Terps Enjoy Spring Break Before Liberty Classic

April 3, 2002

College Park, Md. - The Terrapin men's golf team is enjoying a 12-day break before its second District II tournament of the spring season at the two-day, 36-hole Liberty Classic at The Water's Edge Country Club in Smith Mountain Lake, Va.

Terps Claim Fourth At Colonial Intercollegiate

  • In their first District II tournament of the spring, the Terps recorded their best result with a fourth-place finish at the Colonial Intercollegiate at Golden Horseshoe Golf Club in Williamsburg, Va. Maryland shot its best round of the spring, a three-over-par 291, in the second and final round to finish nine strokes behind team champion Elon.
  • Senior Corey Brigham nearly claimed his first victory of the year with a two-under-par score of 142. Brigham's second-round, three-under-par 69, his second spring round in the 60s, pulled him to within one shot of individual winner Adam Holman of host school William & Mary.
  • Freshman Bobby MacWhinnie's third-place tie at 143 was his best collegiate finish, besting an eighth-place result at the Temple Invitational in the fall. Rounds of 71 and 72 gave MacWhinnie a one-under-par total, marking the first sub-par tournament of his collegiate career.
  • Competing individually, senior Phillip Fenstermaker carded consecutive rounds of 74 to tie for 14th and finish with the best result of any individual-only competitor. Sophomore Tim Kane improved 13 places from the first day by shooting a second-round 73 that left him in a tie for 25th. Junior John Moheyer and senior Pete Toole finished in a 48th-place tie at 156.

    Terps At A Glance

  • With his second-place showing at the Colonial, Brigham jumped into Golfstat's top 100 individuals at 96 overall. He stands as Golfstat's second-ranked golfer in District II, with his 72.503 adusted scoring average trailing only George Mason's Craig Mason by .519.
  • Brigham's second-place finish and MacWhinnie's tie for third at the Colonial gave the Terps their first pair of top-three individuals in a tournament for the first time since John Moheyer finished first and Keith Unikel tied for third at the Chattanooga Intercollegiate Oct. 4-5, 1999.
  • Despite finishing behind two regional opponents in their first District II tournament of the spring, the Terps continue to hold head-to-head winning records against every regional opponent except Penn State (0-2). The Nittany Lions hold a five-stroke advantage over Maryland after finishing ahead of the Terps at JMU and the Tillinghast Invitational. St. John's, William & Mary and James Madison are the only other District II teams to defeat the Terps, who are now 57-5 overall.
