Royal Dublin’s Max Kennedy fired himself to a career-best finish to lead the University of Louisville men’s golf team at the Aggie Invitational at the Traditions Golf Club in College Station, Texas. The Cardinals closed the regular season with their fifth top-sixth finish of the spring by closing the day in sixth versus the 17-team field.

Playing in only his third tournament, Freshman Kennedy fared well over the three days, carding a 4-over 220 (70, 72 &78) to tie for 21st overall.

The Cardinals finished in sixth place at 14-over-par, shooting 292-294-292 for a 878 total during the three-day event. Oklahoma came back to take home tournament honours, while Texas A&M was second and Texas was third. The Cardinals were 4-over-par on Friday and Sunday, and shot 6-over-par on Saturday.
