Columbia, MO—The Binghamton men’s golf team wrapped up their final round on Tuesday at the Columbia Orthopaedic Group Mizzou Intercollegiate with a ninth place finish out of 15 teams. The Bearcats shot a combined 304 (+16) on the final day to finish up the tournament with a three-round total of 908. Host team Missouri was able to cruise to victory for the second year in a row, beating out runner-up Iowa State by 20 strokes.
Sophomore Bryce Edmister proved to be Binghamton’s most consistent player during the two day event, finishing up the final round in 16th place out of 75 individuals. The lefty opened on Monday with rounds of 73 and 75 before closing out on Tuesday by tallying another 73 to conclude the event with a three-round total of 221 (+5). On his way to a one-over-par final round, Edmister registered four birdies and five bogeys. The sophomore began his final round on the back nine with a birdie on the par-5 tenth before bogeying the 12th and 14th holes. He recovered on the 15th with a birdie, and then proceeded to par the next three holes to finish even through the first half of his final round. At the turn, Edmister bogeyed two straight before tallying birdies on two of the next three holes. He shot par on his next three holes until bogeying the final hole, giving him a final round total of 73 (+1).
Senior Mike Surdey turned in Binghamton’s best round of the tournament with an opening round of 72 (E). He wasn’t able to keep up his hot start and finished his second round with a 78, placing him 28th overall after the first day. On Tuesday, the senior managed three birdies to give him a final round of 75, moving him up six spots on the leader board and giving him a respectable T-22nd place finish.
