ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Zach Burch rose 17 spots in the final round of the RJGA Invitational to help the Texas A&M University-Commerce men's golf team finish fifth among 16 teams at the UNM Championship Course.

Burch (Lubbock - Cooper) was in tied for 31st place after day one. He shot a one-over par, 73, on Tuesday to finish tied for 14th. Burch's teammate, Nathan McCulloch (Edinburgh, Scotland) ends tournament in a four-way tie for 10th place with a combined score of 220. McCulloch shot a 77 on Tuesday.

"The conditions were tough to start the day today," said first-year coach Ryan Hand. "A fourth place finish was not the goal, however we have identified what we need to do to be a better golf team."

Colorado State - Pueblo ran away with the team title, shooting seven-under par, 857, as a team and winning by 26 strokes over Midwestern State.

The Thunderwolves' Matt Millar and Colorado Christian's Adam Duncan entered the day in tie for first place. Millar edged out Duncan by one stroke on Tuesday to win the individual title with a score of 210.

Junior transfer Kittiphong Phaithuncharoensuk (Phuket, Thailand) finished tied for 22nd with a score of 223 over the three rounds, shooting an 80 in the third round. Tripp Wallace (Lubbock - Frenship) had a top-40 finish with a score of 229 (77-73-79).

Chance Mulligan (Dallas - Bishop Dunne) rounded out the Lions group with a 233, carding 80 on Tuesday.

"We will use the next week and a half to prepare for the regional preview. Congratulations to Nathan on a top 10 finish," added Hand.
