Fifth Place Finish at Point Loma Propels Stags to Seventh in the Nation

The CMS golf team made their inaugural visit to the Point Loma Nazarene University Smee Builders Invitational hosted at Steele Canyon Golf Club, finishing in fifth with a three round total of 899. After shooting a disappointing 308 in the first round and sitting in 11th out of 15, the Stags rallied in the afternoon of the 36 hole day to shoot 292. The two round total of 600 put the Stags in a tie for fifth with Wayland Baptist University, just two strokes behind fourth place Cal State East Bay at 598.

On day two, the Stags played steady enough to hold on to fifth in tough conditions. The Stags were led by a ninth place finish from Tain Lee (FR, San Juan Capistrano), who shot rounds of 76, 72, 71 on the par 71 course to finish at +6. Co-Captain Kyle Casella (JR, Tiburon) shot rounds of 79, 72, 76 to share 21st place. Co-Captain Jon Morris (JR, Santa Rosa) and Michael Liu tied for 32nd with respective three-day total of 82, 71, 77 and 78, 77, 75. Jay Tymkovich (FR, Broomfield, CO) shot 75, 77, 80 to finish in a tie for 36th place.

With another strong finish, the Stags improved on their debut 10th place national ranking, jumping two teams to move to seventh in the Golfstat national ranking for Division III. The Stags are back in action on Monday, March 9 for SCIAC #2 at Goose Creek Golf Club.
