Frittelli, Hudson land top-10 finishes at Big 12 Championship
April 25, 2010
TRINITY, Texas -- Texas junior Bobby Hudson and sophomore Dylan Frittelli each carded a 3-over 75 and secured top-10 individual finishes Sunday in the final round of the 2010 Big 12 Championships at Whispering Pines Golf Club.
The Longhorns shot a 7-over 295 in the final round and took third place overall with a 4-under 1,148 for the tournament. Oklahoma State took the team title at 19-under par, and Texas A&M placed second at 6-under par. Texas Tech placed fourth at even-par, and Kansas State rounded out the top-five at 11-over par. Texas Tech's Chris Ward led from start-to-finish and secured medalist honors at 9-under par.
Hudson shot a three-over 75 and finished in third place overall at 6-under par to nail down his third top-five finish of the spring and his fifth top-10 showing in his last seven events. It marked a career-best showing for the Memphis native at the Big 12 Championship.
Frittelli tied for seventh place at even-par for the tournament with his 3-over 75 on Sunday, as he landed his eighth top-10 finish in 11 events this season. Senior Lance Lopez fired a 1-over 73 behind four birdies and an eagle. Lopez tied for 17th place at 5-over par. Freshman Cody Gribble rebounded from a 79 on Saturday to post a 1-over 73 on Sunday with birdies at the second, ninth, 11th and 12th holes. Gribble tied for 19th place at 5-over par.
Senior Charlie Holland lowered his third-round score by two strokes and shot a 2-over 74 in the final round. Holland placed 26th overall at 7-over par.
On Bobby Hudson's top-five finish: I thought Bobby played fantastic golf. He came out and tied the course record with a 64 in the first round. He had a chance to contend for the title, but it just didn't happen today. He didn't get the putts to fall or get the chips as close as we wanted them. But, he hit the ball well all week.
