IOWA CITY, Iowa – The Miami University men’s golf team shot a final round of 10-over par 298 to finish in 11th place at the Hawkeye Invitational on Sunday. The RedHawks were 31-over par for the tournament. The host Iowa Hawkeyes won the event at 24-under par.
"Today was definitely better as far as how we competed is concerned," said head coach Zac Zedrick. "However, this week showed that we have a lot of work in front of us and can never take a day or round for granted."
Sophomore Mark MacDonald had the best round of the day for the Red and White. He shot a one-under par 73 to finish the tournament at 12-over par and a tie for 46th place. Ben Peacock was Miami’s top overall finisher. He shot a 74 on Sunday to finish at three-over par and tied for 21st place.
"Benny had a nice week," said Zedrick. "He didn't have his best with him, but did a good job of managing his misses and minimizing his mistakes to have a good finish."
Luke Shaughnessy and Brett Tomfohrde each finished the event tied for 39th overall at 10-over par. Freshman Scott Cahill shot a two-over par 74 for his third round and finished tied for 51st at 14-over par.
Miami will travel to West Lafayette, Ind. next weekend for its final tournament before the Mid-American Conference Championship. The RedHawks will play 36 holes at the Boilermaker Invitational on Saturday, Apr. 21, before finishing the event with one final round of 18 holes on Sunday.
