After edging the competition last week for the win, the ORU men’s golf team got edged out this week at the UNO Invitational in Nebraska.
The Golden Eagles took third, only two shots out of first place with a three round score of 896. Omaha and Weber State tied for the win at 894.
ORU came into the final round trailing by a manageable four strokes, but could only cut the deficit in half.
Scott Newell led the team with his second consecutive third place finish and a three over score. Will Paulsell and Trevor Torgerson both recorded top 20 finishes.
Through the first two tournaments, ORU has recorded a first and a third place finish. Last year, ORU recorded only three top three finishes in their 10 tournaments.
The Golden Eagles will have a long break before their next tournament. They will participate in the Bill Ross Intercollegiate hosted by UMKC from October 13-14.
