The Iowa State men’s golf team kept its 10th place position after the second and final round of golf at the Prestige. This time, the Cyclones are sharing it with Stanford.

The Cyclones performed quite consistently in the second round only scoring two strokes behind their score yesterday. The tournament came down to the wire between the top six positions. Oklahoma State and Pepperdine battled it out, and No. 2 Oklahoma State ended up sharing the crown with Pepperdine. The 2017 Prestige winner, LSU, ended up taking fourth in this year’s tournament with just 3 shots over par.

Although there was a slight drop in scores after the top six, the remaining teams were still very close in scoring. The Cyclones shot 28 over par; that’s 29 behind the leader, but seven behind East Tennessee State and Southern California.

Denzel Ieremia and Lachlan Barker ended up tied for 28th place in the individual race along with three others. Both men shot four strokes over par in the two rounds.

Tripp Kinney tied with four others at 52nd place. The sophomore ended with 9 swings over par to finish out the tourney.

Iowa State heads back to Tucson, Arizona next week for the National Invitational Tournament hosted by Arizona.
