    AUGUSTA, Ga. - The University of Houston golf team fired a team score of 292 during Sunday's final round at the Insperity Augusta State Invitational but was unable to move any higher in the final standings, tying for seventh with No. 29 Clemson.

    Competing in a field with 13 of the nation's top-50 teams, the Cougars opened the month of April on the 7,143-yard, par-72 course at Forest Hills Golf Club. The Cougars, who are ranked No. 25 nationally in the latest polls, finished ahead of No. 16 SMU, No. 24 Illinois and No. 40 Baylor with their total.

    Junior Curtis Reed was the Cougars' steadiest performer for the third straight round but overcame a slow start to do so. The Castroville, Texas, native bogeyed two of his first three holes to start the final round but quickly settled down with four birdies and 10 pars over the final 14 holes.

    Reed drained three straight birdies on holes 9, 10 and 11 to lead the Cougars at a tournament for the sixth time this season.

    Other Cougars in action were sophomore Kyle Pilgrim (t-23rd, 220), junior Bryn Flanagan (t-42nd, 224), freshman Vincent Martino (t-45th, 225) and junior Wesley McClain (t-57th, 228).

    For the second straight season, No. 6 Texas won the team title, finishing two strokes ahead of host Augusta State. No. 17 Georgia (866), No. 37 Virginia Tech (868), No. 35 South Carolina (872) and No. 27 Tennessee (878) rounded out the top-six team leaders.

    Individually, Coastal Carolina's Sebastian Soderberg birdied the fifth playoff hole to defeat UCF's Greg Eason and earn medalist honors.


    UP NEXT
    Before returning home, the Cougars will enjoy watching practice rounds on Monday as spectators at The Masters at Augusta National Golf Club.

    The Cougars return to competition on April 13-14 when they compete at the Morris Williams Intercollegiate at the University of Texas Golf Club in Austin, Texas. It will be the second of three tournaments for the Cougars in the month of April.
