MANAKIN-SABOT, Va. – Junior Ben Warnquist led the Maryland men’s golf team to go three-under par in the 54-hole Golf Galaxy VCU Shootout at Hermitage Country Club. He finished tied for fifth on the leaderboards with a combined score of 213 (74-70-69).
After the first 36 holes played Monday, Warnquist was even on the day and sat tied for 11th on the leaderboards. He shot a 69 Monday to lead the Terrapins to a sixth-place finish.
“That’s our best event of the fall so far,” head coach Jason Rodenhaver said. “It’s taken us a few weekends, but we’re definitely making progress. We are really happy for Ben Warnquist. We’ve been looking for that from him since he was a freshman and we’re hoping that’s what’s to come. He’s very talented and it’s great for his confidence. We have to just have to get more consistent and close out each round. I think we’re moving in the right direction.”
Senior Sean Bosdosh went two-under in the final round Tuesday go wind up tied for ninth with a 215, which was one stroke under par.
Freshman Victor Fox wound up tied for 33rd in the tournament with a combined score of 224 (79-70-75). Sophomore Tom Harris shot a 227 (79-73-75) and junior Connor Tendall continued to improve over the three rounds and finished with a 238 (85-78-75).
