The UH Cougars’ golf program opened up the 2012 portion of their fall schedule by placing third at the Invitational at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in Charleston, S.C.

“This is one of the hardest courses I have ever set foot on,” said head coach Jonathan Dismuke in a statement. “We didn’t handle the conditions as well as we would have liked.”

Heading into day three of the tournament in second, the Cougars battled heavy winds in excess of 30 mph, ulimtately allowing UT Arlington to pass up UH on the final day.

“With winds like that, no course plays easy, much less one like Kiawah Island,” Dismuke said in a statement. “We just have to chalk it up and regroup and have a good week of practice.”

The Cougars were led by junior Curtis Reed, who after one round finished ahead of all competition with a first round 71. Reed finished the tournament tied for fifteenth overall at 13-above-par.

Sophomore teammate Roman Robledo finished one stroke back of Reed at 14-above-par and concluded the invitational tied for eighteenth.

UH’s next action will come in just under two weeks in Birmingham, Ala. at the Shoal Creek Invitational, Sept. 24 to 25.
