Posted: Updated:
SAN ANTONIO, Texas -

Oklahoma City University fired a round-two 295 and won the San Antonio Shootout by one stroke Monday at TPC San Antonio.

The Stars, ranked No. 2 in NAIA men's golf, shot 312-295–607 to edge Oklahoma Christian by one shot and No. 12 Our Lady of the Lake (Texas) by two strokes. Senior Sondre Ronold carded 75-73–148 and tied for first place with Aaron Flores of Our Lady of the Lake.

Ronold, of Stavanger, Norway, was second in par-4 scoring and carded 26 pars en route to earning a share of the individual title.

"I thought today's round wasn't as good as yesterday's, but a win is a win and I'm proud that we pulled it out," OCU coach Kyle Blaser said. "We hit some clutch shots down the stretch, and I'm extremely happy for Sondre. He had a great week and his composure was outstanding."

Teams saw temperatures in the 40s and 50s with steady wind on the par-72, 6,826-yard course.

Senior Michael Palmer, of Johannesburg, South Africa, carded 78-72–150 and tied for fourth. Palmer led the tournament in par-4 scoring and rolled in seven birdies.

James Marchesani, a junior from Rosebud Victoria, Australia, shot 79-74–153 and tied for 10th place. Freshman Anthony Marchesani, of Rosebud, Victoria, Australia, shot 80-76–156 and fellow freshman Issa Abou el Ela finished with 84-76–160 to round out OCU's top-5.

"I'm happy that we are building confidence as a team," Blaser said. "I look forward to us continuing to build on our success."

The Stars will return to action in the Wyndham Invitational on March 4-5 at TPC Four Seasons in Las Colinas, Texas.
