Rebels Finish 11th at Tavistock Cup

The UNLV Men’s Golf team continued a busy fall schedule with an 11th-place finish in Florida at the Tavistock Collegiate Invitational. The event was played at the prestigious Isleworth Country Club. Two youngsters, a frosh and a soph, led the Rebels, showing the depth of the team and a glimpse into the future.

UNLV freshman Harry Hall (pictured) and sophomore John Oda led the Rebels, both finishing in a tie for 23rd at 6-over 222. Hall shot 3-under during the final round, while Oda was 2-over. Senior AJ McInerney tied for 37th at 9-over after a final-round 1-over, junior Redford Bobbitt tied for 46th at 11-over after a final-round 3-over, and sophomore Shintaro Ban withdrew during the final round. A total of 75 individuals made up the field.

Illinois used a final-round-low 1-under 287 to win the tournament’s team title by four shots at 1-over 865. Arizona State finished second at 5-over, followed by California in third at 14-over. Vanderbilt was fourth at 17-over, while Florida and North Carolina each tied for fifth at 18-over. The Rebels finished the 54-hole tournament at 31-over 895. There were a total of 15 teams competing.

The Tavistock Collegiate was the final tournament of the fall season for UNLV. Oda will compete at the Sun Bowl Western Refining College All-America Golf Classic in El Paso, Texas, Nov. 6-8, before the Rebels will open the spring season in February at the LMU Higgins Memorial Invitational at Reflection Bay in Las Vegas.
