LAFAYETTE, La. – Team Canada Development Squad member Tyler Saunders fired a final-round 69 at the Louisiana Classics on Tuesday to finish runner-up at 7-under par.
Saunders, 19, totalled 13 birdies coupled with a second-round eagle at Oakbourne Country Club en route to his second top-three performance in as many weeks — the 6’6 Sturgeon County, Alta., native earned co-medalist honours at the Mobile Sports Authority last week in Moble, Ala.
The Texas State freshman shared a sense of boosted confidence following his impressive performance these past couple weeks.
“I felt like last week was just the start of something,” Saunders said. “I think I just now need to get my short game really good, but I feel like I’m swinging it really well.”
As a team, the Texas State Bobcats finished in second place behind champion University of Illinois. Saunders and the Bobcats have a week off before teeing-it-up again at the Border Olympics in Laredo, Tex.
