Oregon State Men’s Golf Finishes Seventh In South Bend
SOUTH BEND, Ind. – The Oregon State men's golf team wrapped up play at the Fighting Irish Classic Tuesday, finishing at 1-over par 281 on the final 18 holes to finish 10-over (282-287-281—844) and in a tie for seventh place overall.
"I'm really happy to see Carson Enright and Nolan Thoroughgood play like they did today," head coach Jon Reehoorn said. "A great finish by Carson over his last five-to-six holes to post 2-under, which I think is a great learning lesson. You just try to make good decisions and not try and force things."
Carson Barry led Oregon State with a tie for 21st after shooting a 3-over 73 on the final day of action. Overall, he ended the trip with a 1-over 211 (66-72-73). He totaled 10 birdies over three rounds, and posted an eagle on the 17th hole Tuesday.
Enright, playing in his first team tournament, also finished with 10 birdies over 54 holes. He tied for 30th after shooting a 4-over 214 (73-73-68). Four of his 10 birdies came in Tuesday's action, doing so on holes 13, 14, 16 and 17.
Both Thoroughgood and Jackson Lake tied for 33rd, shooting 5-over 215. As Reehoorn mentioned, Thoroughgood finished with a 3-under 67 on Tuesday. He tallied five birdies in the third round.
Lake did so after finishing at par in round one, then going 2-over 72 in round two and 3-over 73 on Tuesday. He finished with six birdies.
Brandon Eyre ended the two-day event tied for 44th. He shot 8-over 218 in the three rounds, including a 5-over 75 on Tuesday. He finished with five birdies in South Bend.
Oregon State returns to action Monday when the Beavers host the Oregon State Invitational at Trysting Tree.
