The Longhorn men’s golf team was unable to make a final round jump up the leaderboards Tuesday, as it finished the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational in fourth place.

Tuesday marked the third consecutive day that No. 2 Texas slipped a spot at the conclusion of a round. The Longhorns registered a combined three-day score of 15-over 879 and finished 11 strokes behind first-place California.

Sophomore Jordan Spieth was the only Longhorn golfer to finish the tournament among the top 10 individuals, shooting an even-par mark of 216 to finish fifth overall. Spieth was one of just five golfers to shoot par or better at the event.

Junior Cody Gribble concluded the tournament in a tie for 16th place with a score of 4-over 220, and freshman Brandon Stone was one stroke behind him with a mark of 5-over 221. Rounding out the scoring for Texas were junior Toni Hakula and senior Julio Vegas, who carded scores of 9-over 225 and 12-over 228, respectively.

The Longhorns begin their next tournament Monday at the two-day Stanford Classic at Cypress Point Golf Club.
