Feb. 19, 2013
INDUSTRY, Calif. - Long Beach State recorded a 289 in Tuesday's final round of the Folino Invitational presented by the Automobile Club of Southern California to capture the team title for the second year in a row at the Industry Hills Golf Club.
Sitting in second-place after Monday's second round, LBSU overcame a six-shot lead from tournament leader UC Irvine as the 49ers finished with a 54-hole total of 8-over par 872. The Anteaters finished four shots behind the 49ers at 12-over.
Loyola Marymount placed third at 31-over, while tournament host Cal State Fullerton (+33) finished in fourth and Sacramento State (+42) in fifth.
This is the first tournament victory this year for the 49ers, since winning the Anteater Invitational last season. LBSU collected a program record five tournament wins last season.
Freshman Daniel Chian led the way for LBSU, tying for fourth shooting a final round 75 to finish with an even-216.
Chian started the morning on the par-5 No. 10 where he would par the first two holes to stay even. The Covina native would go 2-over after bogeying Nos. 12 and 13 and par the next three holes. Chian collected his first birdie of the day on the 17th to finish the back-nine at 1-over. After making the turn to the front, Chian recorded two consecutive birdies on Nos. 1 and 2 and par the remaining holes for a bogey-free front-nine.
Senior Philip Chian tied for 12th after carding a 76 to finish at 6-over and sophomore JJ Holen (+11) recorded his best round of the tournament with a 2-under 70 to tie for 17th.
Travis Russell of UC Irvine won individual medalist honors on the third hole after going into a three-way playoff with Tyler Torano of Loyola Marymount and Ryan Williams of Sacramento State.
LBSU returns to action next week, hosting the 17th Del Walker Intercollegiate Golf Classic, Feb. 25-26, at Virginia Country Club in Long Beach.
