UH wins its third straight tournament
UH came on late, erasing a 10-stroke deficit to sweep the team and individual titles at the Border Olympics in Laredo.
For the third straight round, the Cougars improved their team score and finished the final round with a combined 8-under-par 280 for a 54-hole total of 6-under-par 858 on the 7,315-yard, par-72 course at Laredo Country.
“We had a great round today. Everybody hung in there and kept chipping away at the lead. It was just great play from everyone all the way around,” said Director of Golf Jonathan Dismuke. “Our guys are getting more and more comfortable with the lead and expect to be in that position. We have a great mindset right now.”
Junior Roman Robledo recorded his third straight sub-par round with a final-round 70 and won his third straight title with a score of 7-under-par 209 to finish two strokes ahead of Baylor’s Jerry Ruiz.
