ELMIRA, N.Y.—Three current Binghamton University golfers participated in the 90th annual NYS Amateur Championship hosted by Elmira Country Club this past week. Senior David Cellura, junior Paul Andrews and sophomore Josh Holling teed it up with 150 of New York State’s best amateur golfers, but did not advance to the final two rounds as the best 46 scores moved along to the third and fourth rounds.
Cellura had the best showing out of Binghamton’s three competitors with a two-day total of 157 (+13). In the second round on Wednesday, the senior to-be battled his way to a 75 (+3) on the ultra challenging layout at Elmira CC. Meanwhile, Holling was consistent during his two rounds stringing together nearly identical rounds of 79, while Andrews finished up with scores of 83 and 82.
As a whole, Binghamton’s representation at the NYS amateur championship saw a combined action in 22 tournaments in 2011-12, including five top-20 individual finishes. Cellura wrapped up his junior campaign with an excellent scoring average of 74.8 (second on the team), including a career-best sixth-place finish at the Philadelphia Big-5 Invitational last fall. With his strong play, the Penfield, N.Y. native earned second-team All-America Sky honors in the spring. Andrews had a break-through sophomore season at Binghamton participating in six tournaments. His highlight came back in late September when he guided the Bearcats to their third straight tournament crown at the Cornell Invitational with a runner-up individual finish. Holling, who transfered from Corning CC, also competed in six tournaments in 2011-12 with his best finish coming at the Cornell Invite, placing tied for 25th individually.
