State’s Pichaikool Finishes Top 10 At Carmel Cup 

Mississippi State concluded its final round of the 2019 Carmel Cup on Sunday as three Bulldogs finished the weekend inside the top 20 ignited by senior Peng Pichaikool who earned individualist honors finishing in a three-way tie for eighth at the Pebble Beach Golf Links.
The final round was highlighted by solid performances from seniors Garrett Johnson and Pichaikool who
shot four-under and three-under, respectively.

With an eighth place finish at Pebble Beach this weekend, Pichaikool has carded back-to-back top-10 finishes. He finished seventh at last year's event.

Johnson's final round 68 also was his best performance on the weekend, which placed him three-under and in 16th place. He has finished in the top 16 at the 2018 and 2019 Carmel Cups.
Freshman Hunter Logan fired in a four-under-68, his best round of the tournament, putting him one-under for the weekend. He vaulted up nine spots on the leaderboard during the final day and landed in a three-way tie for 20th place.
"I am proud of our fight today. We started off slow on the front but were able to battle on our back nine to post a solid round. Peng, Garrett, and Hunter did a nice job of carrying us today and giving us some big rounds,"  head Coach Dusty Smith said. "We are far from where we need to be and we need to make sure we learn from this week going forward."
The Bulldogs finished the weekend tied for sixth with Oklahoma State at three-over and three strokes back from TCU.
Junior Austin Fulton started his day with birdies on four and five, but ended the day at three over. He shot a 225 total on the weekend.
Freshman William Wann started the final round with birdies on holes two and four en route to a 241 total on the weekend.

Stunning Oklahoma, Texas Tech took home the team title shooting 35-under for the weekend. The Red Raiders shot 16-under as a team on the final day, and Sandy Scott finished atop the player leaderboard at 14-under.
"It is important that we as a team take ownership of this week and continue to grow and strive for greatness in all we do. This was the first step of our year-long journey. We have about 20 days to get ready for our next event, and we look forward to the preparation and the opportunity to get better each day," Smith said.

Mississippi State will continue its fall season with the second of its five tournaments when the Bulldogs travel to compete in the Trinity Forest Invitational from September 22-24 in Dallas, Texas.
