NCAA San Antonio Regional
Briggs Ranch Golf Course San Antonio, Texas
SAN ANTONIO -- Northwestern concluded its 2013-14 season Saturday in the final round of the NCAA San Antonio Regional hosted at Briggs Ranch Golf Club.
The Wildcats, who began the day in 13th position among the 13-team field, remained in that spot with a 26-over 314, which gave NU a 54-hole final total of 52-over 916 (299-303-314).
NU's season included a pair of team victories at its own Windon Memorial Classic and at Duke's Rod Myers Invitational in the fall as well as several individual highlights along the way.
On Saturday, senior Jack Perry (Santa Barbara, Calif./Santa Barbara) led the way when he fired a 3-over 75 in the final round of his Northwestern career. Going out, Perry had a bogey-birdie-bogey stretch from Nos. 13 to 15, then made the turn and carded seven pars and two bogeys. He ended the Regional in 35th place at 6-over 222 (70-77-75).
Perry, the 2013 Les Bolstad Award winner for having the lowest full season stroke average among Big Ten players, concludes his time in Evanston with a 72.78 career stroke average, which is good for third in the history of the program behind Luke Donald and Eric Chun.
Sophomore Andrew Whalen (Ephrata, Wash./Ephrata Senior) was even through his first five holes Saturday before enduring a six-over stretch across six holes from Nos. 15 around to 2. He played the final seven holes in 1-over par with two bogeys and a birdie at the par-5 seventh to give him a final-round 7-over 79 and a 54-hole total of 9-over 225 (72-74-79) to place him 52nd in the field.
Junior Matthew Negri (El Cajon, Calif./Grossmont) had an early birdie at the par-5 13th hole and turned in 2-over 38, but two double bogeys and four bogeys on the front side led to a 9-over 81. Negri finished the Regional in 70th position at 19-over 235 (80-74-81).
Sophomore Josh Jamieson (St. Andrews, Scotland/High School of Dundee) remained in search of his first birdie of the Regional Saturday, making three bogeys and six pars in his opening nine. After turning at 3-over 39, Jamieson found a double bogey at the par-3 third. He made three bogeys in his final four holes, but did get that birdie at the 562-yard par-5 seventh hole to end up at 8-over 80 on the day and 21-over 237 (79-78-80) for the tournament, good for 73rd place.
Senior John Callahan (Hinsdale, Ill./Benet Academy) wrapped up his Northwestern career with an 8-over 80 in his final round. Callahan - the medalist of the 2012 Windon Memorial Classic - competed in three tournaments this season including two as a member of the team lineup. He went out Saturday in 4-over 40 after a double bogey at No. 18, then played better as he made the turn to be at 5-over with three holes to play. Those three holes, though, were all bogeys coming in to leave him 75th in the field at 25-over 241 (78-83-80).
