The North Texas men’s golf team took 14th place in its last tournament of the calendar year as the Mean Green traveled to Windermere, Florida to compete in the Tavistock Collegiate Invitational.

The team shot a combined 21-over par at the event, which came to a conclusion Tuesday. Junior Ian Snyman led the way with a 11th place individual finish on the leaderboard after shooting 2-under par.

The tournament was held at one of the tougher courses the Mean Green have played at this season and the extremely competitive field consisted of thirteen of the top 45 teams in the country.

“We played against some of the best teams in the country this week,” head coach Brad Stracke said. “I believe you learn a lot more about yourself playing better competition than playing weak opponents.”

Snyman was on top of the team leaderboard and shot his tournament-best 68 during the final round Tuesday after shooting a 74 and 72 in the previous two rounds.

He helped the team climb the charts to 14th after North Texas began the morning in 17th place.

“My putter was hot and helped me capitalize on good approaches and save par,” Snyman said. “I learned from my mistakes of uncommitted golf shots in the first round and managed to keep things together for the last two rounds.”

Redshirt senior Andrew Hudson had a productive weekend, as he shot a first round 72 and posted a score of 74 in his next two rounds. Junior Thomas Rosenmueller shot his tournament-best 2-under par on Tuesday and finished the event 6-over par, tying for 44th.

“I played great in the last round,” Rosenmueller said. “But I still have a lot of room for a better score.”

The Mean Green will begin their offseason training now that the 2017 fall season has ended. After the early results, North Texas realizes the team has a high ceiling and plans on working to reach it over the next few months.

The Mean Green will tee off their spring season Feb. 16th in Humble, Texas at the All-American Intercollegiate.

“I look forward to getting better in the offseason and starting strong next spring,” Rosenmueller said. “We have a great team and with good work, we can achieve anything we want.”
