Fresno State Captures Fifth Place Finish at Nick Watney Invitational

FRESNO  – After ending play on Monday in sixth place, Fresno State fluctuated between fourth and seventh during the final round on Tuesday en route to a fifth place overall finish at the Nick Watney Invitational. The ‘Dogs were led by Justin Avery and Alex Lee, both of whom finished tied for ninth after shooting a three-day score of 218, 5-over-par.

“There was some good, there was some bad,” head coach Chad Spencer said. I don’t think our guys realized how hard this golf course (Sunnyside CC) was going to be. You play it on a day-to-day basis and you don’t get to see it in tournament condition very often, but we had some good stretches. I’m really happy for Justin and Alex, who didn’t have their A stuff this week, but were able to claim top 10 finishes.”
