Oct. 25, 2016

VERO BEACH, Fla. -- Competing in a strong field with five of GolfStat's top 50 teams among the 15 members, the Notre Dame men's golf team wrapped up the Quail Valley Collegiate Invitational by placing 13th at the par-72, 7,350-yard Quail Valley Golf Club in Vero Beach, Florida.

Notre Dame finished Tuesday's final round with a 292 (+4), leaving the Irish with a 54-hole score of 878 (+14) for the event. No. 43 Michigan State claimed the title with a 835 (-29), two strokes ahead of No. 37 North Florida's 837 (-27).

Player of the Day

Miguel Delgado paced the Irish for the day at a two-under-par 70 which also allowed him to become Notre Dame's top finisher in the event, slipping past teammate Blake Barens by a single stroke with a 214 (-2). Beginning his shotgun start round with a birdie on 15, Delgado would claim four birdies on the day overall, including a birdie on 14 (his final hole), only losing ground to a double bogey on 18.

Notre Dame's Lineup

There were no individuals in this event so the Irish, as with the other competing schools, just had their primary five players in action.

T21. Miguel Delgado (70-74-70=214, -2)
T24. Blake Barens (72-71-72=215, -1)
T61. Matthew Rushton (75-74-76=225, +9)
T67. Ben Albin (74-76-76=226, +10)
75. Thomas Steve (78-83-74=235, +19)

Impressive Front Nine of Season

The first half of Notre Dame's season was a successful one, with the Irish claiming three individual medalist honors, two team titles and a winning percentage of .560. In six events, the Irish saw six different golfer finish as the team's top player. This depth, series of solid team showings, and the training facilities at the Warren Golf Course's clubhouse will benefit the Irish when they return to competitive action in February.
