Euan Walker's top-20 finish at Hawaii venue

Euan Walker from Troon, a final-year student at the University of Missouri, achieved a top-20 finish in a field of 111 players at the Warrior Princeville Makai Invitational tournament at Makai Golf Club, Hawaii on Tuesday.
Walker, pictured right, had rounds of 73, 70 and 72 for a one-under-par total of 215 over a long par-72 course of 7,223yd. Tied 18th, the Scot finished 12 behind the winner, Braden Thornberry (Mississippi) who scored 71, 65 and 67 for 13-under 203 and a three-stroke victory.
Missouri team-mate Rory Franssen, a freshman from Inverness, had ever-improving scores of 75, 72 and 70 for a one-over total of 217 and a T26 finish.
Top Brit in the big field was George Gardiner (San Diego), pictured left, a 6ft 3in second-year student from Reading, who scored 71-70-71 for four-under 212 and a 13th final placing.
 Jake Storey (Georgia Southern), a third-year man from Alnwick, finished T33 on 219 with rounds of 71, 74 and 74.
Thornberry's victory was a big factor in Mississippi University (831) winning the team title ahead of Sam Houston State (853) and Missouri (860), who were lying second with 18 holes to go.
Arizona State (862) finished fourth.
Georgia Southern (872) came 11th and San Diego (882) 13th in a field of 19 teams.
