RUSTON - Despite a roller coaster fall season that saw plenty of highs and lows for the Louisiana Tech golf team, the Bulldogs head into the winter off-season ranked 78th in the country out of almost 300 Division I programs.

Head coach Jeff Parks and the Bulldogs played in four fall events, highlighted by a second place finish in the 11-team field of the Squire Creek Invitational and a fifth place finish at the 18-team UTA/Waterchase Invitational.

Tech struggled in its final event of the fall, finished ninth in the highly-competitive 11-team David Toms Intercollegiate hosted by LSU. In that event, the Bulldogs got off to a slow start before recorded the third best final round of the tournament.

Seniors Sam Forgan and Cody Santone both led the Bulldogs during the fall, both averaging one stroke over par for the four events and each registering five rounds of par or better. Sophomore Travis Wilmore was a pleasant surprise, averaging a 73.8 in his 11 competitive rounds during the fall.

The Bulldogs are the third highest ranked Western Athletic Conference team in the current golfstat.com rankings, trailing only 63rd ranked New Mexico State and 77th ranked San Jose State.

Tech will open up its spring schedule Feb. 13 and 14 at the UTSA/Oak Hills Invitational at Oak Hills Country Club in San Antonio.
