Gard Leads Titans to Fourth Place Finish

FULLERTON, Calif. -- Junior Corey Gard fired a 3-under 69 in the final round of the Bill Cullum Invitational to lead Cal State Fullerton to a fourth-place finish over the 54-hole tournament, held at Wood Ranch Golf Club in Simi Valley.

The Titans shot an 868 to finish four over par, while San Diego won the event with a 14-under mark with an 850 team score. Arizona State finished nine off the leaders (859) and Washington State finished two over (866) to round out the top three. Cal State Fullerton was four shots better than UC Irvine, which finished in the fifth spot.

Gard wound up in a four-way tie for fifth (-3, 213), while teammate Mark Anguiano's two-under 70 elevated him to a tie for ninth (-1, 215). Dakota Duerr shot a 70 during final round action to tally a final 217 card, which was good enough for 14th.

Ryan Tetrault finished at 3-over (225), while Michael Chloe entered the clubhouse with a 230 over the three rounds. 

The team is next in action at the Warrior Wave Princeville Intercollegiate on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, from Nov. 5-7.
