In its final regular season tournament, the University of Maryland men's golf team claimed second place at the Rutherford Intercollegiate at Penn State's Blue Course. The Terps, who led after the first round, were overtaken by tournament host Penn State's 10-under-par performance in the last two rounds. Maryland finished with an eight-over-par 872 total, 13 shots behind team champion Penn State (859).

The Terps placed four individuals in the top 20, including two in the top 10. Returning to the course where he won medalist honors at the 2000 Pennsylvania High School Championships, freshman Bobby MacWhinnie (Pittsburgh, Pa.) shot a two-under 70 in the final round to take ninth place. His 217 total was 11 shots behind individual champion Jeff Turton of Penn State (206).

Also for the Terps, junior John Moheyer (Lima, Ohio) earned his first top-10 finish of the spring by grabbing a share of 10th place. He shot a two-over-par total of 218 for the second consecutive tournament.

Senior Corey Brigham (Rumson, N.J.) recorded his sixth consecutive top-15 finish by claiming a share of 13th place with a 219 total. With a total of 221, sophomore Tim Kane (Simsbury, Conn.) tied for 19th place for his best result of the spring. Senior Phillip Fenstermaker (Rockville, Md.) tied for 43rd place at 229.

As the likely second-ranked team in District II behind Penn State, the Terps will find out where they will play in the NCAA Championship when regional pairings are announced May 6.
