AURORA, Ohio — Appalachian State University men’s golf finished the final round of play in Cleveland State University’s Invitational on Tuesday afternoon. The Mountaineers shot 292 (round one), 288 (round two) and 303 (round three) to finish tied for seventh overall with a tournament total of 883.

Kent State had a spectacular tournament to take the CSU Invitational title with a total of 818 (-46) with Oakland (862) and hosting Cleveland State (863) behind them in second and third. Kent State also featured the top two individual champions, Ian Holt and Chase Johnson, who finished -17 and -12, respectively. 

Adverse weather proved to make conditions less than ideal, but the linksman kept playing as the heavy stuff wouldn’t come down for quite a while.

Leading the Mountaineers with +1 finish at 217 was Chance Watson. Watson had a 76 in round one before following it up with a great second round (68). His third round of 73 gave him his total that was good enough for tied-18th.

Tripp Summerlin shot 74 in rounds two and three after starting off the tournament with a 71 to finish +3 (219) and tied-23rd overall.

Patrick Moriarty finished tied-31st with a tournament total of 223. He had a 71 first round, 73 second round and a 79 final round to finish +7 for the tournament. 

Alex Burris and Thomas Hodges finished right behind them with +10 (tied-43rd) and +14 (tied-55th) performances, respectively. Burris totaled 226 after 75 (round one), 73 (round two) and 78 (round three) efforts while Hodges finished with 230, shooting a 75 (round one), 77 (round two) and a final 78. 

The Mountaineers best round as a team came in round two when they posted a 288 when they moved up to tied for fifth (+4). Moriarty and Watson were both dead even, tied-20th with 144s, including Watson’s 68 on day two. Summerlin was tied-24th at one-over (145) after two rounds while Burris and Hodges both found themselves at four- and eight-over.  

Appalachian men’s golf will return to the course for their second-to-last fall tournament when they host the annual Donald Ross Intercollegiate at Mimosa Hills Country Club in Morganton, N.C., starting on Monday, Oct. 10.
