Dominant Daum leads golf team to seventh place

By Doug Fitzgerald published April 20, 2004

Trent Daum shot a tournament-best 4-under par 67 Tuesday to lead the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs into a tie for seventh at the Northwest Region Spring Head-to-Head tournament at Firethorn Country Club in Lincoln, Neb.

Daumâ€TMs round was the best shot by any golfer during the three-round event, helping the freshman from Denver climb from 23rd to sixth individually. It also helped the Mountain Lions to a team score of 305, good enough to climb from ninth after two rounds to seventh on Tuesday.

Daum's round also helped assure CU-Colorado Springs of a spot in the NCAA Super Regional on May 1-3 in Bellingham, Wash. The Mountain Lions finished sixth in the region based on the scores from various tournaments this season.

J.P. Wertz shot a 76 Tiesday, but each of the Mountain Lionsâ€TM other three golfers shot 80 or higher - scores that magnified the imprtance of Daum's round.

CU-Colorado Springs passed Colorado State-Pueblo and moved even with Regis, both of which the Mountain Lions trailed after Mondayâ€TMs first two rounds.

St. Cloud State won the tournament with a three-round score of 899. North Dakota State finished second, one stroke back.
