On a sun filled day at Virginia Country Club in Bixby Knolls, the Long Beach State men’s golf team finished in a tie for fifth place in the 21st Del Walker Intercollegiate Tuesday morning.

LBSU’s total score after three rounds was 875, including the lowest second round of all 15 teams at 283.

Virginia Country Club is the home course for the men’s team, which holds practice at the private course three times a week.

“We hoped the guys would be ready to play this tournament,” head coach Mickey Yokoi said. “It’s just golf. These guys are trying and at the end of the day all I ask is that they show effort.”

Redshirt sophomore Joe Fryer shot a second round 68 for the low score of the team over the weekend.

Fryer entered in a tie for eighth place, looking to climb the leaderboard on familiar ground.

“I was trying to win today,” Fryer said. “I only made one bogey on the front, and the rest pars, but I just wasn’t really able to get anything going.”

Fryer shot a four-over 74 in the final round and finished in a tie for 12th. The LBSU sharp-shooter totaled 215 strokes over three rounds.

Other notable performances for LBSU included sophomore Andres Gonzales (217) who birdied three of his final five holes in the final round and finished the tournament tied for 17th.

Sophomore Spencer Koch (219) jumped 19 spots and finished tied for 26th after shooting an even par 70 on Monday.

Boise State registered the lowest team score at 855 and won the tournament by four strokes. The individual championship was won by Boise State’s Brian Humphreys, who was one under par over three rounds.

LBSU travels to Las Vegas on March 10-11 for the Jack Rabbit Invitational at Siena Golf Club. They stay on the road the following week playing in the Bob Sitton Invitational in Dallas.
