Golf team finishes near last in invitational


Marshall University men’s golf team finished 14th of the 16 teams in the Joe Feaganes Marshall Invitational Tuesday, which was held at the Guyan Golf Course in Huntington.

The Herd finished day one, which was on Monday, in 13th place and with three players in the top 20. During day two, the team struggled in the second round with a team mark of 296.

Head coach Matt Grobe said while the team displayed some improvements during the tournament, it has to be more consistent going forward.

Despite the team’s overall performance, junior Will Evans finished the tournament as the

individual runner-up.

Grobe said he was pleased with Evans’ play.

“I am really happy with the way Will played today,” Grobe said. “We knew it was just a matter of time before he started to shoot some good numbers.”

Allen said while he was pleased with his individual performance, he was disappointed in how the team finished.

“We’re a much better team than that,” he said.

Sophomore Alex Weiss, who tied for fifth in individuals, said he thought he played one of the better rounds of his college career.

“It was good tournament for me,” Weiss said. “Any time you can put together a round in a field like this and finish in the top 5, you feel pretty good.”

The Herd will take the course again on Sept. 27 and 28 in the Patriot Intercollegiate held at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.
