Men’s Golf Takes Sixth In Kepler Intercollegiate

The No. 29 Penn State men’s golf team traveled to Columbus, Ohio for the Kepler Intercollegiate on the Scarlet Course at Ohio State. Five Nittany Lion golfers led the way for the sixth place finish for Penn State with sophomore Cole Miller finishing the highest for the Nittany Lions with a +5, which earned him a tie for tenth place. Penn State finished as a team +30, trailing UNLV (+18), UAB (+23), Michigan State (+23), Ohio State (+26), and Maryland (+29).

How It Happened

Round One on Saturday started out positively for the Nittany Lions as they finished in a tie for fifth place with a +15. At the end of Round One, Cole Miller was in a tie for ninth place with a score of +2. Miller started his day with a birdie on the first hole. He bogeyed the fourth and the seventh holes to go to +1. He finished +1 on the back nine with a birdie and two bogeys to finish +2 in Round One. Freshman Charles Huntzinger was tied for 23rd with a score 0f +3, and JD Dornes, Chris Houston, and Geoff Vartelas rounded out the first stage of the tournament with scores of +4, +6, and +7 respectively.

At the beginning of Round Two, the Nittany Lions looked to climb in the standings with hopefully positive rounds from Miller and the four others. Miller made one birdie and four bogeys as he ended his day at +3 to finish his tournament in a tie for tenth place and a score of +5. Huntzinger finished his round at +3, matching his total from Round One. JD Dornes improved his total with a finish of +2 in Round Two to finish +6. Houston finished with a total score of +10, and Vartelas finished at +13. At the end of Round Two, consistency was evident for the Nittany Lions as they finished with another +15, ending their tournament at +30 and in sixth place.
