SPRING, Texas -- University of Houston sophomore Pryce Beshoory posted a round in the 60s for the third straight round to captured medalist honor for the first collegiate title of his career with a score of 12-under 204 at the Colin Montgomerie Invitational.

Competing on the 7,067-yard, par-72 course at Augusta Pine Golf Club, Beshoory drained six birdies in Tuesday' round on the way to a 68. The Pearland, Texas, native opened the tournament with 69-67 on Monday.

Starting the day on No. 15, Beshoory made three straight pars before draining three straight birdie on No. 18 and Nos. 1-2. Following four more pars, he made birdie on the par-4 seventh hole before enduring back-to-back bogeys on Nos. 8-9.

After another par on No. 10, he enjoyed two birdies in a three-hole stretch on Nos. 11-13 before ending the tournament with a par on No. 14.

Beshoory became the ninth different Cougar to win an individual title under Director of Golf Jonathan Dismuke and the first since senior Michael Perras captured the 2017 American Athletic Conference Championships title.

Teammate and freshman Alexander Frances carded a 1-under 71 Tuesday and finished second at 205. The Stege, Denmark, native overcame a pair of bogeys with three birdies in the Final Round for the best finish of his young career.

On Monday, France posted a 64 in the afternoon round, becoming only the eighth player in school history to post a 64 or lower.

Making his collegiate debut, freshman Andrew Gibson tied for 20th at 218. Sophomore Sam Elkington tied for 36th with a score of 222.

Abilene Christian won the team championship with a score of 857. Bradley finished second at 859 with UT Rio Grande Valley (865), Northern Colorado (867) and Houston Baptist (869) and North Dakota State (869) rounding out the top-six leaders.
