Growing pains continue for golf
UH had a spring break to forget.
The Cougars finished the inaugural Bulldog Classic with a ninth-place finish last week at Squire Creek Country Club in Choudrant, La.
UH recorded a score of 311 in Tuesday’s final round to end at 928 on the 7,105-yard, par-72 course. Southeastern Louisiana won the tournament with a score of 800, with Ole Miss (801), host Louisiana Tech (900), Oklahoma (903) and New Orleans (906) rounding out the top five.
Southeastern Louisiana’s Cedric Scott finished at 4-under par 212 to capture medalist honors.
Junior Clark Mitzner was the Cougars’ top performer, shooting 75 in the final round to tie for 11th place at 225.
Still, first-year UH head coach Jonathan Dismuke did not see much to be pleased about.
“We really struggled in every aspect, and we are not getting off to good starts,” he said in a release. “We have to get a lot better, and there is plenty of room for improvement.”
