FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Utah senior golfer Kyler Dunkle is heading to the final day of the NCAA Golf Championships after his 1-over par score qualified him for the final round and is currently tied for 11th.

He shot a 5-over par round with a score of 77 after the third day. Even though he had four birdies on Sunday, he couldn’t climb back from three double bogeys.

“This is an incredibly difficult golf course!” head coach Garrett Clegg said. “Kyler didn’t have his best today and it seemed like each missed shot penalized him more than just one shot. It was a tough day.  But what he is doing is incredible! I’m so proud of how he has played this week. He will be the first Ute in the modern era to make the cut at the NCAA Championships. He has had a tremendous career for us and tomorrow will be his final round. I’m really excited to be able to walk that final round with him tomorrow at the NCAA Championship individual finals! What a great place to be. Hopefully tomorrow will be a great round of golf!”

Dunkle reached the final round by being one of the top nine golfers to not reach the final with his team.

The final round will be on Monday and Dunkle will tee off at 11:17 a.m.
