UCLA put the finishing touches on a wire-to-wire victory Sunday at the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational, finishing six shots clear of Arizona.

The Bruins, ranked No. 2 by Golfweek, shot 20-over 884 at the University of Texas Golf Club in Austin, Texas, for their first victory of the 2009-10 season. UCLA finished second in all four tournaments played in the fall.

No. 8 Arizona, which shot a tournament-low 285 in Round 2, was second at 26-over 890. Texas schools claimed the next three spots; Texas A&M finished third at 33-over 897, TCU fourth at 901 and host Texas fifth at 907.

Texas A&M junior Sarah Zwartynski won the individual title, shooting 3-under 213 to finish six-shots better than Vanderbilt sophomore Marina Alex. UCLA’s Brianna Do and Stephanie Kono tied for third at 220. Kono held a share of the lead with Zwartynski after Round 2, but fell off the pace after a final-round 78.

Four of UCLA’s five players finished inside the top 10, with senior Sydnee Michaels tying for fifth and freshman Tiffany Lua tying for 10th.

Texas A&M’s Julia Boland, who has won three times this season, also had a share of fifth.
