Ramey Finishes 11th, Bulldogs Hold On To Sixth Place At Jack Nicklaus Invitational
MSU shot a 15-over-par 299 Monday, giving the Bulldogs a three-round score of 39-over 891 at the Scarlett Course.
Ramey posted a 5-over 218 to tie for 11th, capping another stellar performance.
“I thought it was poor performance in general and we have to get much better,” Coach Clay Homan said. “We are just not where we need to be, particularly in the short game. We are not saving enough shots around and on the greens to be competitive with the best teams in the country. Playing the Scarlet Course at Ohio State was good for us because it is a different look than what we normally see and it really exposed some of our weaknesses.”
Sophomore Ben Wood notched his second Top 25 of the season, firing off a 9-over 222 to tie for 24th overall.
True freshman Jackson Dick improved his score each round at the Jack Nicklaus Invitational. The Australian native fired a final round 4-over 75 after shooting a 9-over 80 and 6-over 77 on Sunday.
No.1 ranked California won the tournament with a 10-under 842.
Homan’s squad returns to action Monday, Oct. 7, for the Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate in Birmingham, Ala.
