Crimson Tide Men's Golf:

EL PASO, Texas;

Alabama men's golfer Davis Riley finished in sixth place at the 2016 Sun Bowl Western Refining Collegiate All-American Classic which was held on Nov. 12-13 at the El Paso Country Club. Riley closed play with a 54-hole total of 2-under par 209 (68-72-69) competing against some of the nation's top players in the prestigious event.

Riley sat in third place after shooting a three-under 68 in the opening round, but had fallen to a tie for seventh going into the final 18 holes. After a rough start that included two bogeys on the front nine, Riley used three birdies and an eagle to shoot three-under par in the final nine holes of the tournament.

Sam Burns of LSU won the event, carding a 201 over 54 holes.

The Sun Bowl Western Refining College All-America Golf Classic is one of the premier college golf tournaments in the country. Some of golf's brightest stars have traveled to El Paso to compete in the tournament since its inaugural year in 1976.

Alabama-alum Jerry Pate, Jordan Spieth, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Davis Love III, father of current Tide junior Dru Love, Ricky Barnes and Notah Begay are just a handful of past participants who went on to have successful PGA careers. 

College All-America Golf Classic Alumni have combined to win 50 majors championships and have earned over $1.8 billion in career earnings. Former Tide golfers Cory Whitsett and Hunter Hamrick won the title in 2011 and 2009, respectively.

To be eligible for competition student-athletes must have been named as an All-America team honoree during the previous year as well the U.S. Amateur Champion or Runner Up who still have collegiate eligibility. The event is free and open to the public.
