The Utah State golf team finished up play on Tuesday at the Cowboy Classic in Scottsdale, Ariz. The team finished the tournament 22nd out of 24 teams with a 54-over 614. The Aggies have one more event before finishing the season with the WAC championship, which will take place from April 30-May 1.
Junior Tanner Higham finished the final round with a 2-over 72, ending the tournament with a
9-over 149, finishing tied for 40th. Freshman Seokwon Jeon finished tied for 100th with a 18-over 158, shooting a 2-over 72 in the final round.
After the WAC championship, the team will get ready for the move to the Mountain West Conference, which will take effect July 1.
“We feel like we have a good team and that we can compete in the conference,” said head coach Dean Johansen. “It will be very competitive with more good teams. Overall, we feel like the move will benefit us greatly.”
The Aggies will head to Provo to compete in the BYU Cougar Classic on April 26.
