HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – University of Cincinnati senior David Tepe (Liberty Township, Ohio. Lakota East) moved up 15 spots to finish tied for 10th place Tuesday in final-round action of the Marshall Invitational at the Guyan Golf and Country Club (6,523 yards, par 71).
Tepe fired his best round of the fall season Tuesday, posting a 3-under par 68 to complete the tournament with an even-par 70-75-68=213. Xavier’s Korey Ward earned medalist honors with a 9-under par 69-66-69=204.
The Bearcats improved their team score after each round of the tournament, finishing in 10th place at 19-over par 294-289-288=871. Virginia Tech won the team title after registering a 16-under par 277-271-288=836.
UC freshman Emerson Newsome (Hoschton, Ga./Mill Creek) shot a 1-over 72 in the final round to record the second-best finish by a Bearcat. Newsome tied for 31st place at 5-over 76-70-72. Sophomore Michael Wolf (Cincinnati, Ohio/Moeller) was 3-over par on Tuesday with a 74. He finished tied for 42nd position at 74-72-74=220. Other Bearcat finishers included freshman Blake Hamilton (Union, Ky./Ryle), tying for 56th place at 10-over par 74-72-77=223 and sophomore Jared Howard (Dublin, Ohio/Jerome), tying for 75th place at 15-over par 79-75-74=228.
“Today, our play was a tale of two different nine holes of golf,” UC head coach Doug Martin said. “We shot 8-over on our first nine holes and rallied to shoot 4-under on the back nine. Our team scores show we played one of our most consistent events in sometime. We must continue to eliminate the unforced errors and convert more opportunities, but I am very impressed with the never give up attitude this team is showing.”
UC will next compete in the Cardinal Intercollegiate, Sept. 24-25 in Louisville, Ky.
