Men's golf finishes strong in Memphis
By John Cuturic
Cleveland State University’s men’s golf team competed at the Memphis Intercollegiate on Monday and Tuesday this week, coming in eleventh place out of 15 teams.
Cleveland State had its best result from senior Andrew Bailey, who tied for an individual third place.
“After an extremely rough start to the event, we played quite well in the last two and a half round,” said Steve Weir, men’s golf head coach. “Andrew Bailey stepped up and played really well, finishing third individually in a very deep field.”
The Vikings’ Horizon League rivals, the Oakland University Golden Grizzlies, came in fifteenth place.
The tournament kicked off a busy April for the Vikings. They’ll travel to Columbus and Detroit. At the end of the month, they’ll play in the Horizon League championship at Howey in the Hills, Fla.
“If we play well, we like our chances,” Weir said. “But the Horizon League tournament will come down to us taking care of the small things, both in our preparation over the next 24 days as well as when we tee it up April 25 to 27.”
