PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. --- The Tennessee State men’s golf team closed out the season with a fourth place finish at the 31st PGA Minority Collegiate Championships. The Tigers carded a 20-over, 308, during the final round to conclude play at 63-over, 927.

Rosario Falzone led the Tigers in scoring on Sunday with a 2-over, 74, finishing one stroke ahead of Todd McGill at 3-over, 75. Drew Owens posted a countable 7-over, 79, while Jermey Fultz and Kody Rendleman entered the clubhouse with matching 80’s.

Falzone opened the day with bogeys on three of the first five holes before cutting his score to 1-over with birdies on back-to-back holes. The sophomore gave a stroke back to move to 2-over, but drained a 15 foot putt on the par-3, 11th, to drop to 1-over.
