UNT golfer makes it to the national finals

Rodolfo Cazaubon, a senior who has put together a solid career at UNT, will cap his time with the Mean Green in the final rounds of the national tournament.

Cazaubon shot a 68 in the final round the Pullman Regional and finished in a tie for sixth place at 7-under par 209.

Cazaubon had no room for error after UNT plummeted down the team standings in the 14-team event. Only five teams advance. UNT finished 12th.

That left one spot for the top individual not on one of the teams that finished in the top five.

Cazaubon grabbed that lone slot.

It’s a terrific accomplishment for Cazaubon and a milestone for the program.

UNT thought it had a chance to make it out of the regional as a team and didn’t make it.

Sending Cazaubon, a four-time All-Sun Belt pick who has helped elevate the program, isn’t a bad consolation prize.
