SKOKIE, Ill.- The Marshall University men’s golf team concluded its 2011 fall season at the Windon Memorial this past Monday, finishing in 13th place amongst 17 competing teams.
The tournament was hosted by Northwestern University at the Evanston Golf Club, and saw the Herd sitting in 12th place following the second round of action. Yet day three did not prove to be kind to the team, as it fell back one place while playing against some of the toughest competition it had seen to date.
Junior Nathan Kerns shot the lowest score for the Thundering Herd during the three-round tournament with a final round 71 for a 214 total that was good enough to tie him for 16th place in the 90 person field. Kerns score was one stroke better than UCLA’s Patrick Cantlay, the No. 1 ranked amateur in the nation, who finished with a total of 215.
Senior Bosten Miller was next on the team with a total, three-round score of 218 that was good enough to tie him for 38th. Miller shot scores of 76 and 75 in the final two rounds after being tied for second with an opening day score of 67.
The other Marshall golfers – Brian Anania, Carson Schambach, and Jeremy Rogers – finished with total scores of 222, 234, and 238 respectively. The Herd will now await the arrival of the spring season, which will begin on February 20, at the Wexford Intercollegiate Tournament in Hilton Head, S.C.
