USF men’s golf was in perfect position to advance out of the NCAA Kissimmee Regional heading into day three at Reunion Resort’s Watson course, but the Bulls collapsed on the final day to card a 1-over 289 to finish eighth, dropping from fourth place prior to the start of play Wednesday. The Bulls finished 12-under for the tournament.
Senior Priyanshu Singh, who carded a 5-under 67 on Tuesday, couldn’t maintain that level of play on Wednesday and gave it all back in the final round as he finished with a 5-over 77.
No Bull recorded more than four birdies in the final round, which given the low scores throughout the tournament, wasn’t going to keep the Bulls in contention. Four schools recorded a team score of at least 10-under par, led by UF’s 17-under on their way to cruising to the regional victory with a 42-under.
C. finished in second with 30-under with Vandy (-22), UNC (-21), and Kent State (-20) rounding out the top-5 to advance to the NCAA Championships.
Senior Claudio Correa carded a 1-under 71 in his final collegiate round. He finished tied for 14th in the regional at 4-under. Correa was part of four NCAA tournament teams in his time at USF and cemented his place as one of the best to come through the program.
Fellow seniors Jimmy Jones had a team-best 2-under 70 in the final round (-3 overall) and Cristian DiMarco ended things with a 2-over 74 (-2 overall).
