Men’s Golf Closes Fall Slate with Eighth Place Finish
FINDLAY, Ohio - Ohio Dominican's men's golf team finished the fall portion of the schedule with an eighth place finish over the weekend at the Findlay Invitational at Findlay CC.
The Panthers sat fourth after Saturday's first round with a combined score of 302, but a 317 in Sunday's action dropped ODU to eighth with a total of 619, five strokes short of Saginaw Valley State (Mich.) in seventh. With a seven-over 583, Grand Valley State (Mich.) took the team title by nine shots over Tiffin.
Junior Kevin Hartoin (Cincinnati, OH) led the Panthers for the second straight week with an eight-over 152 to finish in a seven-way tie for 24th. ODU newcomers Conor O'Hea (Fr./Middletown, OH), Kyle Burgess (Fr./Lancaster, OH) and Connor Stookey (Jr./Milford, OH) finished as a pack, tying for 42nd, 45th and 48th, respectively. O'Hea shot a two-day score of 156, including a career low 73 in round one, while Burgess shot 78-79 (157) and Stookey posted rounds of 75-83 (158).
ODU returns to the links next spring as it hosts the two-day Harmony Match Play Challenge at Harmony Golf Preserve in Harmony, Florida, beginning on March 15.
