Men’s Golf Completes Fall Competition At Saint Mary’s Invite
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Carson Enright, Mateo Fuenmayor and Nolan Thorughgood all finished in a tie for 28th as the Oregon State men's golf team concluded fall action Wednesday at the Saint Mary's Invitational.
The trio all shot a 1-over 214 over the three days to conclude their trip. Overall, the Beavers finished in seventh at 7-over (294-280-285—859). OSU finished at 1-over 285 on the final day of action.
"Coming in to the season I knew we would have some ups and downs after losing two all-conference players," Oregon State head coach Jon Reehoorn said. "We began pretty solidly at the Husky Invite, but never really seemed to be able to get any momentum.
"Each of the guys on our team had really good moments throughout the fall, but for us to compete at the highest level we need for someone to be ok with 'being the guy.' Someone we can count on to show up each week and compete for the individual win.
"This group has a lot of talent, we need to maximize our ability to get the most out of our skills. The simple shots around the greens need to be executed at a much higher level."
Thoroughgood capped off his play with a 2-under 69 Wednesday after finishing at 3-over 74 Monday before shooting par on Tuesday. He tied for the tournament lead with 14 birdies.
Enright finished at a par-71 on Wednesday, a day after leading the Beaver contingent with a 4-under 67. He bounced back after a 5-over 76 to open the invitational. He totaled 11 birdies over the three days.
Fuenmayor shot at par each of the first two days of action and ended the invitational at 1-over 72 on Wednesday. He totaled three birdies on Wednesday to finish with 13 over the three days.
Jackson Lake shot at 2-over 73 on Wednesday and finished in a tie for 61st at 7-over 220 (73-74-73). He tallied eight birdies over the three days.
Carson Barry finished in a tie for 73rd at 10-over 223 (77-71-75). He tallied 11 birdies in Pebble Beach.
The tournament closed out the fall for Oregon State, which will return to action Feb. 3-5 in Waimea, Hawai'i.
"I'm excited for what's ahead the next few months," Reehoorn said. "This group hasn't played close to the level I know we are capable of. When we do, it might serve as a launching pad for the next two years as we will return our entire roster next season."
