Golf – Cougars finish in the middle of the pack
Wesley McClain was one of four Cougars to shoot par or better Saturday in the final round of the Desert Shootout to help UH finish ninth out of the 15-school field.
The Cougars rallied with a strong last day of play, shooting the third lowest total, 283, to finish with 856 — just one stroke behind eighth place Denver.
McClain led UH, as he turned in his second consecutive three-under performance of the tournament, shooting a 69, rounding out his best totals for the season after 36- and 54-holes.
McClain finished 17th overall for the tournament, 16 shots behind tournament leader Abraham Ancer of Oklahoma.
The Sooners easily won the tournament with a score of 816; second place Iowa State trailed with 838.
UH will next compete against 18 other schools as the host of the Border Olympics on Friday in Laredo.
