Men’s Golf Takes Title; Foley Breaks Record

The Penn State men’s golf team won the Rutherford Intercollegiate Tournament this weekend with a total score of 879, beating out second-place Towson by an impressive 20 strokes. The event title should come as no surprise, considering Penn State was the host of the 3-day tourney. The Blue Course proved to be a welcome setting for the Lions as they won the Rutherford for the 21st time in its 34-year history.

Kevin Foley, a senior hailing from Somerville, New Jersey, won the individual tournament title by being the only person to shoot in the red for the weekend. His 2-under 211 (70-72-69) helped put him 8 strokes ahead of his nearest competitor once all the golfers made it back to the clubhouse on Sunday. Foley’s 6th win of his college career was a record-breaker, breaking a tie between him and former Penn States Robert Rohanna and Dirk Ayers for most individual tournament wins.

This win helped the Lions build momentum as they head into the Big Ten Championship this upcoming weekend in Minneapolis. Those reaching the scoring benchmark there will move onto the NCAA Regionals being held in the middle of May, where they will have a shot to qualify for the NCAA Championships.
