PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Northwestern fired its best score of the 2013 U.S Intercollegiate Saturday in the final round of the tournament hosted at the Stanford Golf Course, moving up two spots in the standings to finish seventh overall among the 17-team field.
NU turned in a 1-over 281 in the final round, the sixth-best total of the day, to jump from a tie for ninth place into seventh at 12-over 852 (284-287-281). The Wildcats were three strokes behind sixth-place USC and five shots behind fifth-place UC Davis. The host and 10th-ranked Cardinal won the event over 12th-ranked TCU.
Junior Jack Perry (Santa Barbara, Calif./Santa Barbara), who fired his first sub 70 total of the season Friday, matched that performance again Saturday with a 1-under 69 in the final round to earn his third top-10 finish of the season (9th). Perry made 10-straight pars to begin his day before back-to-back bogeys at Nos. 11 and 12 sent his round in the wrong direction. He immediately recovered with a birdie at No. 13 before two more at Nos. 15 and 16 to finish in red numbers for the day and for the tournament at 1-under 209 (71-69-69).
Senior Nick Losole (Scottsdale, Ariz./Scottsdale Notre Dame), who struggled through the first two rounds of the tournament, turned in NU's best score with a 2-under 68 on Saturday. Through 16 holes he had hit every green in regulation and made four birdies and one three-putt bogey.
Losole made birdie at his very first hole of the day to aid in a 1-under 34 front nine, then made back-to-back birdies at Nos. 15 and 16 -- just as Perry did -- to find himself 3-under. He would give one stroke back on his 54th hole, which left him at 34th overall in the field with a 4-over 214 (74-72-68).
Freshman Josh Jamieson (St. Andrews, Scotland/High School of Dundee) went out in 1-under par in his opening nine Saturday, making birdie at the ninth for an outbound 34. He began the backside with two bogeys, however, which contributed to four total on that side and a final round 2-over 72. Jamieson finished 48th in the field with a 6-over 216 (70-74-72).
Sophomore Matthew Negri (El Cajon, Calif./Grossmont) was 1-under par through eight holes, helped by an 8-iron to four feet for birdie at No. 5. A double bogey at No. 9, though, led to him turning at 1-over par. He made another bogey at No. 10 before stabilizing for eight straight pars to finish a final round 2-over 72, which placed him 62nd overall at 10-over 220 (72-76-72).
Freshman Andrew Whalen (Ephrata, Wash./Ephrata Senior) was 7-over par through six holes Saturday and ended his tournament with an 8-over 78. Whalen placed 73rd at 11-over 221 (71-72-78).
Competing as individuals not in the team lineup for Northwestern, sophomore Bennett Lavin (Deerfield, Ill./Deerfield) placed 62nd at 10-over 220 (71-73-76), redshirt freshman Scott Smith was 73rd at 11-over 221 (78-72-71) and junior John Callahan (Hinsdale, Ill./Benet Academy) was 95th at 27-over 237 (77-85-75).
Northwestern is back in action April 15-16 in a home tournament when it hosts the Kemper Sports Intercollegiate at The Glen Club in Glenview, Ill.
