FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – University of Arkansas senior golfer Craig Lile claimed his third tournament title of the year on Tuesday after shooting a final round 68 and finishing 6-under at the University of Texas-San Antonio Invitational at Oak Hills Country Club in San Antonio, Texas.
The Lile-led Razorback squad moved up one spot in the third round finishing in a tie at sixth-place with a three-day total of 878. That is third best finish in a tournament this season for the Hogs.
Lile added the final round 68 (2-under par) to his two-round total from Monday (71-68) to finish at 207 for the tournament. Tied at No. 1 with Lile was University of Texas-Arlington’s Luke Main. This is Lile’s third title of the year claiming the Cleveland Golf Intercollegiate and the Pepsi Southwest Missouri State Challenge in the fall and was his fifth-tournament win as a Razorback.
Finishing second for the Razorbacks was sophomore Drew Higginbothom who claimed his second top-twenty finish of the season finishing in 20th at 220 (73-74-73). Rounding out the Razorback finishers was freshman Kyle Vance tied for 39th at 227 (76-75-76), sophomore Beau Galyean tied for 42nd at 228 (76-71-81), junior Ryan Blagg tied for 57th at 233 (76-78-79) and redshirt freshman Adam Wing tied for 64th at 238 (76-85-77).
