Men’s golf to host league tourney this weekend
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Middlebury College men’s golf team tuned up for this Saturday’s NESCAC championship at the Ralph Myhre Golf Course by finishing second at this past weekend’s Williams Spring Classic.
The Panthers earned the right to host this weekend’s NESCAC tournament with their performance this past fall. This weekend’s winner earns the league’s automatic berth to the NCAA Division III tournament.
At the Williams event, Middlebury finished with a two-day total of 614 to finish a stroke behind team champion Trinity. The host Ephs placed third (621) during the eight-team event hosted at the Taconic Golf Club, followed by Hamilton (631) in fourth. The Panthers took 10 strokes off their day one score, firing a 302 on Sunday.
Middlebury’s Philippe Morin finished second with a 151, carding a 78 on day two after a 73 on Saturday. Fitz Bowen was the top Panther during Sunday’s round, coming in with a 73 to finish in a tie for sixth place with a 156. Joining him in sixth was Rodrigo Andrade, who shaved a pair of strokes off his score with a 77 during Sunday’s round for a two-day total of 156.
One stroke behind with a 157 was Bennett Doherty, who tallied an 80 on Sunday, good for an 11th-place tie. Joe Ko (88-74-162) and David McDaniel (84-86-170) rounded out the squad.
