stand in second place after 18 holes at Yale MacDonald Cup
NEW HAVEN, Conn.--Riding the strong putting of senior captain Eric Vinal (Syracuse, N.Y./Nottingham), Binghamton shot a team round of 292 on the first 18 holes of the Yale MacDonald Cup. The Bearcats were in second place overall, trailing only Penn State (284) and finishing just in front of Lynn University (293) and Connecticut (293).
The 54-hole tournament will be played over two days, with 27 holes being played each day. The scores of the final 36 holes will be reported following the conclusion of the tournament on Sunday afternoon.
Individually, Vinal shot a 2-under-par 68 to finish tied for second place with two other players. On the par-70 Yale Golf Course, Vinal hit 16-of-18 greens in regulation and drained four birdies in posting his first sub-par round at the collegiate level.
"I'm really happy for Eric," head coach Nick Lasky said. "He was putting very well today, and his scores could have been even lower."
Senior Joe Kunz (Webster, N.Y.) carded a 74 to tie for 26th place, while sophomore Kevin Crawford (Lockport, N.Y.) and freshman Jeff Wolniewicz (West Seneca, N.Y.) each shot 75 to tie for 35th overall.
Also of note, Kunz captured the long drive competition that was held after Friday's practice round. Kunz bested the other 17 participants with a drive of 299 yards.
