MACDONALD AND CRUSADERS TURN IN BACK TO BACK FIRST PLACE FINISHES
Loudon, Tenn—The North Greenville men’s golf team continued its lat season tear this week, turning in its second first place finish in two tournaments, after taking the pole position in the Tennessee River Rumble with a two day total of 587.
The Crusaders finished day one with a comfortable 12 stroke lead, after carding a team total 286. Day two seemed to challenge NGU however, as Walters State put together a solid second round, to finish the day within just three strokes of North Greenville, putting together one of just two sub 300 rounds on the day.
North Greenville fought off the Senators’ comeback, thanks in part to Tucker MacDonald. MacDonald took home the individual title, shooting even par. His second day 71 was the only under par round of the day. Also turning in a top five finish for North Greenville was last week’s tournament winner, Josh ONeal. ONeal shot a 146 overall, earning a fourth place finish, and a spot on the All-Tournament Team.
North Greenville had one other top 10 finisher in Mac Bradley who carded a 148, earning himself a tie for 10th. Christian Constance rounded out the top 20 finishes for North Greenville with a 17th place finish after shooting a two round total of 151, while Sam Goodnight shot a 156, finishing him in a tie for the 28th position. The Crusaders will now turn their attention to the
Conference Carolinas Tournament, which will be held April 13-15 in Greensboro, North Carolina. NGU will take on its fellow conference members at the Bryan Parks Championship Course.
