The men's golf team at LSU competed in the inaugural Maui Jim Intercollegiate Tournament in Scottsdale, Arizona. The Tigers added a team score of 14-under par 270 in the final round to their 270 in Friday’s first round and 13-under 271 in Saturday’s second round to finish with a 54-hole total of 41-under par 811 for the tournament. It was five shots better than Baylor’s 36-under 816 for second place and 17 shots in front of first-round leader Kent State’s 24-under 828 in third place.
When the Tigers opened their 2016 spring season by winning the team title at The Prestige at PGA West with a final score of 26-under par 826, they eclipsed their previous school-record score of 21-under par set in the team’s fourth-place finish in the same event in 2015. They raised the bar by another 15 strokes this weekend at Mirabel Golf Club.
By winning their first team championship of the 2016 fall season at the Maui Jim Intercollegiate with their 41-under par 811, the Tigers posted the lowest 54-hole tournament score as a team since at least 1985.
