EL PASO, Texas-On a strange final day that included part of the second round early this morning, the ORU men's golf team finished with a 292 for each of the second and third rounds, claiming eighth overall at the Price's Give 'Em Five Invitational, hosted by UTEP.

The Golden Eagles (296-292-292--880) were edged out at the last minute by Weber State, who finished at 879. Idaho shot -8 (280) on Saturday to win the event with a three-round score of 851.

Scott Newell used a pair of eagles on Friday, while Jake Spencer used three even-keel rounds with just one double-bogey in the tournament, as the pair tied for 24th overall at 220, leading the way for ORU.

Trevor McInroe overcame a first-round 76 and finished one shot back at 221 in a tie for 27th. Shannon Allen was one shot back of McInroe as the top four finished in a clump, tying for 33rd at 222.

Spencer Sheets was the fifth finisher, after an 81 in the first round, but recovered to shoot even-par 72 in the third round, shooting 230 for the tournament, finishing tied for 62nd.

Price's Give 'Em Five Invitational was the final test during the fall season for ORU. The Golden Eagles will be back in action on February 11 as they travel to St. George Utah for the Southern Utah Pat Hicks Thunderbird Invitational.
