PROVO, Utah – The Brigham Young University men’s golf team took home the victory at the PING Cougar Classic at Riverside Country Club on April 11 with the help of its underclassmen – only one senior is on the team.
Junior Patrick Fishburn and freshman Rhett Rasmussen have had standout seasons. Coach Bruce Brockbank said that Rasmussen’s game two weeks ago, where Rasmussen took home first place, was one of the best rounds of golf he’s seen in a while.
“Everybody’s played their role, but Rhett has been a great addition to our team,” Brockbank said.
The team finished 11 under par. Fishburn took home fifth place and Rasmussen carded the lowest round for the Cougar’s with 3 of the team’s 9 birdies. Brockbank said he couldn’t be more excited for the team and the way they’ve stepped up.
The Cougars will be back at Riverside Country Club April 20 – 22 to compete in the West Coast Conference championship.
