CHAMPIONS OF THIS LAST TIME IN CABO
Down a few strokes, the Arizona State men's golf team in early March of 2020 -- playing without senior All-American Chun An Yu, who was competing in the Arnold Palmer Invitational March 5-8 -- didn't let a chance to win one of the best tournaments in men's college golf slip away. The Sun Devils got 3-under-68s from freshman David Puig, sophomore Cameron Sisk and freshman Ryggs Johnston and jumped 36-hole leader Arizona in tough wind to take an 8-stroke victory at 20-under-par 832 (281-277-274). Their third-round total of 274 was 10-under-par. Arizona State and Texas A&M were the only teams to break par in the windiest conditions of the three-day event.
