UH Golfers Finish 4th at U.S. Collegiate






LOS CABOS, Mexico (Apr. 10) -- The No. 10 ranked University of Houston golf team shot a steady two-over par 290 in Sunday's final round to finish in fourth place among a prestigious field of 12 teams at the 2000 Compaq U.S. Collegiate in Los Cabos, Mexico.

The Cougars finished the 54-hole tournament with a team total of 861 strokes for a three-day total of three shots under par. UH was 23 shots off the lead of tournament champion Georgia Tech (838, -26) and just nine strokes behind second place Clemson (852, -12).

Houston was paced by senior Chris Morris, who tied for seventh in the 60-player field with a three-round total of 211. Morris shot a one over-par 73 Sunday to finish five shots under par for the tournament and eight strokes behind individual champion Edward Loar of Oklahoma State (203, -13). It was the Tyler, Texas, native's best finish since carding a fifth-place at the Carpet Capitol Classic last October.

Senior James Edmondson also posted his best career finish (20th place) with a career-best score of even par 216. Junior Andy Sanders and senior B.J. Staten recorded the team's best scores Sunday with identical even-par rounds of 72. Sanders tied for 24th overall (218, +2) while Staten tied for 29th just two strokes back (220, +4). Sophomore Wade Ormsby was 31st with a five-over 221.

The Cougar golf team will next be in action at the Conference USA Championships April 17-19. Houston will be looking to defend its three-straight league titles at the Hidden Creek Golf Course in Navarre, Florida.
