Men's Golf Finishes Third in California
ARROYO GRANDE, Calif. -- The Creighton men's golf team finished third at the Lamkin Grip/Cal Poly Invitational in Arroyo Grande, Calif., on Friday. The Jays recorded team totals of 296 and 305 in the two-round event played over two days at the par-72, 6,803-yard Cypress Ridge Golf Course. Host Cal Poly defeated Sacramento State in a playoff to capture the team title.
The Jays were led by junior Austin Miller. He carded rounds of 73 and 71 to finish with an even-par 144. Miller's second-round 71 was his fifth round of par or better in 2010-11 and only one stroke off his season-best mark of 70.
Creighton sophomore John Rasmussen and freshman Collin Craft were the Jays' next-best finishers. They both recorded two-round totals of 152 to tie for 16th place. Rasmussen put together back-to-back rounds of 76, while Craft used rounds of 74 and 78.
The Jays are back on the course April 3-5 at the UMB Bank Missouri Intercollegiate in Columbia, Mo.
