Golf defends home course

Stephen Exarhos

The Lawrence University golf team hosted the Lawrence Invitational last Saturday at Appleton’s own Eagle Creek Golf Course. The course would prove to be somewhat sloppy due to recent heavy rain.
Senior Adam Ferguson led the way for the Vikings, as he has done all year. He finished with a 6-over-par 78, which was good enough to secure a fifth-place finish.
Senior Tom Vyskocil and junior Jon Mays also turned in solid scores of 83 and 87, respectively. Vyskocil finished in a tie for 20th, while Mays finished in a tie for 36th.
The Carthage College Red Men dominated the event, landing the top spots individually and as a team. Carthage’s Donnie Langland shot a 3-under-par individually to win the event, while the Red Men had an 18-over combined score of 306.
The Lawrence team finished placed sixth with a combined score of 342, landing them in the top half of the twelve-team field.
This weekend, the golf team will travel to Rockford, Ill. to compete in the Midwest Conference Championships at the Aldeen Golf Club.
