Cats Finish 11th in Cowboy Classic

By The Mercury

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The Kansas State men’s golf team recorded a 35-over-par 595 to finish the 2013 Wyoming Cowboy Classic in 11th place.

K-State shot a 12-over 292 on Tuesday.

The Wildcats were led by senior Curtis Yonke, who finished the event in sixth place at 1-over 141.

“Our scores were just not good enough on a nice day to play,” K-State coach Tim Norris said. “There were no scores under par today and that has been our downfall all spring. But I thought Curtis played another great round of golf today. He just fell a little short. He played with the best golfers on the course all throughout the day.”

Ben Juffer ended the event in a tie for 43rd as he notched a final-round 3-over 73 to card a 10-over 150 over the course of the tournament.

Kyle Weldon finished in a tie for 91st, while Matt Green and Daniel Wood both tied for 95th.

Gonzaga earned the team title as it finished atop the leaderboard at 14-over 574. Glen Scher of UC Santa Barbara took home the top individual honor as he was the only competitor to finish under par at 2-under 138.

K-State will have next week off as the Wildcats will prepare to host the Big 12 Championships, April 22-24, at Prairie Dunes Country Club in Hutchinson.
