Wake Forest's Paul McBride rallied with a closing 67 to finished tied 11th in the Querencia Cabo Collegiate in Mexico.

The 21-year old from The Island slipped from the first round lead to 17th when he added a 76 to his opening 65 at Los Cabos Querencia Country Club in Baja California.

But he surged back to form in the final round, recovering from a double bogey six at his second hole with six birdies and 10 pars for a four-under 67 that left him just four shots behind winner Corey Pereira of Washington on five-under-par.

A serious candidate for a Walker Cup place in Los Angeles later this year, McBride's performance helped Wake Forest into a tie for third with Washington on seven-under.

Oklahoma State — Zachary Olsen T13, Kristoffer Ventura T2, Hayden Wood 6th, Viktor Hovland T21 and Zach Bauchou T2 —  won by a huge 10 stroke margin on 19-under-par from Baylor as Pereira edged out a group of four players on nine-under 204 thanks to rounds of 70, 67 and 67.
