Golf continues season play

Stephen Exarhos

The Lawrence University men’s
golf team competed in three events
last week, and accumulated decent
results in each.
Last Saturday, April 17, the
team traveled to Beloit to compete
at the Beloit Buc Open at the
Glen Erin Golf Club. Senior Adam
Ferguson led the way with a sevenover
78, which qualified him to tie
for fourth place.
Ferguson and senior Tom
Vyskocil both finished in the top
20, and the team placed sixth overall.
On Sunday, the team bussed
down to Sussex, Wis. to compete
in the Carroll Invitational at the
Ironwood Golf Course. Again,
Ferguson led the way with a sevenover
79. The competition, however,
was stiffer than it had been the day
before, and Ferguson’s 79 was only
good enough to tie for 13th.
The Vikings did better as a
team than they had done in Beloit,
and they finished in fifth place.
Tuesday, the team competed
against Ripon College in the Battle
at the Bog Golf Course in Saukville,
Ferguson and junior Jon Mays
each shot a nine-over 81, as did
Ripon’s top finisher, junior Mike
Kocher. The battle ended up in
a tie with both teams shooting a
combined 339.
The Vikings host the Lawrence
Invitational at the Eagle Creek
Golf Course this Saturday and
compete again at the St. Norbert
Invitational Sunday. These are the
last two events before the Midwest
Conference Championship, which
begins April 29.
