Golf Team Finishes Fifth at Morris Williams
April 04, 2006

NORMAN, Okla.   The University of Oklahoma men’s golf team concluded the Morris Williams Intercollegiate at Austin Country Club in Austin, Texas, in fifth place Tuesday.  It marked the team’s third consecutive top-five finish this spring.

The Sooners recorded a team score of 295 (+7) on a day that saw only three teams break par at the 6,906 yard, par-72 layout. OU finished with a three-round team total of 868 (+4)

Oklahoma State took home the team title at 14-under-par, besting second-place Texas Tech by nine shots.  BYU was third at 863 (-1) and tournament host Texas was fourth at 864 (E).

OU was led by senior Justin Fraley, who carded rounds of 70, 70 and 75 to finish tied for 10th at 215 (-1).  Fellow senior Brodie Flanders also turned in a solid final round of two-under 70 to vault himself into a tie for 13th at 216 (E).  The top-15 finish marked the highest of his career.

Ben Hogan Award semifinalist Anthony Kim, winner of the Sooners’ previous two tournaments, finished in a tie for 25th after recording rounds of 69, 74 and 75.  His two-over 74 in round two also ended a streak of seven consecutive rounds of par or better dating back to the opening round of the Ashworth Invitational on Feb. 27.

Junior Nick Sheedy tied for 36th overall at 221 (+5) after carding a three-over 75 in Tuesday’s final round.

Senior Shawn LaFontaine finished in a tie for 57th at nine-over-par for the tournament.

BYU’s Oscar Alvarez took home medalist honors with a three-round score of 209 (-7), leaving him three shots clear of Oscar
Floren of Texas Tech and Oklahoma State’s Trent Leon.

The Sooners will wind up their “Texas trio” of events when they travel to College Station for the Texas A&M Aggie Invitational, April 15-16.
