SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Freshman Trey Winstead fired the team’s lowest round of the weekend with a 4-under par 68 while fellow freshman Jacob Bergeron added a 3-under 69 in Sunday’s final round at Desert Forest Golf Club to lead the LSU Men’s Golf team to fourth place at the Maui Jim Intercollegiate.

Sophomore Philip Barbaree also broke par on the day with a 1-under par 71 with junior All-American Luis Gagne and junior Nathan Jeansonne both carding matching rounds of 2-over 74 to close out the event.

The Tigers settled into fourth place in the final team standings in their team-title defense after posting a team round of 6-under 282 on Sunday for a 54-hole score of 2-under 862 for the weekend. Arizona State earned a one-shot victory over Georgia Tech with a winning total of 7-under par 857 for three rounds. Kent State trailed two shots back in third place at 5-under 859.

For the Tigers, it marked their second-straight fourth-place finish to open up the 2017 fall season after kicking off the campaign with a similar finish at the Carpet Capital Collegiate Classic held only two weeks ago at The Farm Golf Club in Rocky Face, Georgia.

Freshmen Firing

Both freshmen in the LSU lineup closed out the weekend with the lowest rounds of their young careers as Winstead wrote six birdies and two bogeys on his scorecard for a 4-under 68 and Bergeron totaled five birdies and two bogeys of his own for a 3-under 69 to lead the way for the Tigers in Sunday’s final round.

Winstead birdied each of his first two holes at the par-four first and par-five second and added a third in his first five holes at the par-four fifth to quickly move to 3-under par for the day. After falling back to 1-under in his round with bogeys at Nos. 6 and 11, he three of his final seven holes down the stretch at the par-three 12th, par-five 16th and par-five 18th to sign for a team-low 4-under 68.

Bergeron bookended his round with bogeys at the par-three third and par-three 17th holes with five birdies in between at Nos. 5, 9, 10, 13 and 16 to follow Winstead across the finish line with a round of 69.

Winstead propelled himself 14 spots up the leaderboard into the Top 10 for the first time in his collegiate career as he tied for 10th place while breaking par at 1-under 215 for the weekend. He trailed only Barbaree with his performance as Barbaree tied for eighth place on the final leaderboard at 2-under 214 thanks to his second-straight round of 1-under 71.

After opening with a tie for 24th place at the Carpet Capital Collegiate Classic, Bergeron took home his first top-20 finish of the season as he tied for 20th place with a final score of 3-over par 219.

Gagne and Jeansonne equaled one another’s effort on the final  day with scores of 2-over 74 to tie for 22nd place overall with scores of 4-over 220 in their second starts of the season. Sophomore Carter Toms wrapped up the event in a tie for 59th place at 18-over par 234 while playing as an individual.

With the 2017 fall season now in full swing, the Tigers return home to Baton Rouge in two weeks to play host to their ninth-annual David Toms Intercollegiate running Oct. 7-8 at the University Club. They follow with an appearance at the Tavistock Collegiate Invitational being held Oct. 22-24 at Isleworth Golf & Country Club in Windermere, Florida.
