The Carnegie Mellon men’s golf team finished its season by hosting the annual Carnegie Mellon Invitational last Thursday at the Longue Vue Club in Verona, Pa. Competing against the Tartans were Washington & Jefferson College, California University of Pennsylvania, Westminster College, and St. Vincent College. Out of the five-school field, the Tartans finished second to Washington & Jefferson by seven strokes.

The Tartans saw an outstanding performance from senior Brent Driscoll. Driscoll finished his last invite for Carnegie Mellon by shooting a 74, only four over par, to finish third overall. First-year and Pennsylvania native Ian Bangor shot eight over par (78) in his first career Carnegie Mellon Invitational to tie for 11th place with fellow Tartan junior Michael Cheng. Junior Terence Einhorn finished 13th for team by shooting a 79, while first-year Alex Fry came in 26th.

Competing individually for the Tartans, first-year Grant Strimel shot a 77, putting him in eighth place overall.

After a successful season, the Tartan golf team will resume play in the fall.
