Senior Jordan MIllice of the Wittenberg Men’s Golf team has tallied up a number of awards for his outstanding grades and performance on the course, but his level of play at the Denison Fall Invitational was above anything he has accomplished in years past.
With a final score of 140 for 36 holes, Millice achieved his best two rounds ever as a Tiger. Not only did this earn him 1st place for the tournament, but it also contributed to a record breaking team score of 567. The team also broke the record for 18 holes with a score of 283 on Day 2.
On Day 1 of the tournament, Millice birdied the 7th and 9th holes, finishing the first nine with a score of two under.
“I had a bad three put on the 14th, but birdied the 15th and 16th holes to get to three under,” said Millice. The senior then continued this momentum throughout the tournament, scoring a 68 on the first day and a 72 on the second.
One important aspect of the Granville Golf Course that Coach Jeff Roope stressed to his players was that the greens are tough so they need to “stay below the hole” to keep their puts accurate.
“We all had really good course management,” said Millice on dealing with the difficult greens.
Other notable scores for the Tigers include those from junior Craig Osterbrock, freshman Alex Andrews, and sophomore David Wetterich, all ending the weekend with 143.
The Tigers look to continue their success at the Guy Kuhn Invitational which is Sept. 18-19 and the Gordin Classic which is Sept. 25-27.
