TUCSON, Ariz. - Boise State senior men's golfer T.K. Kim finished fifth at the 2013 Mountain West Men's Golf Championships Sunday, after posting three-straight rounds of par-or-better.

Kim carded an even-par, final-round 71 at the 7,144-yard Catalina Course at OMNI Tucson National. He opened the tournament with a 71, and fired a 2-under 69 in the second round, finishing with a 54-hole total of 211 (-2).

He was one of only seven individuals in the 45-man field to finish under-par.

Kim's three-round total is tied for the second-lowest at a conference championship in school history, and his fifth-place effort is tied for the eighth-best at a league tournament by a Bronco all-time.

Kim has finished in the top 25 in each of the Broncos' 11 tournaments this season, tied for the second-most in school history. His three top-10 finishes in 2012-13 give him seven for his career, tied for the eight-most in school history. His scoring average of 72.29 this season is the fifth-lowest by a Bronco all-time.

He will now await the regional selection show to see if he will advance to the NCAA Regional Championships, May 16-18.

Boise State finished tied for seventh place with Wyoming after carding a three-day score of 897 (300-298-299, +45). New Mexico won the tournament with an 8-under 844, and UNLV's Kevin Penner took home individual medalist honors with a 7-under 206.

Bronco seniors Clayton Kosanovich (76-78-74) and Charlie Marusiak (75-77-76) each finished tied for 32nd with three-round totals of 228 (+15). Redshirt junior Jordan Skyles (78-74-79--231, +18) finished 37th, and freshman Logan France (79-78-78--235, +22) finished tied for 40th.
