Even with a tournament-best final round score of 297, the
Michigan men’s golf team placed 13th out of 14 teams at this
weekend’s Cola-Cola Duke Golf Classic.
The team got off to a rough start, tallying rounds of 310 and
305 the first two days of the tournament. The Wolverines redeemed
themselves in the final round, but their tournament total of 912
was not enough to push them past Virginia Tech, Charlotte or Drake,
who claimed 10th through 12th.
Junior Christain Vozza was tied for fifth at the end of the
first day with two rounds of even-par 72. But after some less
successful rounds on the final two days, Vozza dropped back to a
tie for 21st place overall.
Other highlights included a 2-under-par round of 70 by sophomore
Kevin Dore, as well as another even-par 72 round from freshman
Fifth-year senior Rob Tighe (34th) and Ottenweller (49th) were
the only other Wolverines to place in the top 50.
