ALLENDALE, Mich. - Southeastern’s Marcos Sevilla Suarez finished his tournament with a 76 in the final round to card a 54-hole score of 225 and finish tied for 38th at the NCAA National Championship in Allendale, Mich., at the 7,034-yard par 71 Meadows Golf Course.
Sevilla entered the final round tied for 22nd and opened the final 18 holes with seven-straight pars before turning in a bogey eight.
He would par the ninth hole and finish the front nine with a one-over-par 37.
Sevilla would par six of the final nine holes as well, but was stung by the double-bogey bug on the par four 11th hole, and also added bogeys on 13 and 18 to finish four over on the back nine and card a five-over-par 76 on the round.
His finish becomes the highest finish at the National Championship by a Great American Conference competitor, passing Southwestern Oklahoma State’s Wouter MyBurgh who finished tied for 44th in last year’s tournament.
The NCAA Division II National Championship featured 108 individual competitors.
