April 2, 2013Tweet
Grasonville, MD—Binghamton completed play at the Whiting-Turner Invitational Tuesday with a final round score of 319 (+31) at the Prospect Bay CC. In the 24-team tournament field, the Bearcats finished seventh. Freshman Jesse Perkins secured his best individual finish of his young career; posting a T-16 finish.
BU entered Tuesday in fifth place, but was unable to make any charge on a windy day at the par 72 Prospect Bay course. Only two players were able to record a round in the 70’s, led by junior Bryce Edmister’s low round of 76. William & Mary took home the team title with a score of 888 (+24). The Tribe won by 25 strokes and were paced by Jeremy Wells’ 54-hole total of 216 (E). Wells won individual medalist honors.
Over the course of the event, freshman Jesse Perkins was Binghamton’s steadiest performer. The talented freshman recorded 76 on both Sunday and Monday, and wrapped up the Towson Invite with a score of 77 today. Despite a troublesome front nine, Perkins was able to collect himself on the back, firing a 37 (+1). His lone birdie on the day came on the 13th hole (582 yards). Before Tuesday, his previous best finish was a T-34 at the CCSU Blue Devils Invite in early September.
Like a majority of the field, sophomore Jack Sedgewick had an eventful day out on the windy course. Sedgewick’s round consisted of eight pars, five bogeys, three double bogeys and two birdies. The second-year player ended up 30th out of 119-man field.
Following uncharacteristic rounds of 81 and 82, junior Bryce Edmister had a nice bounce back round. Last year’s team MVP sunk a team-high four birdies in his round of 76. Two of his birdies came on par 5’s, including at the 608 yard 18th.
After two strong rounds near the top half of the leaderboard, senior David Cellura was unable to grind out a top-20 finish. With an 85 on Tuesday, he dropped to 40th place at tournament’s end.
