STATESBORO, Ga. – The Maryland men’s golf team finished 13th at the Schenkel Invitational on Sunday after shooting a 311 in the final round. Senior Sean Bosdosh led the Terps once again, shooting an even-par 216 (72-71-73) and tying for 11th place. This marks Bosdosh’s seventh consecutive top-20 finish dating back to the fall.
The Terps also had one of their best rounds of the year on Saturday, when they shot a season-low 288. Tom Harris shot a career-low 67 in the second round, helping Maryland record the third lowest team score of the day. Despite the team’s finish at the Schenkel, coach Jason Rodenhaver saw some potential for the Terps.
“It just shows our team that we can play with these guys,” said Director of Intercollegiate Golf Jason Rodenhaver. “But with golf, you have to play three. Just like on the tour, you have to play on Sunday. I think it’s been a pattern for us the last year and a half having poor third rounds, but I hope if we can keep getting ourselves in a good position we’ll learn how to close the deal.”
Alabama took home its second straight Schenkel Invitational, winning the team title with an 848 (281-282-285). Texas was ten shots off the winners with a 858 (280-285-293), and North Florida came in third with an 868 (294-291-283).
Alabama also had the individual winner, Justin Thomas, who shot a nine-under 207 over the weekend. Freshman Andrew McCain and senior Stephen Bosdosh both saw improvements from last week’s Palmetto Classic. McCain posted a 228 (76-74-78), 13 strokes lower than his previous 54-hole result. Stephen Bosdosh was ten strokes better than his final score at the Palmetto Classic, shooting a 231 (74-76-81).
