Texas Tech senior Hurly Long came up just two shots short of another individual title on Wednesday, taking second place at the Sun Bowl Andeavor All-America Golf Classic.

Long’s three-day run of 65-66-66 (-16) at the El Paso Country Club earned him runner-up honors as one of just five participants to finish double-digit strokes under par.

Long now has seven sub-70 rounds since the start of the fall season (four tournaments), four of those being 66 or better.

Long and Texas’ Doug Ghim were tied at 17-under through 51 holes, and six-under in the final round, when Long bogeyed the par-4 16th. Ghim went on to card a birdie on No. 17 to hold Long off at the end.

The other Red Raider in attendance, Fredrik Nilehn, shot a final-round 70 to finish tied for 17th at -1 for the tournament.

The No. 13 Red Raiders will begin their spring slate Feb. 1-3 at the Amer Ari Invitational in Kona, Hawaii, where they will look to defend their championship won at the 2017 version of the event.
