Iowa State ended its fall season Oct. 30 with a win at the 15-team Bridgestone Golf Collegiate. The Cyclones were tied for sixth heading into the final round, but moved into the top spot with a final-round 3-under 285 to finish at 6-over 582, five shots clear of runner-up North Carolina State.

The tournament was shortened to 36 holes due to inclement weather during the first day. 

The victory was the Cyclones’ first since winning the 2007 Gene Miranda Falcon Invitational, ending a streak of 50 tournament starts (with six or more teams) without a win. The Cyclones, under second-year head coach Andrew Tank, finished fourth or better in its last four starts.

“The steady improvement we’ve made and being in contention in all of these tournaments will help us,” Tank said. “We all wanted to win so bad and put an exclamation point on the fall season. I am very proud of this team. This will be something I will cherish for a long time.”

North Carolina State’s Albin Choi posted rounds of 70-69 for a 5-under 139 total to win by two shots over Matt Thompson of Michigan. The victory is the sophomore’s third career title and first this year.
