Westlake Village, Calif. - Long Beach State closed out a third day at the elite Southwestern Invitational, finishing in 14th place at North Ranch Country Club in Westlake Village.

With the second-round uncompleted on Monday, teams resumed that round before completing the third on Tuesday. The Beach had their best round of the tournament stretched over the two days, recording a 296 in the second round, but shot 309 in the third and final round to close the tournament at 55-over par in 14th place. Co-hosts UCLA were the team winners in the 15-team field.

Individually, Long Beach State was led by Andres Gonzalez, who finished round two with a one-under 71 and closed the tournament tied for 24th at 224 (+8). Nick Cantlay also rode a strong second round (70) to finish tied for 39th at 229 (+13), while Patrick Pockels and Hunter Reed rounded out the top four, each shooting 77 in the final round. Pockels closed the tournament at 17-over par (233), Reed was 19-over (235), and Joe Fryer was the final Beach golfer at 239 (+23).
