WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – Freshman Brendan MacDougall shot an even-par 70 to lead the High Point University men’s golf team to its best round in the final 18 holes at the Kingsmill Intercollegiate in Williamsburg, Va.

MacDougall carded two bogeys in his first six holes, but shot -2 the rest of the way to post HPU’s best round of the event. The Calgary, Alberta native showed marked improvement throughout the week and finished the tournament in a tie for 47th in the large and competitive field (80, 73, 70; +13).

“Brendan and Alec both had solid days today,” head coach Brady Gregor said. “They stuck to their process even when things weren’t going their way and it helped them finish off their rounds today. We are a month away from conference and it’s time to take the positives that we can away from today and start preparing the five guys that will show up for us there. We will be ready.”

As a team, Tuesday was by far High Point’s best outing of the tournament played at the Kingsmill River Course. The Panthers shot a 295, 10 shots better than their output on Monday, to move to 15th in the standings (309, 305, 295; +69).
