SUGAR GROVE, Ill. – One of the most successful group of seniors in program history closed out their collegiate careers on Saturday, as the Mississippi State men’s golf team finished 12th at the Sugar Grove Regional.   

MSU (75-over-par 939) turned in its best score of the weekend during Saturday’s third round, shooting 22-over-par 310 to finish two strokes shy of 11th-placed Cal State Fullerton.

No. 9 Illinois overtook No. 21 UAB for first place at Sugar Grove, with No. 45 Purdue, No. 16 USC and No. 4 Cal rounding out the top five. The five squads will advance to the NCAA Championship, which is slated for May 23-28.

Senior Chad Ramey (t46) turned in a 19-over-par 235 to bring his season stroke average to 71.65 for the season. The Fulton, Miss., native edged out former Bulldog great Alex Rocha to set a new career-stroke record of 72.25 for the program.

The lone returning player, sophomore Ben Wood, tied with Ramey’s 19-over-par 235. After shooting a pair of 80’s for the first two rounds, Wood closed out his sophomore campaign with the best score (75) of any Bulldog at the Rich Harvest Farms course.

Finishing only a stroke apart from Ramey and Wood was senior Joe Sakulpolphaisan. The Thailand native finished the regional with a 20-over-par 236 to tie for 50th overall.

Rounding out the Maroon and White scorecard from Sugar Grove were seniors Barrett Edens (t57) and Axel Boasson (t64), the pair finished with a 22-over-par 238 and 27-over-par 243 respectively.
