FAIRFAX, Calif. - The San Diego State men's golf team completed the two-day, three-round Alister MacKenzie Invitational in fifth place out of 16 teams on Tuesday. SDSU posted a final-round 291 to move its 54-hole total to 2-under 850. The 19th ranked Aztecs trailed former Mountain West foe, BYU, by six strokes for fourth place at the par-71, 6,759-yard Meadow Club in Fairfax, Calif.

Sophomore Xander Schauffele was SDSU's top finisher for the first time this season, finishing even par-71 on his final 18 holes. Schauffele carded an eagle and three birdies during his final round to finish tied for fifth-place.

Aztec junior Austin Kaiser also had his best showing of the fall, firing off a 1-under 70 on his final round to jump up the leaderboard from a tie for 32nd place to finish tied for 17th place. Kaiser completed competition with an overall score of 2-under 211.

San Diego State's final three golfers went the other way on the individual leaderboard with Riccardo Michelini slipping from 34th to 45th at 4-over 217 and Tom Berry dropping from 38th to 48th at 5-over 218. Cameron Tennant, in his first outing of the fall with SDSU, fell two spots from 73rd to 75th, finishing 16-over 229.

No. 1 California held off all 15 other teams by completing the tournament with an impressive 46-under 806, including a final-round 273. The Bears also claimed the individual crown with Brandon Hagy maintaining his first place position to win by three strokes at 15-under 198.

The Aztecs will get back on the course for their final event of the fall, when they travel to Hawaii to participate in the St. Regis Princeville Warrior-Wave Invitational, Nov. 5-7.
