TCU Closes Out Nike Collegiate Invitational
Oct. 4, 2016
FORT WORTH -- On a windy day at Colonial Country Club, the TCU men's golf team closed out the Nike Golf Collegiate Invitational with a final round 297 to finish in a tie for 13th place in the very strong field.
Vanderbilt won the team championship by one stroke over Florida. Max McNealy of Stanford, the world's No. 1 amateur, shot a final-round 68 to finish the tournament at 8-under-par and win the individual title by two strokes.
Round of the Day
The sophomore's 2-over 72 was impressive in windy conditions in which only six golfers posted round under par on Tuesday.
- Freshman Jeong Weon Ko had the Frogs second best round of the day as he carded a 3-over 73. Ko's 73 was one stroke off his season low and a nice bounce-back round after shooting an 83 on Monday.
- TCU was hosting the Nike Golf Collegiate Invitational for the second time. The Frogs hosted the inaugural event in 2014 at Colonial Country Club, while the second annual event was played at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club in Portland, Ore., in 2015.
- The 2016 Nike Golf Collegiate Invitational field featured seven of the nation's top 10 teams and three of the world's top five amateurs.
