Stags Golf Finishes Second At CMS Co-Ed Invitational
This week's CMS Co-Ed Invitational saw close, exciting golf play as CMS, California Baptist, and the University of Redlands battled each other until the final holes of the seven team invitational to determine the team champion. After two rounds on day one, California Baptist had a team score of 568 with six of ten individual rounds completed under par. CMS would find themselves only one stroke behind with four of their ten rounds under par. It would be Redlands who completed the top three on day one with a score of 576 bringing in two individual rounds under par.
Day two would provide much of the same excitement with all three teams posting their highest team rounds of the tournament. In round three, only one individual would post a round under par, Tim Tait of Cal. Baptist, which would ultimately be the difference. Tain Lee and Brad Shigezawa would lead the way for the Stags by not posting a single round over par and shooting a combined 14 under par for the tournament. However, the Stags would end the tournament in second place, one stroke behind Cal. Baptist's team score of 866. Redlands would take third place with a total of 872, 32 strokes ahead of CSU-San Marcos in fourth place.
The top five individual performers in the men's event were within nine strokes of each other and scored as follows:
1) Tain Lee (CMS) - 207
2) Brad Shigezawa (CMS) - 211
3) Tim Tait (CBU) - 214
4) Jeremy Sanders (Redlands) - 215
5) Anthony Estes (Redlands) - 216
Coach Bim Jollymour had the following to say about his team's fall competitions: "Our number one and two golfers finished first and second in both tournaments this fall, and both finished the season under par."
He added that "nine of our 24 scored team rounds were under par."
The Stags are looking forward to a competitive spring season in which they hope to be successful at both the conference and national levels.
