The no. 5 ranked UCLA men's golf team rebounded on Sunday from a tough second round Saturday performance, but it wouldn't be enough as the Bruins finished 5th at the Aggie Invitational in Bryan, TX. The Bruins, who shot under par for the first time in the tournament on Sunday, tied with hosts Texas A&M at 870 (+6) after shooting 287 (-1) on the tourneys final day.

The Bruins were led on the final day by senior Pedro Figueiredo and sophomore Pontus Widegren would end his tournament in 36th, after posting a 74(+2), and Matt Pinizzotto finished his day with a 79(+7) to wind up in 40th.

UCLA posted the 4th-best score of the final round, but it wouldn't be enough as Arkansas shot 282 (-6) to leapfrog their way into 4th and tourney leaders Alabama shot 285 (-3) to keep their stranglehold on the tournament lead and finish first overall at 846 (-18). Kent State, in second, finished with 864 (E), a full 18 strokes behind the Crimson Tide.

The Bruins are back in action next Saturday, April 13th, as they head to Santa Cruz for the Western Intercollegiate.
