PINEHURST, N.C. – Despite improving by two strokes from its first round performance on Pinehurst No. 8, the Marshall men’s golf team dropped from sixth to seventh place in the final standings after three rounds at the Pinehurst Intercollegiate in Pinehurst, N.C.
“We didn’t really play our best golf this week,” coach Matt Grobe said. “The event was great and we had a good time competing with some great teams.”
After posting a 24-over-par 308 in the third round at Pinehurst No. 8, the Herd’s three-day total came to 83-over 931. No. 50 UNCG (GolfStat.com) took the victory over the 10-team field at 45-over 893.
