Fresno, Calif. - The Pacific golf team finished up the Nick Watney Invitational today, shooting a +4 on the final 18 to finish in 12th overall.  Pacific started the day in 13th with a score of +33 after yesterday's 36 holes and fought up the standings to tenth but ended up two strokes back from the top ten.  Pacific's +4 round was the sixth-best of any team today.

Austin Fox finished the Invitational with the best score among all Tigers at 221 over three rounds.  He shot a 73 today, two over par, matching his score from the first round yesterday.  The freshman birdied twice today and ended the tournament in 31st.

It was Geoff Fry who had the best final round for the Tigers with a one under par.  Fry birdied three times and hit par in all but two holes today.  His tough first round hurt Fry's overall score, however, putting him in 52nd.

Casey Scott was right behind Fry today with a 71, hitting par perfectly.  His total score of 222 put him just one stroke back of Fox and 37th overall.  Scott managed three birdies today, twice birdieing on par-threes.

James Feutz and Mateo Leon rounded out Pacific's tournament showing.  Feutz shot a 74 today and improved in every round in the Nick Watney Invitational, ending with a score of 229.  Leon had a 78 despite two birdies today and ended the tournament with a 230.

Next up for the Tigers is the Bill Cullum Invitational in Simi Valley, California.  That tournament will begin on Monday, October 17 at the Wood Ranch Golf Course.
