Millard concludes collegiate career
Blue Raider ties for 32nd at NCAA ChampionshipsJune 2, 2011 · Athletic Communications
"I couldn't be happier with the way Jason competed and fought on this difficult golf course the last three days," Blue Raider head coach Whit Turnbow said. "He represented the university and himself very well. He showed he can compete with the very best nationally, not only during this tournament, but throughout his career. I am very proud of all his accomplishments along the way."
Millard, competing as an individual in the field, began the day with a 1-over front nine. He parred holes two through eight after beginning the day with a double bogey on No. 1, a par 5, 542-yard challenge. Before making the turn, he birdied No. 9 with a four on the par 5, 623-yard hole, the longest on the course.
His back nine featured one birdie, on the par 3, 215-yard No. 15, which came four holes after he tallied a bogey on No. 11. Entering the final two holes at 1-over on the day, Millard double bogeyed No. 17 before closing with a par to finish the round.
The Murfreesboro, Tenn., native was competing in his fourth NCAA Championship competition, the most of any individual in school history. LSU's John Peterson won the individual title, posting a 5-under 211 for a one-stroke victory over UCLA's Patrick Cantlay. Only seven players finished under par through the three rounds on the par 72, 7,416-yard layout.
Millard, one of just six players to compete as an individual and not be a part of a team, shared high honors amongst the group with Wake Forest's Lee Bedford.
