NORMAN, Okla. -- The University of Oklahoma men's golf team shot a final-round 292 (+4) Sunday to finish in 10th place at the 15-team Brickyard Collegiate Championship in Macon, Ga. The Sooners carded a three-round 881 (+17) for the tournament.
OU, which entered the day tied for sixth place, recorded its lowest round of the tournament but was passed on the leaderboard by four opponents. Eight of the 15 teams broke par in the final round.
Georgia won the team title with its 857 (-7), fending off defending national champion Augusta State by one stroke at the 7,128-yard, par-72 Brickyard at Riverside course.
Freshman Michael Schoolcraft (+3) and senior Ryan Sirman (+4) led the way for the Sooners this weekend with solid three-round performances. Schoolcraft (72-76-71) broke par in the final round and finished tied for 25th place among the 84 competitors. He registered five birdies and just one bogey on the final day, but a triple-bogey on the par-5 sixth hole kept him from finishing considerably higher. Sirman (72-75-73) registered four birdies Sunday and finished tied for 32nd place.
