SEASIDE, Calif. - The UC San Diego men's golf team held its standing from Monday and finished fifth of 15 teams Tuesday at the Otter Invitational, hosted by Cal State Monterey Bay at Black Horse Golf Course.

UCSD shot a three-round total of 897, 33 strokes over par. The Tritons had a 302 in Tuesday's third and final round to go along with a 306 and a 289 in Monday's first two rounds, which had them in fifth place at the end of the opening day of play.

Junior transfer Jacob Corbin and sophomore Clayton Yamaguchi each tied for 20th with an 8-over 224 as UCSD's top finishers. Corbin went 78-70-76 while Yamaguchi shot 78-74-72. Corbin's 70 in the second round was the lowest single-round score for any Triton, while Yamaguchi was the lone UCSD player to shoot under par Tuesday.

The host and eighth-ranked Otters won the tourney by a massive 27-stroke advantage. CSUMB finished at 854, the only team under par at -10. Barry (881, +17), the top-ranked team in the country, placed second and Wilmington (889, +25) was third.

The Otters led the field by 15 strokes after Monday's play.

UCSD finished ahead of several nationally-ranked teams, including No. 6 Chico State (seventh), No. 10 Cal State Stanislaus (12th), No. 15 Hawaii-Hilo (13th), No. 20 Western Washington (sixth) and No. 24 California Baptist (ninth).

Two players tied for the individual crown. Cal State Monterey Bay's Anton Rosen and Barry's Mario Beltran each finished with a score of 211, 5-under. CSUMB's Dylan Jackson was two strokes behind in third place.

Also competing for UCSD, Jeff Roseth tied for 30th (79-71-77--227, +11), Daniel Yang tied for 39th (78-74-77--229, +13) and Ryan Rankin tied for 63rd (72-84-82--238, +22).

UCSD led all teams with a pair of eagles, both coming from Corbin.

The tournament marked the first time that Corbin and Roseth were in the UCSD lineup. It was Rankin's first action since April of 2013.

The par-72 Black Horse course played at 6,810 yards Tuesday.

The Otter Invitational was the final competition of the fall season for the Tritons, who won't compete again until 2014. Last week, they placed third of 14 teams at the Sonoma State Invitational. Prior to that, UCSD tied for eighth of 15 squads at Chico State's Wildcat Classic.
