Golf team takes second at Titan Invitational

The Carnegie Mellon golf team hit the greens last week at the Bridges Golf Club for the McDaniel Spring Invitational and shot 661 total to tie with Keystone College for 12th place.

Sophomore Michael Cheng was the top contender for the Tartans, shooting 15 over par (81, 78, 159) to take 17th in the individual standings. Close behind in 18th place was senior Brett Cannaday (80, 81, 161), who shot two strokes more than Cheng.

The last three members of the team were seniors Nick Burkholder (84, 86, 170), Christopher Lee (90, 83, 173), and Adam Klein (88, 91, 179).

Still fresh, the Tartans headed to the New Castle Country Club the next day and dominated the Titan Invitational, taking second in a tournament of 12 teams. After two rounds of par-72 play, the Tartans ended with 321 points, just four points behind first-place team Gannon University.

The top scorer for the Tartans was Lee (40, 37, 77), who took fourth individually. Sophomore Terence Einhorn (42, 38, 80) and Cannaday (44, 37, 81) took 11th and 12th, respectively.

The last two team members were junior Brent Driscoll (41, 42, 83) and Klein (44, 42, 86). Sophomore Alex Cohen and first-year Steven Nguyen competed individually and tallied 84 and 89, respectively.

The Tartans hit the links again yesterday and today at the Mid-Atlantic Regional, held at the Hershey Country Club.
