LAST TIME OUT
BU is fresh off a fourth place finish at the season-opening Turning Stone Tiger Intercollegiate this past weekend. They registered a 54-hole team total of 880 (+16), besting 10 other programs at the Missouri hosted event. Powered by a final round in which three players shot under par, Binghamton moved up a spot in the leaderboard from the day’s prior standing. Senior Bryce Edmister led the way over the weekend, finishing in fourth place out of 75 competitors with a total score of 210 (-6). Edmister’s 54-hole total is the lowest in program history, besting former BU standout Jake Katz who shot -5 at the Cornell Invitational back in 2010.
While most freshmen across the collegiate landscape were getting their feet wet in their first tournament action, newcomer Kyle Wambold put himself in the hunt down the stretch, later finishing in a tie for seventh place at the conclusion of the Turning Stone event. Wambold, a native of Macungie, Pa., strung together rounds of 72-70-71. The talented freshman buried 35 pars and finished second on the squad with 11 birdies over the course of the event—Edmister tied for the tournament lead with 14 birdies overall.
Josh Holling turned in a solid performance as well, particularly in the final round when he paced the Bearcats with a team-low 70 (-2). Holling moved up 14 places on the individual leaderboard with his play on Monday, finishing in 30th place.
