A group of difficult opponents and a rain-soaked course capped off a tough week for the Cleveland State men’s golf program.
The Vikings finished ninth out of 12 teams at the Telich Sun Life Financial Invitational hosted by CSU at Sand Ridge Golf Course in Chardon.
Due to high winds and cold rain, the 54-hole invitational was forced to an early ending after only two rounds of play.
“It’s always nice to host your own tournament and play on such a familiar course,” said head coach Steve Weir in a recent press release. “Unfortunately, we couldn’t get much going today with the wind and cooler weather.”
Despite CSU’s ninth place finish, their score of 629 landed them only two shots shy of tying Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne for sixth place. Malone College came out on top at the invitational with a final score of 598, while Cincinnati finished second at 610.
The Vikings were led by senior Kyle Cobb who carded rounds of 76 and 75 to finish seventh in the overall individual standings.
Next up on the schedule for Cleveland State is Oct. 12, when the Vikings will travel to Southern Ohio for a two-day invitational at Traditions Golf Club hosted by the University of Cincinnati Bearcats. It is the Vikings final match of the year. The season resumes Feb. 22.
