The HBU Husky Invitational was a late addition to the UH’s schedule, but proved to be an opportunity for head coach Jonathan Dismuke to keep some of his less-used golfers sharp.

“We had a little more depth this year,” Dismuke said. “I was just trying to get the guys who hadn’t played each and every week a few more reps.

Sophomores Jesse Droemer and Bryn Flanagan, junior Will Dusenbury and senior Eric Adler competed for the Cougars at Quail Valley Golf Club in Missouri City.

Droemer led the way, finishing third, and shooting par or better on 42 of 54 holes. Droemer also shot two birdies.

“Obviously, Jesse separated himself and had a great week,” Dismuke said.

Flanagan also had a strong performance with a seventh-place individual finish on the strength of a second-round score of 69.

Both Droemer and Flanagan will be in the Cougars’ lineup for their next competition, the Royal Oaks Intercollegiate on Monday in Dallas.

Roman Robledo, Curtis Reed and James Ross will also compete for UH.
