GOODYEAR, Ariz. – Jared Mactas finished with a career-best seven-under score to par to lead the Elon University men’s golf team to a third place finish at the Loyola Intercollegiate at Palm Valley Golf Club. Elon finished the tournament off strong with a third-round total of 278 (-10).


Mactas led the way for the Phoenix after three rounds shooting a 7-under 209, which ties his career-best 54-hole total. The Phoenix combined to make 20 birdies in the final round, which helped Elon make a late move up the team leaderboard to earn a third-place finish.

Leavitt matched Mactas’ round with a three-under 69 to move up the leaderboard. May and Loeb each carded a two-under 70 on the final 18 holes of the tournament.

William Harwood finished in a tie for 45th individually, turning in a 218 (+2) scorecard after the final round. The freshman played well in his first-career spring tournament, which was highlighted by a season-low round of 69 (-3) on the first day.
