Senior David Holmes carded a 3-over-par 75 in all three rounds as the Tennessee Volunteers ended the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters in a tie for ninth with a team score 64-over 928 on Sunday.
UNLV and UCLA were the only schools to keep their scores below 900 at the Las Vegas event, and they tied for the team championship with three-day totals of 35-over 899.
Once again, the entire field posted unusually high scores Sunday as 13 of the 15 schools shot worse than 15-over-par. Tennessee matched its second-round total of 25-over 313.
Holmes was a model of consistency for the Vols, shooting his third 75 in the three-day event. He kept damage to a minimum in the final round with one birdie on the 13th hole to go along with four bogeys on the day. He finished the tournament at 9-over 225, good for a 12th-place tie.
The rest of Tennessee's lineup did not fare as well, however. Junior Robin Wingardh shot an 8-over 80, largely because a 7-over back nine. He finished the tournament in a tie for 31st.
Sophomore Garrick Porteous had a 6-over 78 to finish the tournament with a total of 232. Sophomore Darren Renwick posted a 10-over 82 for the second day in a row to end with a 240 score. Freshman Jay Vandeventer had his worst day of the tournament, a 14-over 85, for a 247 total.
Arizona State's Jesper Kennegard took individual honors by hitting 3-over for the tournament. Just two players shot even par Sunday, one of them being Florida's Tyson Alexander, who finished with a 4-over performance and tied for second with Southern California's T.J. Vogel.
