This weekend at the Battle at the Brook, the Lords captured second place, falling behind host Ohio Wesleyan University by only two strokes.
In Sunday’s opening round, the Lords shot a combined score of 302, three strokes off Denison’s leading score. Alex Blickle ’15 and Jordan Harlacher ’16 both carded scores of 74.
Monday saw the Lords post with a daily score of 299 and a combined score of 601. The second-place finish is the Lords’ best this season.
“[I’m] happy with the team’s performance,” Head Coach Grant Wallace wrote in an email. “They’ve hit a lot of great shots and put some pressure on their playing partners.”
One golfer who has not been feeling any pressure this season is Jake Fait ’16, sporting a new haircut and fresh enthusiam. His moment came on Monday, when Fait he shot a two-under-par 69 to claim the top spot on the medalist stand.
“Still, we can improve in certain areas, which we will address at practice in the next week,” Wallace said. “I am happy that we had a great second day and made it close.”
