Vanderbilt won the tournament at 1-under-par, just one stroke ahead of Florida . 

Senior Gavin Hall shot a 74 on the final day to finish the tournament tied for No. 14, while junior Doug Ghim recorded a 72 and finished at No. 27.

Other Longhorn participants include junior Scottie Scheffler and sophomores Steven Chervony and Taylor Funk — the trio finished No. 45, tied at 48 and tied at 69, respectively. Chervony shot a final-round 79 and Funk recorded a 74. 

Texas has a few weeks off before its next tournament appearance. The team will compete at The Golf Club of Georgia Collegiate on Oct. 21-23.
