The Fulton, Miss., native finished the 54-hole event in a three-way tie for first, sending Ramey, Robert Geibel of Louisville and Mark Anguiano of Cal State Fullerton to a sudden-death playoff hole. The senior Bulldog parred the hole, but Geibel nailed a birdie for the WPMI title.
Despite tying a school record, MSU finished third at the WPMI. The Bulldogs turned in a 38-under-par 826 to tie the program’s all-time record set in 1983. Cal State Fullerton (42-under 822) held off Louisville (41-under 823) for the WPMI team championship.
State improved its record to 42-31-1 after beating out 14 teams in Hawaii, including Top 50 clubs No. 15 Baylor, No. 27 Arizona State and No. 42 East Tennessee State.
"Our guys competed hard all week and we beat several good teams,” Bulldog coach Clay Homan said. “Overall it was a positive way to end the fall season and I’m proud of how all of our guys played this week."
All five Bulldogs finished under par for the WPMI.
Senior Joe Sakulpolphaisan posted his second Top 10 of the season after shooting a 5-under 67 on Wednesday. The total score of 12-under 204 propelled Sakulpolphaisan to fifth place.
A total score of 7-under 209 helped sophomore Ben Wood turn in his fourth top 25 of the season after tying for 15th overall.
Seniors Axel Boasson (2-under 214) and Barrett Edens (1-under 215) finished tied for 35th and 41st, respectively, from Hawaii.
The Bulldogs will have a three-month layoff before teeing off the spring slate in Houston, Texas, for the Bayou City Collegiate Championship.
