the back nine and ultimately it took contributions from every single guy for us to win.  It was really good to see them compete and we are just thrilled to win this tournament for the fourth consecutive year.”

 

Texas Tech’s final round push was led by Clement Sordet who shot a 66 for the lowest score of the round in the two-day tournament. Fin Ewing helped with the rally in the come-from-behind win as he continued his strong play with a strong final round.  Ewing chipped in a final round score of 70 to finish the tournament in fourth place at even par, 213.

Ewing climbed all the way from 26th after the first round into a tie for ninth placed heading into today’s final round.  His fourth place finish is the highest of his career, surpassing a fifth place standing at the 2010 NCAA South Central Regional in College Station.

Texas Tech returns to the links on Saturday, Feb. 25, at the Desert Invitational in Palm Springs, Calif.
