Verona, N.Y.—The Bearcats held steady throughout the weekend with a 9th place finish at the Turning Stone Tiger Intercollegiate. Sophomore Bryce Edmister paced Binghamton with a career-best 54-hole total of 220 (+4).
Binghamton came into the final round of play in ninth place with a score of 595 (+19). Their effort to climb up the leaderboard on Monday fell short as they remained in ninth place at the tournament’s end. On what was a cold and rainy day, BU shot a final round 311 (+23), singling their highest 18-hole total of the tournament. Baylor, the tournament’s champion, won by a considerable margin of 11 strokes over second place TCU.
Edmister started off his 2011 fall season with a one-under-par score of 71, which also tied his career-best round set last year at the Seton Hall Invitational. He followed up his stellar opening round with scores of 73 and 76, tying him with three others at the 18th spot. This marked the third top-20 finish in his young career at Binghamton.
With very consistent rounds of 75-72-77 (224), junior David Cellura’s 8-over-par total was strong enough for a 25th place finish. Much like Edmister, he was able to put together a career-best tying round of 72 (E).
Newcomers Jack Sedgewick and Josh Holling put forth very respectable scorecards in their BU debuts. Sedgewick,a freshman from Ontario, finished tied for 46th. Meanwhile, Hollings (T-50th), who most recently transferred from Corning CC, finished just two shots behind.
Binghamton returns to action next Monday as they head to Cambridge, MD to take on the University of Maryland at the River Marsh Golf Club.
