  • RANCHO SANTA FE, Calif.- The young Boilermakers were unable to gain any ground at the Callaway Golf Invitational, finishing 15th in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif. Purdue recorded a tournament total of 931 (316-306-309) in the two-day, three-round event.

    Wichita State won the team title with a total score of 853 (280 290 283), while tournament host San Diego finished second with a three-round total of 861 (286-290-285). Wichita State's Dustin Garza captured medalist honors carding a 210 (71-69-70).

    Purdue's David Gersztein was the highest finisher for the Boilermakers, tying for 20th with a 222 (76-75-71), but Gersztein was competing as an individual so his scores did not count toward Purdue's team score. Gersztein's final-round 71 was the lowest round of the tournament for Purdue.
