Viking Golf experiences off-weekend in rough weather

Andy York

The LU Golf team had to play in some tough weather conditions this past weekend at the Elmhurst College Invitational, and it showed. The Vikings took seventh in the 15-team event. The Vikings as a team finished 27 shots behind the champion, Lewis University.

The Vikings did not fare as well as they have been individually, either. The highest finisher was Markus Specks, who shot 82 and tied for 19th place.

The other Viking golfers were Andy Link, who shot 84, Jeff Henderson and Blake Nelson, who both shot 85, and Travis Orth, who shot 89.

The Vikings will start their defense of the MWC Northern Division crown this weekend with the first and second of five tournaments that will decide the champion.

Saturday, the Vikings will play in the first round hosted by Carroll at the Broadlands, and Sunday round two will take place at Beloit Country Club, hosted by the Buccaneers.
