Cougar Men’s Golf Finishes Fourth at Kiawah Classic
KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. - Led by sophomore Zach Munroe, who finished tied for third-place individually, the College of Charleston men’s golf team finished fourth at the Kiawah Classic Tuesday at Turtle Point.
The conditions were tough on the final day of the tournament as no team shot under par and 21 of the 26 teams shot at least 12-over par. The Cougars shot 24-over and finished 38-over for the tournament with rounds of 290-292-308. South Carolina won the team title as they shot even-par and finished at 7-over for the tournament.
“We struggled a bit today,” CofC head coach Mark McEntire said. “I’m not sure why, but we put up too many big numbers. I’m happy with the fourth-place finish, but we have a lot of work to do in the off-season to get to where we want to be by the end of the season.”
A pair of Cougar golfers finished in the top-10 with Munroe shooting rounds of 71-71-73=215 (+2) and finished tied for third-place and junior Alex Ellis shot rounds of 70-73-74=217 (+4) and finished tied for sixth-place.
The Cougars resume the 2012-13 season with the Pat Hicks Thunderbird Invitational Feb. 11-12 at the Sunbrook Golf Club in St. George, Utah.
