(-5) wins Dartmouth Invitational
Bearcats finish tied for third in field of 17 schools
HANOVER, N.H. -- Senior golfer Adam Fuchs (Plainview, N.Y.) shot a two-under-par 68 on the final day of the Dartmouth Invitational, capturing his first medalist honors this season. Fuchs opened the tournament with a 67 on Saturday, setting a course-record at the Hanover CC course. Fuchs two-round total of 67-68=135 was a full five strokes ahead of the field of 97 golfers. At five-under, his finish (relative to par) marks the best individual tournament score in program history. He is the only BU golfer to finish a tournament of more than 18 holes with a score below par.
As a team, the Bearcats (294-294=588) finished in a tie for third place with Harvard and fellow America East school Hartford. Yale won the tournament with a two-day score of 578 and was followed in second place by Central Connecticut, seven strokes back. The third-place finish ended a modest two-tournament winning streak for Binghamton. BU began the season with wins at the Colgate Invitational and Cornell Invitational. Junior golfer Joe Kunz (Webster, N.Y.) was the medalist in each of those tournaments.
Fuchs recorded birdies at holes 5, 8 and 16 on Sunday, and has now finished among the top 10 golfers in all three tournaments this season, as well as his last 13 tournaments dating back to last fall. On Saturday, Fuchs soared to the lead with five birdies, including three on the front side to quickly establish his position. Fuchs birdied 1, 3, 5, 10 and 15 in the first round. With his performance this weekend, Fuchs lowered his stroke average this season to a sterling 71.8.
Junior golfer Keith Hendrickson (Syosset, N.Y.) finished in a tie for 32nd place after carding rounds of 76-74=150. Classmate Joe Kunz (Webster, N.Y.), who was a medalist in the Bearcats' first two tournaments this season, was one stroke back with rounds of 75-76=151, in a tie for 37th place. First-year golfer Brad Moulton (Orangeville, Ontario) posted scores of 76-77=153 to tie for 46th place, and junior Eric Vinal (Syracuse, N.Y.) had scores of 80-76=156 to finish tied for 60th.
Binghamton will compete in a pair of one-day invitationals in the upcoming week. On Saturday the Bearcats will take part in the Lion Collegiate Invitational, held at Great Hope GC in Maryland. Next Monday BU will golf in the Rehoboth Beach Fall Invite at Kings Creek CC in Delaware.
