Creighton Golf

The Creighton men’s golf team opened its spring 2020 season with a tie for 10th place at the Pizza Hut-Pat Hicks Thunderbird Invitational on Tuesday in St. George, Utah.

The Bluejays fired a 306 on Monday, followed by a 305 on Tuesday, for a 611 aggregate. CU finished 38 shots behind Utah State, which won the event with a 5-under 573 that was three shots better than tourney host Southern Utah. The event featured 12 teams on the Sunbrook Golf Course that measured just over 6,900 yards and was a par-72 layout.

Creighton returns to the course on March 9-10 at the Orlando Invitational at Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla.
