FULLERTON, Calif. -
The Broncos swept the winner's circle Tuesday at the Bill Cullum Invitational at Wood Ranch Golf Club, claiming the team title by eight strokes at -21 (294-277-271=843) while Brian Humphreys
picked up his fourth-career win with a final-round 66, bringing his total score to -11 (72-67-66).
Humphreys carded six birdies in the final round and 16 in the tournament to win by three strokes over UC Santa Barbara's Zach Smith.
Humphreys is excited with this win moving forward, "Obviously, this was an exciting week for us. After our last event in Dallas, it would have been easy for us to feel defeated, but everybody showed what they were capable of this week. This win was huge for me individually, as well as the team, and I think it tells us that we are doing the right things and that we should be confident in what we can accomplish going forward."
The win is Humphreys' first since the 2017 Mountain West Championships. The team title is the third for the Broncos under head coach Dan Potter
, and first since winning the Del Walker Intercollegiate from Feb. 27-28, 2017.
Head coach Dan Potter
was thrilled with the win, "This is an awesome feeling. Our guys were so solid down the stretch. The conditions were getting tough at the end but all the guys just kept hitting great shots. I was thoroughly impressed. It feels great to win, but to see them execute the way they did when it counted made it that much better."
Junior Michael Rizzo
finished the tournament with his first top-10 finish of the season with a tie for 10th (-2, 76-67-71=214). Sophomore Skyler Eubank
