GREENVILLE, S.C. – The Iowa State men’s golf team wrapped up competition at the Furman Invitational, Sunday. The Cyclones carded a final round score 297, bringing their tournament total to 879 (292-290-297). The team finished fifth out of a 21-team field.

Virginia Tech came away with the team victory, scoring the lowest team total in each of the three rounds. The Hokies finished the tournament with an 843 (280-286-277), 19 strokes ahead of second place North Florida (284-286-292 = 862).

Ben Hogan Award watch list member Scott Fernandez fired an even-par 72 in the final round, tying for medalist with Samford’s Drew Aimone at 209. Fernandez has finished in the top three in five of six tournaments in the 2012-13 season, but this was his first individual victory. Fernandez shot all three rounds at or below par (69-68-72), and the 209 marks the lowest three-round score of the season for the Grenada, Spain native.

Cyclone junior Zach Steffen also carded a season-low 222 (74-72-76) over the weekend. Steffen tied for 33rd.

The fifth-place finish also marks the second highest team finish for the Cyclones this season.

Iowa State will return to the links on Friday, April 5th at the ASU Thunderbird Invitational in Tempe, Ariz.
