The Iowa State men’s golf team finished in eighth place in its first competition of the spring season Wednesday at the Arizona Intercollegiate. 

The Cyclones finished with a three-round 884 total. Arizona finished in first place at a total of 850. This was the first time since the 2017-18 season the Cyclones finished below fifth place at the event.

Iowa State junior Lachlan Barker was the runner-up medalist, putting up numbers of 70-70-71 for a 2-under 211 tally. Barker was two shots shy of Brad Reeves of Arizona. 

Barker’s runner-up finish matched his career best as a Cyclone.

Tripp Kinney ended his first spring tournament in a tie for 17th place at 218, only seven shots behind Barker. Kinney struggled in the first round of the tournament, overall going 2-under through the final 36 holes with rounds of 69 and 71.

The Cyclones plan to compete again at the Prestige at PGA West on Feb. 15-17 in La Quinta, California.
