Golf: LWC men win fourth straight tournament
Memphis, TN - The Lindsey Wilson men's golf team won the NAIA Memphis Shootout after totaling 854 (281-284-289) stokes. It is the fourth straight tournament the Blue Raiders have won this season as they claimed the event by nine strokes over second-place Southwestern Christian.
Sebastian Sandin and Ivan Ninkovic finished in a tie for second place and paced all LWC golfers at two under in the field of 75 competitors. Janik Hawlitzky finished just behind in a tie for fifth at one-over. All five Blue Raiders competing finished inside the top 16.
The event was held at TPC Southwind, a par-71, 6,540-yard design.
Sandin opened play with the low round of the tournament, a three-under mark of 68 before posting a one-over score of 72 during his second 18 holes. He closed out his third round with an even-par 71 to post a 211-stroke total. He played the par-5s to five under as he set the best scoring mark on par4s at even-par for the event.
Ninkovic tied with Sandin after posting a 211 (70-71-70). He managed three birdies and three bogies during his even-par opening round before a one-over front nine on his second round led to four birdies and a two-under mark on his back nine, to shoot one under. He played his final round to a one-under mark adding four more birdies to his total as he finished with 12 birdies for the event.
Hawlitzky played the course even par or better across his opening two rounds but played to a three-over mark during today's final round. He posted a 214 (71-69-74). Hawlitzky played his best golf on the par5s and finished his three rounds at four under while adding a one-under mark on the par3s.
Rio Saigal finished tied for 9th at 219 (72-73-74) as Callum Waugh took 16th with a 222 (74-72-76).
The Blue Raiders were the most efficient team on the course as they racked up 168 pars and 49 birdies as the pars led the field of 15 teams and the birdies were the second best.
LWC managed a scoring average of 3.03 strokes on par3s and a 4.20 stroke mark on par4s which were both the best averages across the two rounds. They finished the event with a 17-under mark on par5s, resulting in a 4.72 scoring average and a tie for the best average in the field.
Philipp Pakosch of Southwestern Christian won the event by one stroke with a 210 (72-68-70) which led Southwestern Christian to a second-place result of 863 (286-290-287) and nine-strokes off the Blue Raiders.
Lindsey Wilson returns to the course on Oct. 27-28 when they compete at the MSC Fall Invitational in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The event is being held at Bowling Green Country Club.
