Maryland men’s golf finished in 13th place in the Puerto Rico Classic, which was played from Feb. 13-15 at the Grand Reserve Country Club.

Maryland had two players stand out during the event: senior Dillon Brown and freshman Florian Huerlimann. Brown notched a total of 12 birdies in the event and collected a final round 67, which gave him a spot in the group of seven golfers that were tied for 37th-place.

In the three-day event, which takes place where the PGA Tour’s Puerto Rico Open will open up in just under a month, Huerlimann impressed as well. He had his best performance as a Terp, finishing in a three-way tie for 57th.

“Florian [Huerlimann] is going to be a stellar player, but he’s young; he has room to grow,” head coach Jason Rodenhaver said per the press release. “But, overall had a great week despite the double bogey he made on the 6th hole during the third round.”

Elsewhere on the team, graduate Chris Tanabe finished in 64th, senior Dhaivat Pandya ended in a five-way tie for 65th and senior Will Koras found himself in a two-way tie for 74th.

Maryland men’s golf will be back in action on March 21.
