IOWA CITY, Iowa - Blake Snyder was 2-under in the final round of the Hawkeye Invitational and finished tied for sixth place in the 65-player field. He led the Washington State men's golf team, which was 13-over par in Sunday's final round and finished the tournament tied for sixth place.
Snyder carded a pair of 73s in the first two rounds of the tournament Saturday, and followed them with a 70 in the final round to conclude the competition at even-par.
"It was another great day for Blake," WSU Head Coach Garrett Clegg said. "He played really well, and that was good to see."
Hank Frame also finished in the top-25 individually. Frame shot a 3-over 75 in the final round and finished tied for 21st (7-over).
The Cougars shared sixth place with Iowa State, and were ten strokes back from fifth-place Nebraska (23-over.)
"The wind was blowing in the exact opposite direction today, and we just had a tought time making the right adjustments," Clegg said.
Kansas captured the tournament title with a team score of 3-over par (867). The tournament's host school, Iowa (second, 4-over), finished one stroke behind Kansas, making this the first time in the last four years that Iowa has not won the Hawkeye Invitational.
The WSU men will next travel to Los Angeles to compete in the Pac-12 Championships. The tournament is scheduled to take place April 29-May 1.
