The ISU men’s golf team continued its struggles finishing 10th out of 12 teams at the University Club Intercollegiate in Baton Rouge, LA.

“This golf course exposed our weaknesses, and we played very poorly,” said ISU coach Andrew Tank. “Now we know what we need to work on, and it’s going to come down to how hard our guys want to work.”

The Cyclones shot a three-round total of 933. LSU won the meet carding a total of 886, edging out the second-place Chattanooga by one stroke.

Sophomore Borja Virto led the Cyclones for the second straight meet with a rounds of 75, 77, and 76 for a total of 228 landing him in a tie for 21st.

Right behind him were juniors Nate McCoy and Tom Lathrop with totals of 233 earning each a tie for 35th.

Stephan Jaeger of Chattanooga ran away with the meet finishing with a 209 total, which was seven strokes better than Iowa’s top golfer Vince India.
