FRESNO, Calif. – The Kansas State men’s golf team finished in 12th place at the 2013 Fresno State Lexus Classic as the Wildcats carded a 20-over 1100 at the par-72, 6,570-yard Belmont Country Club on Tuesday. For the second event in a row, senior Curtis Yonke led the Wildcats as he tied for 17th place after recording a 2-under 214.

“It was not a great day for us,” said head coach Tim Norris. “I think our guys might have tried a little too hard and that probably hurt us a little bit. It was not the finish that we wanted but we just have to stick with the process and hope we get better.”

Daniel Wood carded a 3-over 219 to tie for 35th place. Kyle Weldon recorded an 8-over 224 to finish in a tie for 63rd, while David Klaudt tallied a 9-over 225 to tie for 68th place. Rounding out the scoring for K-State was Ben Juffer and Matt Green. The duo finished in a tie for 81st and 93rd, respectively.

The NCAA’s top team, California, breezed to the team title as the Golden Bears fired a 43-under 1037, besting second-place finisher Fresno State by 37 strokes. Cal’s Michael Kim finished atop the leaderboard as he carded a 16-under 200.

K-State will be back in action in two weeks as the Wildcats return to Goodyear, Ariz., to compete in the 2013 Desert Shootout, March 25-27, at the par-72, 7,015-yard Palm Valley Golf Club.
