Men’s golf finishes third out of 10 teams at Schreiner Shoot-Out
The men’s golf team finished in third place out of 10 teams at the Schreiner Shoot-Out at Comanche Trace on March 8. The Saints shot a total of 312 in round one and 303 in round two to finish at 615.
Head Coach Arnie Martinez said, “This event was a tough test. The players battled through cold and windy conditions on the first day. We were in third place and six shots off the lead after the first day. The last day of the tournament we grinded and played better. I’m very proud of the resiliency of the team. This tournament reminded the team how important every shot is. Oliver Gaisford (FR/Canterbury, U.K.) finished in fifth place after playing well on the second day. His play has been impressive this season. We’ll be ready for the next event. Go Saints.”
