Oahu, HI - The Loyola Marymount men's golf team finished the 2007 fall season with an 11th place finish at the Turtle Bay College Invitational on the Fazio Course of the Turtle Bay Resort on Wednesday. The Lions finished the tournament a record 23-under par, shattering the record they set at the NCAA West Regional in 2006 with a 17-under par.
The Lions posted rounds of 275, 284 and 282 for a three-round total of 841, six strokes better than the 847 they shot in Tucson to advance to the NCAA Championships 18 months ago. LMU's low scores where part of overall low scores in the tournament as Tennessee won with a score of 800. Other notables in the top-10 were fellow West Coast Conference foes Saint Mary's in a tie for fourth with an 829 and Pepperdine in a tie for eighth at 833.
Leading the Lions was junior Brian Locke with a three-round score of nine-under par (207). He posted a final round of 68 to go with rounds of 70 and 69. The score was good for a tie at 19th in the 21-team, 115-man field.
Senior Jason D'Amore finished in a tie for 21st with a score of 208. After rounds of 66 and 72, he posted a final round of 70.
Rounding out the scores were Greg Moss with a 214, John Lim with a 215 and Bryan Martin with a 217. Moss posted a final round 73 for a tie at 58th while Lim posted a 71 for a tie at 66th. Martin posted a 75 on Wednesday for a tie at 73rd.
Spring tournament play begins on Feb. 25 at the Anteater Invitational.
