Golf hits the links at Jekyll Island, Ga.

The Carnegie Mellon golf team hit the links to start its spring season by competing in the three-day Jekyll Island Invitational last week. Held at the Oleander Course on Jekyll Island in Georgia, the 6700-yard and 72-par tournament was a good way to test the golf team’s game after its spring break trip to Florida. The Tartans shot 944 (322, 312, 310) for the tournament to place 19th out of 27 teams. The first-place team was Methodist University, with a total score of 864.

Leading the way for the Tartans was senior Brett Cannaday, who shot 234 to tie for 63rd place, one stroke ahead of sophomore teammate Michael Cheng and five ahead of senior teammate Christopher Lee.

Rounding out the Tartans were first-year Charles Windon, who shot just three behind Lee with 241, and junior Brent Driscoll with 249.

Results from the McDaniel Invitational will be posted online at
