Guillermo Pereira at the 2014 Tavistock Collegiate Invitational

ORLANDO, Fla. – Matias Dominguez's 5-over 77 did not count toward Texas Tech's score Sunday at the Tavistock Collegiate Invitational, but he deserves a huge assist for the Red Raiders' 21-under 267.

Dominguez, a senior out of Santiago, Chile, helped convince fellow countryman Guillermo Pereira to pick Texas Tech. Pereira, who took the 18-hole lead at Lake Nona Golf & Country Club with a 9-under 63 Sunday, took his friend's advice and has excelled for head coach Greg Sands.

Pereira, the No. 15 player in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, needed the support of Dominguez, Sands and the rest ...

After all of the talk surrounding Texas' prized underclassmen at the beginning of the fall, the team's seniors acted as the glue that kept the Longhorns together Sunday for a victory at the U.S. Collegiate Championship.

Texas needed every single shot at the Golf Club of Georgia in Alpharetta, Ga., to beat Virginia by one shot. The Longhorns finished 54 holes at 21-under 843.

"It was incredible. Twenty-one under par versus 20 under at the Golf Club of Georgia," Texas head coach John Fields said. "Going into the week, I would have never thought the numbers would ...

ORLANDO, Fla. – Guillermo Pereira stared down his 30-foot putt on Lake Nona Golf & Country Club's 18th green with the odds against him.

A string of mediocre shots landed the Texas Tech rookie with a slim chance at par on his ninth hole of the day – he hit his tee shot right into a bad lie, sent a fat 7-iron short of the green and was forced to flop his third shot onto the putting surface, about 30 feet from the cup. But Pereira collected himself and poured it in.

That was the closest he would come to making ...

Virginia’s Denny McCarthy continues to lead at the U.S. Collegiate Championship after a second-round even-par 72.

McCarthy, who fired an opening-round 63, leads teammate sophomore Derek Bard by two shots at The Golf Club of Georgia heading into Sunday’s final round.

McCarthy was 4 under through his first 12 holes during the second round until he ran into trouble on closing holes 13-18. He played them in 4 over and had double bogeys on Nos. 13 and 15.

The senior is looking for his third collegiate victory and his first of the season.

Arizona State women's golfer Noemi Jimenez carries a bag in honor of Pat Tillman at the 2014 ANNIKA Intercollegiate.

Nothing about Max Rottluff blended in at the Alister Mackenzie Invitational. Not the camouflage bag he carried, or the play he utilized to earn medalist honors at the Meadow Club on Oct. 14

In fact, the bag was designed to do just the opposite. With a military camouflage pattern and a PT42 shield stitched on, the bag symbolizes something much more than Arizona State or college golf. It was made to honor former Sun Devil and fallen veteran Pat Tillman, along with the rest of the country's service men and women.

It's been 26 years since Illinois last swept a four-tournament fall season.

Beginning Sunday at the Tavistock Collegiate Invitational, the top-ranked Illini will go for a fourth victory in four events this fall. While a win at Tavistock would repeat the four-win fall performance of the 1988-89 Illinois squad, a team that included PGA Tour player Steve Stricker and current Illinois head coach Mike Small, the Illini aren't getting caught up in anything other than their golf.

They are trying to win for the sake of winning, not to tie any records.

College golf heavyweights Georgia Tech and Oklahoma State went toe-to-toe at the U.S. Collegiate Championship last year, with the Cowboys having the final say and a one-stroke victory.

This year, the Yellow Jackets will have the chance to exact revenge, as they host the Cowboys and 14 of the country's top teams at The Golf Club of Georgia, Friday through Sunday.

DESTIN, Fla. –– Laura Lindsey hit only five drivers Tuesday morning as a warm-up to a soggy round at Sandestin’s Baytowne Course. With swollen clouds overhead and mush underfoot, it was all she could squeeze in on a crowded, and somewhat chaotic, practice range.

Storms blew over Destin early Tuesday morning, and made the final round of the Golfweek Division III Fall Invitational uncertain. Still, Lindsey’s Texas-Tyler team came with a very detailed game plan. It could make up an 18-shot deficit on Washington-St. Louis with a team score of 300.
