Scot McNeill rated highly by McNeese State head coach

McNeese State University students Duncan McNeill from Annan and Daniel O'Loughlin from Nottingham featured in the recent All-American Intercollegiate tournament at Houston Golf Club, Humble in the state of Texas.
O'Loughlin is playing in his first spring for the Cowboys and is coming off a team-leading autumn record when he averaged 72.5 strokes per round.
 McNeill, pictured right, is back for his sophomore season after posting a 74.7 per round average in six autumn tournaments. The Scot placed 13th at last year's SLC championships, and had two Top 30 finishes in the first half of the current college golf season.
 "Duncan has as much talent as anyone I have had at McNeese," said head coach Burk. "He is the longest player we have off the tee and is learning what areas he needs to improve on to take advantage of that length. He has the ability to be an All-American."
In the All-American tournament, O'Loughlin finished T32 on one-over 217 with rounds of 73, 70 and 74.
McNeill had improving scores of 76, 74 and 73 for a total of 223 and a T61 placing behind Cooper Dossey (Baylor University), individual winner of the 54-hole event over a course of 7,067yd (par 72) with scores of 68, 66 and 72 for a total of 206.
Charlotte University's freshman from Dublin, Connor Purcell tied for seventh place with scores of 72, 71 and 69 for 212.
Charlotte team-mate John Gough, a freshman from Slough, had a T61 finish on 223 with scores of 74, 78 and 71.
A third Charlotte student, Matty Lamb from Hexham, shot rounds of 72, 77 and 75 for a T56 finish on 222.
Baylor (836) won the team title by five shots from Vanderbilt. McNeese State (868) finished eighth and Charlotte (873) 10th in a field of 18 teams and 96 players.
