NMSU men's golf wins Herb Wimberly

The New Mexico State men’s golf team led from start to finish at the 2013 Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate, winning their home tournament on Tuesday by six strokes over second place Colorado State.

The Aggies finished with a total-team score of 6-over-par 858 (283-289-286) and on top of the 17-team field. It was the first win for NM State at its home tournament since 2008.

“Today was a fight all the way through but it goes to show that it still takes four scores,” head coach Mike Dirks said. “This was a total team victory for us. We have to play together and that is what happened at this tournament.”

Junior Brett Walker brought home the individual title for the Aggies after shooting a 6-under 65 during the final round on Tuesday, tying him for the low round of the tournament. Walker finished with a total score of 6-under-par 207 (70-72-65), two shots ahead of second place Ben Krueger of Northern Colorado, en route to his first-career victory at NM State.

“Winning my first collegiate golf tournament is very special to me because it has been something I have dreamed about my entire life,” Walker said. “Playing at our home course helped me relax and I was able to go out and have a good final round. I think this win as a team gives us the confidence we needed to continue to play good team golf for the rest of the year.”

Walker, whose previous best finish as an Aggie was during last year’s Herb Wimberly where he finished in a tie for 12th, used his career-low round of 65 to go from two shots back of Kreuger at the start of the day, to two shots ahead at the conclusion of the tournament.

“Brett played unbelievable golf on a very tough golf course today,” Dirks said. “The other thing that made this special was that as a team we were trying to win a golf tournament and Brett really played outstanding, winning his first collegiate golf tournament and helping his team win their first tournament of the season.”

Also aiding the NM State win was a 12th-place finish by junior Kenneth Fadke II who carded a total score of 3-over-par 216 (70-74-72). Fadke and Walker both helped their cause by shooting a good round during the first round of the tournament. Both were one shot back of the lead after round one with a 1-under 70.

The champion Aggie team also included freshman Luis Medina who finished with a 10-over 223 (72-76-75) and in a tie for 36th place, junior Pat Beyhan who led NM State after two rounds and finished in a tie for 42nd with an 11-over 224 (71-70-83) and senior Willy Hogan who ended the tournament with a total score of 16-over 229 (82-73-74) and in a tie for 67th place.

NM State also led the golfers playing as individuals as freshman Travis Benson topped the list with a 16th place finish at 5-over-par 218 (72-73-73).

Among other individual players for the NM State: sophomore Joey Martinez finished at 14-over 227 (76-72-79) and in a tie for 56th, senior Zach Adams had a total 21-over 234 (75-77-82) and ended up in tie for 77th place, freshman David Wilson finished at 22-over 235 (80-80-75) and in a tie for 82nd and sophomore Taylor Mihok finished in a tie for 90th place with a 27-over 240 (83-74-83).

The Aggies have little time to celebrate as they have less than a week to prepare for a trip south to El Paso, Texas to participate in the Price’s “Give ‘Em Five” UTEP Collegiate Invitational which will run from Friday, Oct. 25, through Saturday, Oct. 26, at the Butterfield Trails Golf Course.
