PRIMM, Nev. – A 14-shot improvement and school record 277 in the final round was enough to vault the Oral Roberts men's golf team to third at the Jackrabbit Invitational at Primm Valley Tuesday, as the Golden Eagles finished at 860 (292-291-277). No. 26 UNLV ran away with the team title at 804, finishing 60 shots under par and winning by 17 shots over Tennessee (821).

The 277 marks the best round in the ORU record books, topping the 278 at the Diet Pepsi/Shocker Classic April 9, 2001. The 860 for the tournament is tied for the 10th best 54-hole total in school history. Parker Dolezal helped ORU's cause with a career best 67 in the final round.
