USC Men's Golf Ties For Eighth At Lamkins San Diego Invitational
Freshman Shane Ffrench carded a par round while senior Kaito Onishi posted a top 20 finish for the third time this year, the USC men's golf team tying for eighth as play wrapped up at the Lamkin San Diego Classic at the San Diego C.C. in Chula Vista, Calif., on Wednesday (March 10).
The Trojans finished at a combined 19-over 883 (285-303-295). UCLA won the event at 3-over 867 while Nevada was second (10-over 874) and Washington third (11-over 875).
"It was another tough day out there today," USC Head Coach J.T. Higgins said. "We got off to a horrible start and never really recovered. We made some birdies coming down the stretch but it was too little, too late. We'll just put this one behind us and get ready for our next event."
Onishi took 16th at 2-over 218 (71-74-73) for his team-best third top 20 finish, his day including three birdies and an eagle on the par 5 14th hole.
Senior Leon D'Souza tied for 17th at 3-over 219 (68-77-74), his final round marked by a 6-over start through 11 holes and four birdies over his final six holes.
Ffrench, who tied for 23rd at 5-over 221 (73-76-72), began his round with two birdies en route to an even front. He was 1-under late in his round until a bogey on 18.
Sophomore Tyler Guo (73-76-78) and fifth-year senior Kyle Suppa (74-77-76), tied for 62nd at 11-over.
