Men’s golf is slowly wrapping up its season as they competed in the Old Waverly Intercollegiate Championship.

As a team, ULM finished seventh with LSU winning the championship by thirteen strokes.

Sophomore Joao Girao had the best showing for the Warhawks.

He shot a 4-over-par in the match and he finished tied for 12th to help ULM to a seventh place finish.

With conference play coming up the Warhawks are looking for a strong showing in Destin, Flor. “The guys competed well today,” ULM head coach Tim Baldwin said.

“We ended seven back of a top-five finish, so we’re bit disappointed, but we will use this as a momentum builder as we did a lot of things very well.

I’m proud of all our guys, as everyone contributed this week.

In the end, we dropped too many shots and didn’t make enough birdies to compete with the top teams this week,”  Baldwin said.

We’re now looking forward to the conference championships and hope to peak at the right time.

For ULM it has been a good season.

They have finished in the top-10 in all of their tournaments.

At the Border Olympics in Houston, Texas, the team finished tied for third in its best showing of the 2017-2018 season.
