Junior Luke Miller led Iowa with a 216 total, including a round of 69 on the final day that earned a sixth place finish in the individual standings. Junior Brian deBuhr shot 217 to place seventh, sophomore Todd Larson was ninth (219) and sophomore Jon Feldick and junior Andy Tiedt each shot 227 to share 22nd place. deBuhr shot 69 on Friday and 70 on Saturday to pace Iowa before Miller led the way on Sunday.
QUOTING COACH ANDERSON — “I was disappointed in our start on Friday, we weren’t ready and just didn’t play well on our home course. We were completly different in rounds two and three. I was proud of the come-from-behind win, but not happy with the start. This will be a good, competitive event in Memphis. We have been in the hunt in our three events this fall. We need to continue to improve and maintain our consistency. It’s a strong field on what is considered the best course in Memphis.”
COACH Terry Anderson — Anderson is in his 12th year as Iowa’s head coach. Anderson was a four-year letterman at Iowa State. He also serves as the Director of Golf at Iowa’s Finkbine Golf Course.
