Playing as individuals from Samford were Crawford Flach and Ivan Truss. Flach tied for fourth with a three-round total of 218 (76-70-72). Truss tied for 11th at 223 (70-76-77).

As a team, Samford finished with a three-round score of 886 (296-289-301). UT Martin won the event, posting a final score of 873 (291-283-299).
