Combs Wins Fourth in Tough Tourney

—By Laura Nelson on 10/10/2012 Amarillo, Texas—Oklahoma Panhandle State University golfer Trent Combs finished tied for fourth place in the competitive Ryan Palmer Invitational yesterday at the Tascosa Country Club in Amarillo.

Combs, a senior from Corona, Calif., turned in 67-71-73 for a total of 211 strokes on the par-71, 6,492-yard course, just two strokes out of first place behind Kirby Gorzell of Heartland Conference rival St. Mary's.

Golf coach Roger McKinnon said, "Trent Combs' 211 is the best 54-hole total recorded in my 12 years of coaching here. This is the kind of break out tournament I had been hoping he would have, and it was made even better since this was the best quality of field our men have seen all year." The 90 competitors represented a total of 17 schools including St. Edward's, another Heartland team. The top three teams were only one stroke apart with the Colorado School of Mines finishing first, Colorado State-Pueblo in second, and St. Mary's finishing third.

Other Aggie golfers in the tournament included Reagan Karlin, Tyler Harper, Taylor Campbell, and Seth Jones.

The men travel to Salina, Kan. for the Swede Invitational Oct. 13-15 and then close out the fall season Oct. 21-23 at the Southwestern College Tournament in Winfield, Kan. The women's fall season has been cut short due to injury and will be back in action for the spring season.
