Mississippi State sophomore golfer Ford Clegg shot a career-low 5-under 66 in the Bulldogs' final round Tuesday at the Fighting Irish Classic hosted by Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana.
Clegg finished in a tie for seventh place on the leaderboard and helped MSU to a ninth-place finish with a team score of 2-over 286.
"Ford did a great job of giving us a huge round today when we truly needed it," head coach Dusty Smith said in a release from MSU Athletics. "We are not where we need to be yet, but today we became more of a team. We need to take these next few weeks to continue to get better. All you can do is get back up and keep at it."
The team will next compete in the TVA Community Credit Union Invitational from Oct. 21-22 in Killen, Alabama.
