WSU men’s golf finished fourth in the Anteater Invitational held Monday and Tuesday at Big Canyon Country Club in Newport Beach, California.

The team finished with a three-round score of 880 (+16).

“When you finish fourth and still have some work to do, that’s a good sign,” Head Coach Dustin White said in a WSU news release. “The guys played pretty solid this week. Lots of positives to take away and build on for the spring.”

Cal State Fullerton won the event with a team score of 863 (-1), Grand Canyon took second and Santa Clara finished one stroke ahead of the Cougars to claim third.

Grand Canyon’s Filip Lundell won the individual title shooting a 208 (-8).

Junior Daniel Kolar led the Cougars, finishing in a tie for eighth with a score of 217 (+1)

Senior Grant Cole shot one-under par in the final round to tie for 14th with a three-round score of 221 (+5).

Senior AJ Armstrong tied for 20th with a score of 223 (+7) and junior Nicklaus Chiam finished one stroke behind him in 22nd.

Junior Scott Redelsperger rounded out the Cougars that competed, claiming a tie for 29th by shooting a 229 (+13).
