Centre men's golf finishes tenth at Transy Fall Invite

LEXINGTON, Ky. - The final 18 holes of the Transylvania Fall Invitational are in the books from the University Club of Kentucky, and the Centre men's golf team shot a combined team score of 297 on Sunday to finish in tenth place.

Centre's 297 was one shot better than their combined team score of 298 from the shortened Saturday round for a two-day score of 595. Guilford won the tournament with a two-day score of 570, followed by Greensboro, Ohio Wesleyan, Kenyon and Wittenberg.

Individually, a trio of Colonels shared low man honors for Centre on Sunday. Seniors Andrew McKinney (Danville, Ky.) and Paxton Duff (Louisville, Ky.) and junior Zach Mattingly (Louisville, Ky.) each fired scores of 74 to pace the Colonels in the final round of play. McKinney's two-day score of 144 put him at even par for the tournament and into the top ten overall. Duff and Mattingly each finished with a two-day score of 150.

Juniors Jake Mattingly (Louisville, Ky.) and Hans Stromberg (Lexington, Ky.) each posted scores of 75 for Centre, with both players improving on their Saturday rounds, Mattingly by three strokes and Stromberg by one.

The next tournament for the Centre men's golf team will be the Southern Athletic Association Fall Preview in Dickson, Tenn. on Sept. 9-10. The last time the Colonels played in this event was in 2015, when the Colonels posted a runner-up finish.
