Men’s golf team finishes 11th at C&F Bank Intercollegiate
March 23, 2011Tweet
The Binghamton University golf team finished the C&F Bank Intercollegiate in 11th place out of 24 teams following a 36-hole total of 293-305=598 (+22) at the par-72 Woods Course from the Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, Va. James Madison captured the team title with a two-day total of 572 (-4).
“Overall, it was an OK tournament,” head coach Bernie Herceg said. “I think my expectations went up a lot more after our great first round considering we had only been outside a few times up to that point. But it’s nice to get our first tournament under our belt and hopefully this will prep us for a busy April. I’m proud of the guys because they hung in there and kept the scores respectable.”
Senior Jake Katz posted his 11th consecutive top-10 performance, dating back to the Hal Sutton Intercollegiate last season. Katz carded a two-day total of 1-under-par (69-74), two strokes shy of a potential four-way playoff for medalist honors. The four-time America Sky Player of the Week was within striking distance all day, but ran into trouble down the stretch. Katz bogeyed the par-5 16th after hitting the ball into the hazard. Following a great approach on the ensuing hole, Katz lipped out the five-footer and tapped in for par. At the 18th, a long par-4 into the wind, Katz hit a brilliant second shot within 15 feet but hung his birdie try on the lip.
James Madison’s Ryan Vince prevailed in the three-man playoff at 3-under-par 141. He ousted Justin Martinson and teammate Chris Wellde on the third playoff hole.
Sophomore David Cellura registered two solid rounds en route to a 20th-place finish. He posted rounds of 74-73 (+3) between Monday and Tuesday. Cellura made it to 3-under on the back side, but gave away a few shots down the stretch.
Freshman Bryce Edmister carded an impressive 1-over-par 73 in the opening round, but struggled on day two with a 7-over-par 79. He ended up tied for 54th.
