SIMPSONVILLE, Ky. – Notre Dame senior men’s golfer Miguel Delgado wrapped his collegiate career on Wednesday at the University of Louisville Golf Club. Delgado carded a 69 (-2) over the final round of the NCAA Louisville Regional, climbing seven spots in the standings to finish in 21st place with a 214 (+1).
Delgado ends the year with a 71.4 strokes per round average, which is the second lowest in program history (minimum of 16 rounds). Max Scodro holds the top mark with a 71.3 in the 2011-12 season.
Furthermore, Delgado ends his time at Notre Dame with a 73.2 career average, which ranks as the fourth lowest all-time.
“An excellent round of golf today and it was close to being very low, but that’s golf,” Notre Dame head coach John Handrigan stated. “A 69 on a course with that level of difficulty is why Miguel has proven to be a top player in the country. It was an absolute pleasure competing alongside Miguel this week. A great representation of Notre Dame golf.”
Delgado started the third and final round very strong, carding a par-birdie-birdie-par over the first four holes. The senior did tally a bogey on the par-four fifth before settling in with four straight pars to go one-under on the front-nine.
Next, Delgado suffered from back-to-back bogeys before immediately bouncing back with a birdie on the par-three 12th. Delgado then finished strong, notching a birdie-birdie-par over the final three holes.
His 214 (+1) tournament score marked the fourth lowest individual score in a championship event in program history.
“It’s been several years since a player at Notre Dame performed at this elite level and I’m proud of what Miguel has accomplished,” Handrigan added. “He’s ready to take that next step into professional golf.”
