Men's Golf

The Michigan men's golf team struggled at the Boilermaker Invitational this weekend.

As it turned out, leaving Saturday's results behind them would be easier said than done, as the Wolverines finished tied for 11th among a 15-team field in their season finale.

Baylor’s home course advantage clearly showed, as it finished with an overwhelming 32-stroke lead over second place Houston to win.

Though Michigan ended up shooting an 870 for an impressive third at the tournament, the event did not begin as well as it hoped for.

When the first day of the Inverness Intercollegiate in Toledo, Ohio, wrapped up for the Michigan men’s golf team, the Wolverines weren’t where they wanted to be. After shooting a team score of 592, Michigan found itself in ninth place out of 13 teams.

With the dryer and faster grass that the Michigan men's golf team is used to practicing and competing on in the Midwest, it struggled to settle in when it encountered the unfamiliar conditions.

Heavy rains and potential flooding from Hurricane Patricia in Dallas have resulted in a cancellation of the Royal Oaks Intercollegiate.

It was the first time Michigan finished in the top five at the Inverness Club.

Michigan’s top five golfers combined for a score of 895, good for an 11th-place tie in the tournament.
