On March 1, a score record from the Brandt Snedeker era was broken in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, when Vanderbilt sophomore Cole Sherwood shot a final-round 61 and led Vandy to the team title at the stacked Cabo Collegiate.
Sherwood finished his final round at the Cove Club with three eagles and five birdies, accounting for a large part of Vanderbilt’s final-round 19-under 265. The Commodores finished the tournament at 32 under par over 54 holes, ahead of Texas Tech, Florida State, and Arkansas. After won the Prestige the week before, this marks the team’s second consecutive triumph this season.
In addition to Sherwood’s individual victory in Cabo, Vanderbilt also received a T-7 from Gordon Sargent.
In a school statement, head coach Scott Limbaugh noted, “Total team effort.” “I believe someone approached me about midway through the first round and informed me that we had dropped to last place.” So, 45 holes later, we glance up and realize we’ve won the tournament.
“I really believe that says a lot about our team, our leadership, and our character.” I’m just ecstatic, and some of my coworkers have done some incredible things this week. It’s inspiring to see children succeed. You’re starting to see some buy-in, and once you do, good things can happen.”
In the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings, Vanderbilt is placed eighth.
