WACO, TX (KXXV) -

The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor men’s golf team will take a three-tournament winning streak into the American Southwest Conference Championship after rolling to a ten-stroke victory at the West Region Invitational Tuesday in Georgetown. The Cru also tied for first in a fourth tournament this spring only to be edged on a scorecard playoff in that event.

The Cru fired three straight sub-300 rounds to finish with a 291-288-299=878. UMHB finished ten strokes ahead of tournament host Southwestern University’s 297-296-295=888 second-place total. Concordia Texas carded a 313-296-300=909 to take third place, Schreiner University shot 307-312-304=923 to claim fourth place while U.T. Dallas (299-308-317) and Trinity University (310-304-310) tied for fifth place with 924 team scores. An eight-team field competed in the tournament.

The Cru’s Mats Heien was the team’s low individual finisher after firing a 72-72-74=218 to tie for second place. Southwestern University’s Tyler Gammill won individual medalist honors after edging Heien by one stroke with a 73-74-70=217. UMHB’s Alden Fortner finished fifth after carding a 74-74-72=220, Jarrod Brown finished seventh at 73-72-77=222, Mason Wyatt tied for ninth place after shooting 75-70-79=224 and Kyle Revis recorded a 72-80-76=228 to finish in 15th place.

“We are thrilled to win, especially with the windy conditions today and such a strong field,” Cru Head Coach Jordan Cox said. “We’ve had a great year and are looking forward to playing for a conference championship in a couple of weeks. Our entire team has worked so hard this year. We have a big group of seniors and it is nice to see that efforts rewarded. Our goal is to play in the NCAA Championships in May.”

The two-day, 54-hole event was played on a par-72, 6,569-yard layout at Berry Creek Golf Course in Georgetown. The UMHB men will return to action with the ASC Championship Tournament on April 18th and 19th. That tournament will be played at Comanche Trace Golf Club in Kerrville with the ASC champion clinching an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III National Championships.
