Jackson pushes UCO to RCB Bank Broncho Invitational title at Gaillardia

OKLAHOMA CITY (March 24) – Freshman Wesley Jackson’s even-par back nine sparked Central Oklahoma to a five-shot win in the Broncho Invitational sponsored by RCB Bank at Gaillardia Country Club here Tuesday.

The Bronchos had a final-round 310 in windy conditions on the rugged 7,255-yard, par-72 layout to finish with a 596 total in the two-day, 36-hole event.  Central Missouri was second at 601, followed by Missouri Southern (605), Southwestern Oklahoma (607) and Southern Nazarene (609).
 
Jackson finished with a 75 to lead UCO, which picked up its fifth win in eight tournaments this year.  The Bronchos also got a 77 from Russ Purser, 78 from Logan Gray, 80 from Alexander Hughes and 81 from Eric Kline.
 
"The golf course won today," head coach Pat Bates said.  "It was really tough out there with some of the pin placements and the wind, but we came out with a good win.  Welsey had a great back nine for us when we really needed it."
 
Jackson made the turn at three-over 39, but rebounded strong on the final nine.  The rookie offset two bogeys with birdies on the par-4 11th and 16th holes before making consecutive pars on the last two holes to finish with his even-par 36.
 
Purser ended up tied for second in the individual standings with a 145 total after his closing 77.  He made the turn at two-over 38 and birdied No. 18 to come in with a 39.
 
Southern Nazarene shot the lowest round of the day in the final round and vaulted into a tie for fifth place to close out the tournament.

SNU shot a 16-over par 304 on the final day and lowered its score by one stroke off of day one. Michael Hearne led the way for the Storm as he fired a 2-over 74 on the 7,255-yard Gailardia Country Club Course. Hearne was just four strokes back of Southwestern Oklahoma State’s Stefan Idstam who fired a 66 on the first day and held on with a 77 in the final round to capture the individual title.
