Watch out for Rowan Lester this year after the Dubliner claimed his third win of the season and his fourth for Texas Wesleyan in this week's Dallas Baptist Patriot Invitational.

Winner of the NAIA National Championship in his freshman year, the Hermitage man (22) won the Kohler Collegiate at Whistling Straits and the Southern Plains Intercollegiate at Gaillardia Country Club before coming home five shots ahead at Hackberry Creek in Irving.

The reigning North of Ireland champion followed rounds of 71 and 74 with a 68 to win by five shots on three-under-par 213 from St. Mary's University's Emilio Gonzalez, who had a two-stroke lead entering the final round.

Texas Wesleyan also claimed its sixth team win of the season.

The Rams will return to action at the Sooner Athletic Conference Championships at Lincoln Park in Oklahoma City from April 23-24.
