This past weekend the men’s golf team opened their 2015 season and took home the Rutgers Invitational team title with a 14-under-par. The Tigers beat the second place host, Rutgers, by twenty strokes. Senior Ryan Siegler tied for second place overall with a score of 208, finishing the tournament with a strong -5 scorecard.
“Ryan finishing tied for second-place is a real confidence builder as we go forward,” Head Coach Brian Yaniger said according to towsontigers.com.
Other high scorers for the Tigers include juniors James Grem, who finished 2-under-par, and Michael Chanaud (-1), all rounding out top 10 finishes for Towson. All Tigers finished among the top 11 golfers in the tournament. Chanaud also recorded a team-low of 66 in the third round. This is a strong start for the Tigers, who have a difficult schedule this fall packed with top-notch competition. The team hopes to feed off their success at Rutgers for their next tournament at the Cornell Invitational next weekend in Ithaca, New York.
“The guys played three solid rounds of golf,” Yaniger said according to towsontigers.com. “With four guys at par or better in the important third round, we are looking to continue this type of play at Cornell.”
