COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Berry College men’s golf team shot a final round 279 and won the prestigious Gordin Invitational with a three-round tally of 854. Full Results
The Vikings (286-289-279) finished eight shots better than second place Methodist (862).
BC led by two shots after the first round, one after the second 18, and kept the foot on the gas during the final round. Berry’s 279 was the lowest round of the tournament and its best of the season.
The Vkings, which won the Rhodes Fall Preview last week, have won back-to-back events for the first time in its NCAA DIII era.
Eddy Black had the hot club for the Vikings on Tuesday. He shot a minus five 67 and made six birdies and one bogie on the day. Black had four straight birdies on holes six-through-nine. His 218 total put him tied for 19th place.
“I am really proud of the guys for hanging in there today,” said Head Coach Brian Farrer. “They played smart and were committed to the golf shots. There is a lot of history at The Gordin and its great to have Berry’s name now on the list of champions.”
This year marked the 25th Gordin Collegiate Classic. The event is named in honor of Dr. Richard Gordin, a collegiate golf ambassador for more than 50 years.
The Vikings–ranked ninth in the most recent national poll–return to action at the Golfweek Preview. The three-day tournament begins Oct. 11 in Sandestin, Fla.
