Golf places 21st at Jekyll Invite

The Carnegie Mellon Varsity Golf Team was invited to Jekyll Island, Ga., to participate in the three-round Jekyll Island Invitational. 29 teams were invited to compete in this meet.

The Tartans finished 21st at this highly-competitive tournament, with top Division III teams as their opponents.

Tartans’ top finisher was junior Terence Einhorn. His three-round score of 221 placed him 25th overall in the competition. Each round got sequentially better for Einhorn. After stroking a 77 in the first round, he scored a 73 and then a 71 in each of the next two rounds.

First-year Ian Bangor finished second on the club, and 68th overall, with a total score of 231. His best round was round two, scoring a 72. Junior Michael Cheng’s score of 233 finished him 80th, scoring an 83 and two 75s. Senior Brent Driscoll had a card total of 241, and Sophomore Jisoo Park scored 261.
“Well we had a rough first day, but we rallied very well to make the two day cut by shooting a 298....
Overall we finished respectably considering the strength of the field,” said Bangor about the invitational.

Carnegie Mellon will compete in the Titan invitational Monday, March 28, at the New Castle Country Club.
