Houston, Texas – The New Mexico State men’s golf team finished seventh overall at the 2014 Bayou City Collegiate Championship, at The Golf Club of Houston, Sunday afternoon. The Aggies ended the tournament at 4-over par, 868 (294-289-285). In the final round, the Aggies carded a 3-under par, 285.

“I thought we had a solid tournament,” head coach Mike Dirks said. “We showed that we can play with some of the best teams in the country. I liked the fact that we are making good decision on the course. The difference between good teams and great teams isn’t that much. I think we are a good team now but we are close to becoming a great team.”

Junior Brett Walker ended the three-round tournament at 3-under par, 213, tying for 15th overall. In the final round, Walker was even-par, 72.

Freshman Travis Benson finished 87th overall with a three-round score of 28-over par, 244. In the final round, he was 10-over par, 82.
