Colorado shot a 6-over-par 286 team score, finishing fourth at the 48th annual The Goodwin tournament on Saturday at Stanford University's Golf Course.
The Buffs, ranked 69th nationally, slipped from third the day before after struggling on the back nine.
Senior Philip Juel-Berg led CU after a final-round 1-over 71 to finish 1-under for the tournament. His 209 score left him in ninth place. Junior Jeremy Paul finished even-par 210 to tie for 10th.
"Overall, our team did a nice job today of battling," CU head coach Roy Edwards said. "We didn't have our best games, but we did a good job shooting a manageable score. The last nine to 12 holes (the leaders) had to deal with a lot of wind, but the guys did a great job of grinding it out."
CU finished the 54-hole tournament with a 6-over 846 score. UC Davis led from start to finish. The 101st-ranked team finished at 13-under 827. No. 33 UNLV came in second, 10 shots back, while host and eighth-ranked Stanford was third at 1-over 839.

Top-ranked Cal rolls over CU
Top-ranked Cal made short work of Colorado on Saturday, winning the Pac-12 Conference match 7-0 at Berkeley's Hellman Tennis Complex.
The match lasted just two hours and eight minutes, the shortest contest of the season for the Buffs (6-11, 1-5 Pac-12).
The undefeated Golden Bears (15-0, 4-0) scored all eight wins — six in singles and two in doubles for that point — in straight sets. Cal's Klara Fabikova (No. 2 singles), Denise Starr (No. 3), Karla Popovic (No. 5) and Maria Smith (No. 6) surrendered just 11 games combined.
CU's best bet at an upset came at No. 1 and 4 singles. Nuria Ormeño Ruiz, ranked 74th nationally, fell 7-5, 6-2 to seventh-ranked Maegan Manasse at No. 1 singles, while Annabelle Andrinopoulos was defeated 7-5, 6-3 by 68th-ranked Olivia Hauger at No. 4. Manasse rallied from a 5-3 deficit in the first set against Ormeño Ruiz by winning the next four games for the set. Andrinopoulos was up 4-3 in the first set before dropping four of the next five games.
"We're going into the last quarter of the season and (Cal is) the best team in the country," CU head coach Nicole Kenneally said. "They've got great confidence and believe (in themselves). Anytime you have an opportunity to play tennis like this, you have an opportunity to learn. We have to take lessons away from these matches and grow on those lessons. You don't always see the results in the scores, but we're improving and that's good to see."
CU returns home Friday to face No. 32 UCLA. Match time is set for 1:30 p.m.
