    PALM CITY, Fla. - For the first time since early October, the University of Houston Men's Golf team did not sweep the team and individual titles at a tournament.

    The eighth-ranked Cougars tied for seventh with No. 12 Florida State with a 54-hole score of 1-under-par 851 at the Valspar Invitational at Floridian presented by Insperity on Tuesday afternoon. Houston swept both team and individual titles at each of their first three tournaments to open the spring season.

    Senior Curtis Reed shot 70 in the final round for his second par effort or better at the tournament and led the Cougars with a 15th-place finish at 1-under-par 212 on the 7,076-yard, par-71 course at Floridian Golf Club.

    Junior Roman Robledo - who won the individual titles at each of his last three events - surged in the final player standings with a 70 and tied for 30th at 215.

    Junior Kyle Pilgrim also shot 70 on Tuesday to move into 56th at 221. Other Cougars competing were senior Wesley McClain (217, t-36th) and sophomore Vincent Martino (219, t-47th).

    On the team side, No 4 Georgia Tech captured the team title after firing a final-round 283 and finished at 837, eight strokes ahead of No. 3 Oklahoma State. No. 21 Texas A&M (846) No. 27 LSU (847), 19 Arkansas (848) and No. 28 SMU (848) rounded out the top-six team leaders.

    The 15-team field featured four of the nation's top-10 ranked teams and 11 of the top 30.

    Individually, Georgia Tech's Ollie Schniederjans fired a 67 for the third-straight round to earn medalist honors at 12-under-par 201. LSU's Stewart Jolly placed second at 203, while Andrew Lister (Texas A&M) and Jack Maguire (Florida State) tied for third at 204.


    UP NEXT
    Following the Valspar Invitational at Floridian, the Cougars will compete at the 3M Augusta Invitational, hosted by GRU Augusta on April 5-6 at Forest Hills Golf Club in Augusta, Ga.

    From there, the team will conclude its regular-season slate when it takes part at the Reunion Intercollegiate, hosted by Mississippi at Reunion Golf and Country Club in Madison, Miss.
