Iowa State senior men's golfer Nick Voke made history Sunday afternoon by earning medalist honours at the Hawkeye Invitational with a 54-hole total of 207.
Voke's victory was the fourth of his career, tying All-American Scott Fernandez (2012-15) for the most individual tournament titles by a Cyclone student.
The Auckland amateur held the 36-hole lead by two shots after posting a 68 and 67 in the first two rounds. Voke's lead quickly evaporated when he suffered back-to-back bogeys on holes 10 and 11 in the third round. However, Voke regrouped by registering pars on the next four holes before ringing the bell with back-to-back birdies on No. 16 and No 17.
Voke's two-under finish on the last eight holes helped him post a final-round 72 and hold off Texas Tech's Hurly Long by two strokes.
Voke's win was the third by a Cyclone at the Hawkeye Invitational since 2012 and Voke now has 17 career top-10 finishes, the third-most in school history.
ISU has had five golfers win individual titles 13 times since Andrew Tank began his tenure as the Cyclone golf coach in 2010.
Denzel Ieremia had a fantastic final round, carding a 69 to jump into a tie for 21st in the medalist race at 218. Ieremia made five impressive birdies in the afternoon to fly up the leaderboard.
The Cyclones are back in action at the Big 12 Championships, April 24-26 in Hutchinson, Kan.
