HPU Men’s Golf Finishes 10th At Marshall Invite

The High Point University men’s golf team finished 10th at the Joe Feaganes Marshall Invite at the Guyan Golf and Country Club in Huntington, W.Va. Sophomore McKay Tye was HPU’s top finisher with a three-round score of 213.

“Overall this was a good first tournament for our young team,” said head coach Greg Flesher. “It shows the potential depth of our team that three players had rounds at or under par. We need to improve our fundamentals and course management as we go forward but this team has a lot of potential.”

The Panthers totaled a team score of 296 in the third round of the Marshall Invite to remain in 10th place. HPU carded an 885 (295-294-296) for the tournament.

Freshman Jack Sides tied for 31st with a final score of 219 (75-69-75) in his first collegiate tournament. Freshman Phil Oweida took one stroke off his second round score to card a 76 on Tuesday. He finished with a 226, which put him in a tie for 60th.
