Junior Daniel Engle led the Utes at the Arizona Intercollegiate for the second year in a row
Jan. 29, 2013
Tucson, Ariz. - The University of Utah golf team placed 14th at the Arizona Intercollegiate with a team score of 910 (306-295-309). Junior Daniel Engle was the top Ute with a 225 (75-70-80), tying for 54th. His one-under 70 in the second round marked his a season-low.
Redshirt freshman Jonathon Thomas improved each round, including a 12-stroke improvement from the first round to the second. He finished with a 244 (90-78-76). Competing as individuals unattached to the team, senior Joe Webber (76-78-74) and sophomore Jack Maerki each shot a 228 (74-75-79).
After posting a first-round 306, the Utes scratched out a 295 in the second round, which was suspended due to darkness on Monday and was finished Tuesday. Following a solid start to the final round, Utah's efforts were undone by big numbers on individual holes, which seemed to plague them all weekend. The Utes closed the event with a final-round 309.
The Utes will have almost a month off before their next event, when the team will head to Kahuka, Hawai'I for the John Burns Intercollegiate, Feb. 20-22.
