For three days at Southern Trace Country Club, LSU scorecards had a significant amount of red. At its own David Toms Intercollegiate in Shreveport, La., the Tigers made a statement with a 63-under team score that set up a 37-shot win over runner-up Memphis.
The 63-under 801 was by far a new program record for LSU. The previous best team-score record was a 41-under 811 from the 2016 Maui Jim Intercollegiate.
Last year at this event, LSU placed five players in the top 5. This year, Hayden White and Trey Winstead tied for first at 17 under. Winstead closed with 65 while White closed with 68. Garrett Barber added a 15-under total for a third-place finish and Philip Barbaree was T-5 at 11 under.
"Proud of the guys," Chuck Winstead, director of golf at LSU, said. "The conditions were nice and there was basically no wind this weekend, but you still have to hit the shots. I'm extremely proud of our whole group and how they played this weekend. (I'm) thrilled for Hayden and Trey as well. They played some solid golf these last two days."
Memphis was second at 26 under and Arkansas Tech was third at 22 under. Seven teams of the 12 in the field finished 54 holes under par at Southern Trace.
Interestingly, as low as LSU’s team score was, it still doesn’t break the NCAA 54-hole record. See below.
