FRESNO, Calif. -- After three days of competition at the Warrior Wave Intercollegiate, the Bulldogs finished in 8th place out of 16 teams. The Fresno State men's golf team finished 14th over par and shot 878 (292-289-293).

The three-day tournament is held on the par-72, 7,223-yard Makai Golf Course at the Princeville Golf Course.

Baylor shot 18 under par (287-280-279--846) and took the tournament title. Albin Choi from North Carolina State took the individual title and finished ten under par (69-68-69--206).

"To beat some of these other teams you have to be sharp, and we just aren't as sharp as we will have to be in the spring to qualify for the NCAA tournaments," head coach Mike Watney said.

Bulldog Nate Jessup shot three under par and finished in a tie for 18th place. Jessup made a total of 12 birdies throughout the three-day tournament. This was the third top 20 finish performed by Jessup, including one top 10 finish.

"We had a very good round today from Nate," Watney said.

On hole five through 13 Troix Tonkham shot even par and completed the tournament six over par (76-71-75--222). Tonkham finished in a tie for 35th place.

Jack Mulroy shot seven over par and finished in a tie for 45th place (77-72-74--223). "They are good guys with good attitudes and they are hard workers," Watney said. "We will just get back to work to prepare for the spring."

The Warrior Wave Intercollegiate concluded the Bulldog's fall season. The Fresno State men's golf team tees off its spring season on Feb. 11, 2013 at the Farms Collegiate Invitational in San Diego, Calif.
