by Steve Kirkland

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. –– The New Mexico men’s golf team concluded its 2021-22 season at the NCAA Palm Beach Gardens Regional on Wednesday with the final round at PGA National. The Lobos shot 19-over during the third round to finish the event in 10th place at 38-over.

Vanderbilt, Florida State, Florida, South Florida and College of Charleston were the top five finishers at the tournament and will advance to the NCAA Championships.

Sam Choi was the top individual for the Lobos, shooting a final round 73 to finish T-13th at 1-over for the week. Carson Herron shot 77 in the final round, while Bastien Amat shot 78, Matthew Watkins shot 79 and Brandon Shong shot 80.

“It was a tough way to finish the season,” said head coach Glen Millican. “The guys played well this year and we are a good enough team, but we just didn’t play well here this week. They played hard but it just wasn’t enough to advance.”
