LAKE WORTH, Fla. – It was a strong finish for the Miami University golf team as it shot a final round score of eight-over par 292 at the FAU Spring Break Championship on Sunday. The RedHawks finished in fourth place out of 18 teams with a total team score of 26-over par. No. 39 UCF won the tournament at 14-over par.
“I think this week shows the progress we’re making this spring,” said head coach Zac Zedrick. “Due to a change in the wind direction, the golf course was playing completely different today than it did the past two days. However, we adjusted and performed well. If we look at our finish down here as a foundation for how we perform the rest of the season, and not be satisfied, then our best golf is still in front of us.”
The best round by a Miami player on Sunday came from freshman Bud Radis. He shot a one-over par 72 to finish his debut tournament in 38th place at 12-over par.
Junior Austin Kelly shot a final round of three-over par 74. He was the RedHawks top finisher at FAU, tying for 11th individually at four-over par. Sophomores Scott Cahill and Luke Shaughnessy each finished with a two-over par 73. Cahill tied for 21st at seven-over par, while Shaughnessy tied for 26th at nine-over par. Senior Brett Tomfohrde shot a 75 and finished tied for 39th at 14-over par.
The Miami golf team returns to action next weekend when it participates in the Hoosier Invitational. The RedHawks will play 36 holes on Saturday and finish the event with one final round of 18 holes on Sunday, Apr. 7.
