Centre golf tied for fifth after opening round at Transy Fall Invite
LEXINGTON, Ky. – The Centre men's golf team made the short trip to the University Club of Kentucky to open their 2017-18 season at the Transylvania Fall Invite. Due to wet conditions on the course from the remnants of Hurricane Harvey, the teams were only able to play 18 of the scheduled 36 holes on Saturday and the Colonels sit in a three-way tie for fifth place with one more round left to play.
Centre shot a combined team score of 298 on Saturday to tie both Gustavus Adolphus and RPI. The Saturday round being cut in half created a log jam in the middle of the leaderboard, with Greensboro and Wittenberg at 292, Kenyon and Otterbein at 296, Centre's three-way tie at 298 and Transylvania and Mount St. Joseph at 299, marking seven shots between third place and 12th place.
Individually, the top round of the day for Centre belonged to senior Andrew McKinney (Danville, Ky.), who had one of the best rounds of any player in the field, shooting a two-under round of 70 to sit in a five-way tie for fourth place overall.
Senior Paxton Duff (Louisville, Ky.) and juniors Zach Mattingly (Louisville, Ky.) and Hans Stromberg (Lexington, Ky.) all posted scores of 76 for the Colonels on Saturday. Junior Jake Mattingly (Louisville, Ky.) shot a round of 78 to finish off Centre's scoring rounds for the opening day of competition. Junior Isaac Vock (Loveland, Ohio) entered as an individual and posted a score of 82.
The Transylvania Fall Invite will conclude on Sunday with the final two holes.
