Junior Josh Holling shot a third round 70 (-1) powering Binghamton to a score of 286 (+2) and a third place finish at the Wildcat Invitational on Tuesday afternoon. The Beacats shot a three-round total of 896 and finished just 4 strokes behind tournament champions Columbia. Freshman Kyle Wambold recorded his fourth top-10 finish of the season with a third-place finish on Tuesday. Wambold had a 54-hole total of 219 (+6) to pace Binghamton in their sixth top-5 team finish of the year.
Holling had a terrific day of scoring on Tuesday, collecting four birdies and an eagle on his way to a one-under 70. After a double bogey on 11, Holling played fantastic down the stretch. He shot -3 in the round’s final seven holes, including his eagle on the 553 yard par 5 17th. The junior from Horseheads, NY moved 32 places to claim a 26th place finish at the Villanova-hosted event.
Wambold was one of three BU players who shot 72 from White Manor Country Club. He played extremely steady on the day and birdied two of his last four holes down the stretch. He finished out the back-nine with an even par 36 and finished just three strokes off earning his first career runner-up finish.
Both Jack Sedgewick and Bryce Edmister also tallied 72 on Tuesday, pushing Binghamton to their best round of the two-day tournament by 11 strokes. Edmister started the day in 23rd place, but was able to move up five places by finishing in 18th at the conclusion of Tuesday’s round. Sedgewick climbed 18 spots to finish just outside the top-20 (T-22).
Columbia squeaked out the tournament title by shooting the tournament’s low round from White Manor CC. They shot a 284 on Tuesday and bested second-place Army by just one stroke to collect the win. Individually, Drexel’s Christopher Crawford won by four strokes to capture medalist honors with a 54-hole total of 212 (-1).
The Bearcats will have nearly two weeks off before competing once again on Sunday, April 13 in the Fairleigh Dickinson Spring Invitational. The Knights host a 36-hole event that will be held at Crystal Springs CC in Hamburg, NJ.
