GOODYEAR, AZ – The University of Iowa Men’s Golf team finished 13th in the Pioneer Classic played Tuesday and Wednesday at the par-72 Palm Valley Golf Course. The Hawkeyes finished with a 54-hole team score of 887. Wichita State (821) won the tournament by 37 strokes over second-place Northern Colorado (858).
