Palo Alto, Calif. - Finishing out the ultra-competitive Goodwin at the Stanford Golf Course, the Tigers stood pat in the middle of the pack, finishing in 12th place in the three-day, 26-team, tournament. Pacific finished the final round on Saturday afternoon at seven-over par to close out the tournament at +24.

The Tigers finish came thanks to a 13th place finish from their freshman Tyler Burnes who came up with a +2, 72 on day three to finish +1 overall for the tournament. The 13th place finish marked the best individual tournament finish for the freshman in his inaugural season of collegiate golf. In all, Burnes led the way overall for the Tigers but finished tied for second on the day thanks to a season-best -2, 68 out of Colten Passey. The senior led the day for the Tigers as he came up with four birdies on the day and scored an impressive eagle on the par-5, 539-yard, 7th, to cap his day. Overall, Passey finished his tournament tied for 59th at +8.

Individually, the tournament title went to the Aggies' Luke Vivolo who led the tournament from start to finish and held on for a one-shot win at -10. The team title was also taken by UC Davis which posted a season-best finish to run away from the field for a 10-stroke victory. In all, the Aggies finished the weekend tournament at -13.

The Tigers will step back on the course in two weeks time when they head to Provo, Utah to take part in BYU's PING Cougar Classic from April 11-12. The tournament marks the final regular season tournament for the Tigers before heading to the WCC Championships at Blackhawk Country Club in Danville, Calif. from April 18-20.
