“Not the finished we wanted. We didn’t make enough birdies this week and had far too many doubles. We had a chance late today to capitalize on some downwind holes, but we didn’t take advantage.”


  • Iowa’s 187 pars were the most through three rounds at the Johnnie-O; Meyer led Iowa with 41 pars through 54 holes.

Iowa hosts a loaded field at the Calusa Cup from April 2-4 at Calusa Pines Golf Club in Naples, Florida.
