Ole Miss’s men’s golf team closed the match at the Blessings Collegiate Invitational on Wednesday, finishing third as a team with 861 (-3) three-day points. The Rebels entered the third day in a tough field and stayed there for the last 294 (+6) yards.
Ole Miss led the camp by par-4 scores (+9) for the continuation of the competition, while also leading the field with full aggregation (175). The Rebels were the only three teams to make two eagles in blessing, with ye Kye Meeks and Jackson Suber making each piece.
Seeking his first win of the season’s competition and his third in his career, Suber entered Wednesday’s final round with a draw in third place in the under-six under-week. Suber had a solid start and went under his first 10 holes, including the eagle at number 10 which gave him a moment to lead.
Despite his best efforts, Suber ended up scoring 72 (E), taking sixth place each. The great apostate got his twelfth year finishing his career. Suber finished the tournament with the second-highest high school of par-4 (-4), only after the final actor of the tournament Luke Long of Arkansas.
Brett Schell looks set to perform well the week before Wednesday, while St Augustine, a native of Florida, did just that with 73 (+1) on the day of finishing 2-under par per week. His last round had four top birdies as a team. Schell finished the red race with 54 holes and tied the twelfth one, which is a wonderful end to his professional career.
Senior Sarut Vongchaisit fought for a 1-over par round to complete his tournament in Fayetteville, with several distances helping keep his team in the lead. Vongchaisit managed to shoot 36 (E) nine ahead of him while making a few birdie bogeys at number 18 to close his church.
Evan Brown was around the same as yesterday at Blessings, drawing 76 (+4) over his 18-hole game. A few birdies on Brown’s nine backs were involved in Loyola’s transfer, as three bogeys doubled in his final round to put him on the 27th with teammate Vongchaisit in his first tournament as a Rebel.
Finishing the rebel game was the new redshirt Kyle Meeks, who finished 223 (+7) in his starting Ole Miss in three days. The highlight of the Meeks tournament came on Tuesday when the Walnut native, Mississippi became one of only nine players on the field who made the eagle all week.
As a host, Arkansas was able to run with the team title and individual titles in the blessings. The Razorbacks finished with a team of 846 (-18) per week, while Luke Long of 205 (-11) led each stadium.
The Rebels now have a short time to lead their next tournament as the team travels to Birmingham, Alabama this Sunday to take part in the SEC Match Play Championship (October 10-12) at Shoal Creek Club.
