Lubbock, Texas—Facing the longest course they’ve seen all season, the Panhandle State men’s golf team posted their lowest team round (321) and had two players mark season lows at the Arbor Hotels Classic tournament hosted by Lubbock Christian University March 5-6.

The Rawls Course at Texas Tech is ranked as the No. 2 course in Texas and the No. 3 campus course by Golf Week magazine. Placed at an elevation of 3,200 feet above sea level, the course boasts a total yardage of over 7,200 from the championship tees and holds a par of 72, including a par-five hole on 17 that spans 594 yards.

The Aggie men competed in a field of 15 teams and 78 golfers and, despite their final placings, put in a strong team performance, showing individual improvement since their last tournament of the fall in late October. As a team, the Aggies finished 15th overall among a highly competitive group of players.

Freshman Joshua Rouse turned in the lowest combined score for Panhandle, placing 73 with round scores of 86, 83, 80. Sergi Teller (JR) and Chandler Evans (FR) each carded personal season-bests in Monday’s second round where the team also marked their lowest team score of the season (321). Teller dropped nine strokes between rounds one and two, to mark a 76 for the team low of the tournament; he finished with an overall score of 251 to place 74 individually. Evans broke a 79 in round two after shooting 86 in the opening round; he placed 75 overall with a score of 87 in Tuesday’s round three. Junior Lucas Heathington shot consistent 87s in both rounds on Monday, and marked a 91 on Tuesday to finish 77 for the tournament. Karsten Harrison, the third freshman on the Aggie team, completed the 54-hole contest with scores of 98, 83 and 91 to place 78; he notched his second-lowest score of the year in the second round.

Indian Hills Community College took the team title for the tournament, scoring seven over par with combined round scores of 298, 280, 293. Ricky Sanders of Indian Hills earned the individual title marking 70, 65, 70 to go 11 under par over the three-round meet.

With a few weeks off to prepare for their final tournaments of the regular season, the Aggie men will continue to work on improving their games. Panhandle State men’s golf competes in the Kansas Wesleyan Spring Invitational on March 26-27 and in the South Central Kansas Spring Invitational in Winfield April 2-3. The Aggie women open their spring season this next week at the Midwestern State Invitational in Wichita Falls, Texas before meeting up with the men’s team for the two Kansas contests.

Complete results for the season can be found online at on the men’s and women’s golf schedule pages.
