DALLAS, Texas  Oral Roberts freshman Cody Burrows won the individual title and led ORU to fifth overall in the Bob Sitton Invitational at TPC Four Seasons in Las Colinas.

After a brief misstep in round two, ORU rebounded and matched its opening round score with a 292 Thursday to finish the tournament at 890 (292-306-292), fifth out of 17 teams. Long Beach State led from wire to wire and won by 11 shots at 867 (285-288-294).

It was the first career win for Burrows, who has led ORU in four of the six tournaments in his career but had never broken into the top five. Burrows buried a 30-foot putt on the final hole of the day to shoot 70 after earlier rounds of 73-71. His 214 was a career best 54-hole score.

ORU finished in the top 10 as a team for the fourth time this year and the second tournament in a row. Freshman Will Starkey shot a career-best 68 on Thursday, his third round under par in as many tournaments. The 68 is the lowest score by a Golden Eagle this season.
