ITHACA, N.Y.—After three rounds, Binghamton golf ended up in the fifth spot at the conclusion of the 2013 Cornell Invitational. BU finished up the second round with a score of 299 in the morning and wrapped up Sunday with a final round 310 for a team score of 909. Senior Bryce Edmister continued his strong play to begin the season, racking up his third straight top-5 individual finish with a T-3 standing out of 77 individuals competing.
Following second round action, Binghamton sat in good position at second place, just two strokes behind leaders Towson. Edmister, juniors Josh Holling and Jack Sedgewick guided the way early Sunday morning with three scorecards of 74 (+3). The Bearcats failed to make their move in the final round Sunday, slipping 14 strokes shy of tournament champions Towson. The win from the CAA school snaps Binghamton’s winning streak of four straight victories at the Cornell Invite.
After an opening round 69 (-2), which was the lowest single round all weekend, Edmister compiled a 54-hole total of 218 (+5). He paced BU once again in Ithaca, tallying a team-best nine birdies. His third place finish is the 13th career top-10 standing for the senior lefty.
Junior Josh Holling struggled on Sunday, but managed to grab a 21st place finish with a score of 228. Holling shot a final round 81 (+10) at the tricky Robert Trent Jones GC. Jack Sedgewick and freshman Kyle Wambold held steady during the 54-hole stretch, registering 28th and 34th place finishes. Sedgewick made a tournament-high 38 pars over the weekend.
Christopher Crawford of Drexel was the tournament’s individual medalist, scoring a two-day total of 210 (-3). Crawford won by six strokes over Dartmouth’s Jeffrey Lang. As a team, Drexel finished runner-up, five strokes behind tournament champions Towson.
Binghamton will have a week off, then turn their attention to their home event, the second annual Binghamton Fall Invitational at Hiawatha Landing in Apalachin, N.Y.. The tournament will take place on both Sunday, October 6 through Monday the 7th. Play begins at 8 a.m. each day.
