The University of Colorado men’s golf squad recorded its first top-5 team finish in 18 months on Tuesday as the Buffs placed third out of 23 schools at the Wyoming Cowboy Classic in Chandler, Ariz.

Two of CU’s seniors from Europe — Victor Bjorlow (Spain) and Daniel O’Loughlin (England) — notched top-10 individual finishes out of the 120-man field, with Bjorlow tying for fifth and O’Loughlin sharing seventh place.

It’s the first top-10 individual showings by CU players this year, with Bjorlow recording his best college finish in two years and O’Loughlin his best since October 2019.

Bjorlow went 68-68-69 for an 11-under-par total of 205, which left him three strokes behind champion Barclay Brown of Stanford, who closed with a 65. O’Loughlin checked in at 208 after scores of 67-73-68.

As a team, the Buffs ended up with a 24-under-par total for three rounds, nine shots behind champion San Diego State and three back of runner-up TCU. Northern Colorado tied for 18th place (22 over par), while Air Force was 23rd (53 over par).

Tyler Severin of Wyoming, a Coloradan who grew up in Johnstown, just missed a top-10 finish, placing 11th at 210 (68-73-69).
