Scots finish 12th at Transylvania Invitational

The Maryville College men's golf program, under the direction of first year head coach Anthony Monaco, finished 12th at the Transylvania Invitational after posting a three-round score of 308-299-308 (915). Wittenberg University claimed the team title with a six-over-par team attack on the University Club of Kentucky Golf Course in Lexington, Kentucky.

Matthew Leemann of Piedmont College blistered the course to claim the individual title with a 68-75-69 (212) for a four-under-par championship score.

Maryville's top individual performer was Garrett Compliment. The senior from Danville, Indiana finished tied for 32nd among 88 golfers with a 75-75-76 (226) for a ten-over-par finish. Jacob Dunlap, a freshman from Tampa, Florida, finished his first collegiate match with a 78-74-75 (227). Fellow freshman Jake Duncan, from Blacksburg, Virginia tallied a 76-74-78 (228) for a 12-over-par effort. Duncan finished 45th while Dunlap finished 39th overall. Additional scorers for the Scots included Andy Cofer 79-76-79 (234) and Brady Orr 84-88-79 (251).

"Our inability to manage a course and finish rounds showed during this tournament," stated Coach Monaco. "I believe we will battle and grow all year with our young team but hopefully we have learned from this tournament and will be better from here moving forward. We've got a lot to work on the next couple weeks before our next tournament."

The Scots will return home to prepare for their next tournament on September 16-17 in Harrisonburg, Virginia. They will compete in the Tom Kinder Invitational.
